Presented by Wet Ape Productions and Live Nation, Center of Gravity combines the world’s top musical acts with over 400 athletes competing in six adrenaline pumping sports including beach volleyball, beach dodgeball, wakeboarding, freestyle motocross, skateboarding and BMX.
Now in its ninth consecutive year in Kelowna, BC – MECOG is ready to bring its combination of action sports, professional beach volleyball, world class musical talents, and beach culture to Wasaga Beach! Artist announcements to follow, with some of the biggest names in EDM, hip-hop and live music.
“Wasaga Beach is a perfect fit for MECOG. The festival is meant to be an escape from the city to a beach town, for a weekend packed with high energy sports, day cabanas, lakeside house music, sunset headliner performances, and shared memories with likeminded people. It’s hard to find a better location than Wasaga Beach to create the MECOG experience.” – Festival Founder, Scott Emslie
