Monster Energy Center of Gravity Festival: Wasaga Beach 2016

Ontario is getting another music festival! The Monster Energy Center of Gravity Festival [MECOG] has been running successfully on the shores of Okanagan Lake and Kelowna’s City Park for eight years and this year’s West Coast lineup is pretty spectacular.

What makes this festival different? This festival will be held on the beach, Wasaga Beach. It combines music with extreme sports, and with Monster Energy as a sponsor that shouldn’t be too big a surprise. And, MECOG combines a mix of high-energy electronic, urban, and other live music on multiple stages.

Center of Gravity offers multiple zones including The Moto Zone, The Water Zone and The Urban Zone.

Monster Energy Center of Gravity volleyballThe Moto Zone will showcase some of Canada’s best freestyle motocross riders performing crazy acrobatic stunts. Riders will be judged on style, level of difficulty, and best use of the track!

The Water Zone offers a mix of pro and semi-pro wakeboarders and wakeskaters from all over North America. They’ll be using a 2.0 portable cable system stretched over a massive pool built right on Wasaga Beach, spectators can take in the action from only feet away. Right on the beach people!

The Urban Zone will feature the best BMX Riders and Skateboarders from Ontario. The course offers rails, quarter pipes, boxes, and a 30’ half pipe, not for the faint of heart. This zone is  guaranteed to get your blood pumping. Expect to see some crazy stuff!

In addition to The Zones, there will be beach volleyball, beach dodgeball, and Coors Light is hosting the Game Zone which lets everyone get involved. With a 30 foot 2 person water slide, Volley Pong, Ladder Toss, Cornhole, Giant Jenga, Arcade Basketball, Ping Pong, and a custom Pentathlon Wall, it’s going to be amazing!

Monster Energy Center of GravityNow let’s talk about the music, because it’s going to be awesome. While the lineup for Wasaga Beach hasn’t been announced yet, it’s coming! What we do know is that the lineup for Okanagan Lake has been announced for 2016, and I think we can get a pretty good idea what we can expect from this and past years headliners.

This year’s West Coast lineup includes eight-time Grammy Award winner Skrillex, Dutch DJ-producer Afrojack, and hip-hop legend Ice Cube. Past acts include Diplo, Zeds Dead, Flo Rida, Yukon Blonde, Calvin Harris, Tegan and Sara, Robert Delong, Tiësto, Tommy Lee & DJ Aero w/ Sofi and the list goes on and on.

The Monster Energy Center of Gravity Festival hits the beach August 19, 20 and 21, 2016.

Ticket and lineup info coming soon! While you’re waiting, check out their website, it’s full of info with amazing photos and video clips.

UPDATE: Center of Gravity has announced the Wasaga Beach lineup… and it’s pretty HUGE. Have a look and click for more details.
