Motion Notion, or "Mo-No" not only offers four days of raving amidst the glorious wilderness of Golden, British Columbia, but also aims to replenish the spirit by attuning attendees to the natural frequency of the universe.
16 years of successful events proves their claim and that they're getting somewhere. Electronic music, in its many guises, leads the programming and is complemented by visual arts, live crafts, free-roaming performers and workshops for the mind, body and soul.
Motion Notion, in each of the year it is held, overflows with fresh creative energy which stems from its age-inclusive, nurturing, community-minded attitude to partying and it's the place and time to live out your wildest, hedonistic fantasies alongside a couple thousand kindred spirits, attendees and travelers. This welcoming attitude extends to the music program, which runs 24 hours and fills seven stages with danceable options from dub to drum-and-bass, funk, rock, electro, techno and everything in between.
The three main arenas, all supplied with exhilarating visuals to further heighten the ecstatic vibes, are supplemented by four satellite arenas where Canada's top promoters showcase their choice selections. The "Temple", which depicts the melding of technology, art, nature and spirituality, is the main stage and is programmed to lure dancers in with dub and funk in the daytime before blasting them with the harder, psychedelic sounds come nightfall.
The "Cabana" stays bass-oriented and vibrates with drum-and-bass, breaks, dubstep, glitch-hop, and house throughout the duration of the festival. Spectrum is focused on the electronic tip as well, but in a lush, beach setting.
In setting up its own art installations, Motion Notion encourages independent artists and performers to bring their tools and create onsite which means Mo-No is packed full of eye catching works and performances by painters, fire dancers, aerialists and even glass-blowers. All over the festival site there are talented souls ready to bewitch you in between dancing at the stages.
