Sound On Sound Fest CANCELED

Posted by on Oct 6, 2017 in festivals, news

Much respect for canceling before putting on half a show. 100% refunds and complete transparency.

OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM SOUND ON SOUND FEST

We are extremely saddened to announce today that Sound On Sound Fest 2017 is being canceled. This is one of the hardest decisions we have ever had to make. Due to several recent roadblocks outside of our control and in an effort to do right by our fans, the decision to cancel the event was our only real option.

All ticket holders will be 100% refunded for the costs of their tickets. That refund process has already been initiated through our ticketing partner, Eventbrite, for all attendees who purchased ticket(s) through their site. There is no action necessary on your end and you can expect to see the refund on your credit/debit card statement within the next 5-7 business days. If you bought a physical ticket, please email info@soundonsoundfest.com to process your refund.

We are currently in the process of rescheduling the majority of the artists who were set to play Sound On Sound Fest at other venues in the area, and will be announcing the shows and individual show tickets available for purchase very shortly.  There are many acts who were touring through November 10-12 who are still performing as well as a number of artists who will be flying back in for new dates this year.  For all these rescheduled shows, fans who purchased Sound On Sound tickets will get the first chance to purchase single tickets to any makeup shows this fall.  Fans will be emailed a link with details in advance of the public onsale with a limited time to purchase before tickets open to the general public. We will announce the schedule for shows on Monday, October 16. The private presale exclusively for all Sound On Sound Fest ticket holders will start on Monday, October 16and run until Thursday, October 19 at 8 a.m., when the public onsale begins.

We truly love our fans. We appreciate you sticking with us while we work hard to make this right. Be on the lookout for new show announcements from Sound On Sound Fest artists and ticket links for these replacement shows.

Motion Notion Festival Unveils Dynamic, Full-length 2016 After Movie

Motion Notion Festival – August 24th – 28th, 2017 – For one weekend each year, the spellbinding forest surrounding the historic Beaverfoot Lodge near Golden BC, Canada transforms in celebration of Motion Notion Festival, an intimate music, camping, and arts experience set in the pristine wilderness of North America. Entering its 18th year, Motion Notion Festival is globally-renowned for its vibrant festival history: consistently booking a refreshing mix of seasoned talent and the elite of the underground in electronic music, constructing prismatic stage design and offering a wealth of activities and riverside camping against the majestic Rocky Mountains.

In anticipation of this year’s event, the creators of Motion Notion are thrilled to release the incredible Motion Notion 2016 Full-Length Aftermovie. Created by Rebel Cause Films, the awe-inspiring 10-minute video reveals the power of freedom attendees unharness when entering the grounds, igniting them to live life through motion. The video highlights unforgettable performances from 2016 musical acts including Au5, Bear Grillz, Far Too Loud, Govinda, Inf1n1te, Phutureprimitive, Sander Kleinenberg, and Legendary UK drum and bass DJ TC.

Scenes of sprawling landscapes are interwoven with shots of the extraordinary stage design and pulsating light shows alongside festival attendees pursuing their own notion of motion through movement, flow arts and yoga.

“Motion Notion Festival was beautiful on so many levels. It’s a blessing to have been a part of it. My faith in humanity has been restored. It’s the closest thing to a utopian society that I’ve experienced, and I can’t wait to return again next year.” – AU5

With a reputation for putting together an unrivaled lineup of electronic acts, previous installments of Motion Notion Festival have welcomed Noisia, Crystal Method, Infected Mushroom, Justin Jay, Mr. Bill, Freq Nasty, Krafty Kuts, Aphrodite, Stanton Warriors, Liquid Stranger, Dirtyphonics, Sphongle, Stickybuds and The Funk Hunters plus many others to the woods of Canada to play atop one of three festival stages and 3 independent stages. Fully-equipped crystal clear PK Sound Systems adorn many of the stages and installations, creating an immersive and powerful experience for all festival attendees. As the festival continues to evolve, 2017 will invite over 100 acts to the decks — 2017 lineup announcement coming April 2017!

Serving as a catalyst for discovery, Motion Notion empowers individuals to fully embody their highest and truest self, offering an engaging roster of activities for exploration throughout the four-day festival. Thumping beats, picturesque scenery, riverside camping (and swimming!) serve as main attractions, drawing in attendees to unearth a trove of wellness experiences. Past workshops have included Alchemical Acupressure, Quantum Physics, Couples Massage, Hula Hooping (beginner and advanced courses), Dream Catcher Creation, Surya Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Incense-Making and Mother Earth Guided Meditation (Gaia Meditation). Fire-dancers, magicians, hypnotists, belly-dancers, flaggers, live-painters, aerialists, and contortionists from far and wide converge on the festival to dazzle revelers.

Motion Notion Festival returns to Canada this summer, bringing along fresh elements, honoring sacred geometry and the natural landscape of the festival grounds. 2017 will bring new workshops and experiences, and a robust arts program designed to fulfill the body, spirit and mind.
