Even though it seems like there’s a never-ending supply of festival’s to attend these days I like to think I keep a pretty eye on what’s going on in the festival scene enough to know most of the major players. When I heard about the boutique festival Motion Notion I couldn’t believe I had never heard of it.
Then when got my hands on they newly released Official After Movie: not only did it look absolutely incredible and feature many of my favorite artists but I also found out they are going into their 18th year!
The scenic video shows incredible shots of British Columbia with beautiful landscapes interwoven with shots of the stunning stages as people dance and celebrate the freedom of the festival through a wide variety of flow arts. Not only is there LED hooping allowed but fire performers are actually encouraged to come and flow at the festival which is huge! The video makes me think of Motion Notion as an absolutely incredible transformation festival that will provide plenty of fresh clean air deep in the Rocky Mountains with tons of dirty bass beats.
If the video isn’t enough to convince you there is a Canadian conspiracy to keep this insane festival to themselves check out the list of incredible artists who have attended in the past: AU5, Crystal Method, Infected Mushroom, Justin Jay, Mr. Bill, Freq Nasty, Krafty Kuts, Aphrodite, Stanton Warriors, Liquid Stranger, Dirtyphonics, Noisia, Infected Mushroom, Sphongle, Stickybuds and The Funk Hunters!!!
Motion Notion Festival returning this August 24th – 28th at the historic Beaverfoot Lodge near Golden BC, Canada. Billed as an “intimate music, camping, and arts experience set in the pristine wilderness of North America.” Motion Notion Festival promises to offer a wealth of activities (including yoga and informative workshops) as well as riverside camping!
Tickets are available here and I will keep you updated when this year’s lineup is released. If past lineups are anything to go by it is bound to be stacked! The secret about this boutique Canadian camping festival is out and it looks like an incredible experience.
