Motion Notion 2012 Canada Festival with Crystal Method Ace Ventura John 00 Fleming


I started going to warehouse raves in the early 90s, and quickly found myself travelling around Western Canada to attend outdoor raves and electronic music festivals like Summer Love. My passion for electronic dance music has never  wavered, but until this year, I haven’t been out to many shows over the past 10 years. Despite knowing many people who have made the annual treck to Shambhala, it has never been successful at drawing me out of hibernation.

Enter Motion Notion. It was a Trancendance fan who first told me about Motion Notion (thanks Karl!), and as soon as I saw the lineup I NEEDED to go! I’ve been fortunate enough to see the likes of Union Jack, Chemical Brother and Skylab 2000 all play live. But the group that has escaped me for years is The Crystal Method. I’ve been a huge fan of their unique sound since the beginning, and I’ve always wanted to see them. If that wasn’t enough, I’ve become a huge fan of Ace Ventura over the past few years, and watching the photos and videos of his performances from overseas as they get posted to Facebook has left me wishing and waiting for him to play a show close enough to BC or Alberta that I can see him play. John 00 Fleming is icing on the cake.

Last week, after Caddyshack and I had already been buzzing about the potential for a road trip from Vancouver to Golden, BC to see the show, I found out that Motion Notion had asked to sponsor Trancendance for June and July! And so it begins. Over the next six weeks leading up to the Motion Notion festival, Trancendance will feature different artists scheduled to headline the show as well as some of the different artistic aspects of the event. Plus… we’ll be talking about a roadtrip or maybe even a caravan from Vancouver to the Beaverfoot Lodge in Golden.
