Motion Notion 2014 – Expected to Sell Out in Its 15th Year
Motion Notion – Electronic music, art, nature, and boundless amounts of fun…”the kind you don’t have to go looking for ’cause it’s coming right at you”.
Embraced by nature and surrounded by breathtaking peaks of the Rocky Mountains, this festival is brimming with feelings of contentment, peace and community. It’s not surprising that in its 15th year it is expected to sell out for the first time. MoNo as it’s affectionately called by its attendees started from the heart and has grown through grassroots channels to become one of Canada’s premier transformational events.
This years line up is a mighty list of international bass rocking talent! Over 40 headliners including favorites like Gaudi, The Funk Hunters, Stickybuds, Bluetech, Doctor Werewolf and Longwalkshortdock. Head over to www.motionnotion.com/artists for the full list plus artist bios, photos and audio samples!
Artisan vendors are plentiful with quality shops like The Fairies Pyjamas, Electrofur, Earth Nynja Leather andFlowlab. Consuming food will not just be about survival or keeping you full of energy for a dancing marathon, this years artisan food choices are sure to have your taste buds salivating.
Performers and artists are more than welcome and show up in strength! Anyone can perform where and when they wish so long as they abide by all laws of the land and don’t destroy anything. As well as twelve large camp fires, Bryan Smart’s Dragon Fire and sculptures will be returning for a third year keeping MoNoers warm during the chilly B.C nights.
Although the festival is designed to give you the freedom and comfort to enjoy the great outdoors while listening to incredible music, it doesn’t come without rules. The festival values and codes of conduct are simple but strong:
1) Respect & accept other’s space, time, and opinion.
2) Non-violent conflict resolution.
3) Care for nature.
Motion Notion has a level of intimacy you simply won’t find at larger events. The air is fresh, the grass is green and the sence of community is genuine. It simply contains all the right ingredients for a transformational event that will exceed all your expectations.
