Embarking on its 18th year, Canada’s longest-running bass and psytrance music and arts festival, Motion Notion lifts the veil of transcendence this August 24th-28th.
The event awakens the life force of the breathtaking forest surrounding historic Beaverfoot Lodge nestled in the mountains of Golden BC. Unveiling a pulsating lineup that perfectly aligns with the festival’s storied reputation for assembling some of the biggest names in electronic music alongside beloved emerging artists, Motion Notion prepares attendees for an auditory adventure of fantastical proportions. Channeling the heartbeat of the Rocky Mountains is dubstep legend and Firepower label boss Datsik alongside psytrance powerhouse Avalon who will be on hand with plenty of otherworldly vibes.
Straight out of Bristol and joining the ranks of 2017 headliners is OWSLA’s Koan Sound and fellow labelmates The M Machine, whose signature sound of melodic and upbeat underground house is sure to win the crowd’s hearts. Rounding out the bill’s top acts is Dim Mak’s own Dirtyphonics, who will deliver slamming drum & bass beats and the heaviest of basslines to the spellbinding grounds. Constructing an insanely eclectic sonic landscape to entice a vast community, Motion Notion shifts to embrace a more diverse musical lineup that features over 100 regional and international acts.
On curating a stellar lineup, Motion Notion’s director Kevin Harper says, “We’ve brought the strongest team together to combine brand new transformational experiences with one of our best lineups to date to really take this festival to new heights. The collective efforts of our MoNo family have come together to deliver a beautiful and unique environment, and this year will by far top them all.” Look forward to a completely reimagined landscape for Motion Notion 2017, as the new visionary behind the festival, Kevin Harper, plans to take Motion Notion to the next level for its 18th year.Aiming to further heighten the festival experience, the festival will welcome exciting expansions to the grounds, including the unveiling of a glorious beachside stage, upgraded glamping options, immersive art installations, extraordinary stage design plus more performers than ever before.
The expanded performance lineup features fire dancers, contortionists, hypnotists, magicians, aerialists, comedians, yogis, and workshop luminaries.
