Canada’s Hottest Beach Festival Center of Gravity 2013

Canada’s Hottest Beach Festival Center of Gravity 2013

Instead of spending the August long weekend at the park hiding your liquor or at a family barbeque or god forbid, indoors watching a Judge Judy marathon (whatever you guys, it was a one time thing) head up to Kelowna for Center of Gravity 2013.

Known as “Canada’s Hottest Beach Festival,” the COG is running from August 2 – 4 and features three days of extreme sports and some of the biggest acts in electronic music – including Kaskade, Tiesto and Toronto’s very own Lights.

Center of Gravity comes equipped with three stages, over 150 athletes competing in seven categories of sports (beach volleyball, FMX, basketball, wakeboarding, BMX, skateboarding, and freestyle mountain biking), food vendors, and sponsor exhibits. There’s also a bikini contest because apparently those things still exist and are still popular.

Anyway, tickets are now on sale and can be purchased online here. The festival is open to all ages and will be running rain or shine. So if you’re into house music, extreme shit, sandy beaches, and a horde of underage children – this is the place to be! View the complete 2013 lineup below and for more information on the three-day event be sure to visit the official website for Center of Gravity.
