Monster Energy Center Of Gravity Music Festival Announces Sports Zones To The Line Up!
Monster Energy Center of Gravity has been the heart of the Okanagan’s festival scene since 2007 when it originally started out as a beach volleyball festival under the name Volleyfest. The festival has since grown into a three-day festival featuring some of the top names in electronic, hip hop and live music as well as continuing to showcase athletes from across North America competing in eight different sports for some pretty hefty prize pools.
We’re excited to host Canada’s Hottest Beach Festival for the first time in Wasaga Beach, ON. You know the music lineup but now let us show you why MECOG is so much more than just a music festival!
Always a crowd favorite, the Moto Zone is the ultimate location for adrenaline-pumping action during the festival. Featuring some of the top FMX riders around including Monster Energy team riders Marco Gonzalez and Kris Foster. You’ll get closer to all of the high-flying aerial flips and tricks than ever before. Brap brap!
What would a lakefront festival in Ontario be without wakeboarding?! The Water Zone is the spot where pro and semi-pro wakeboarders compete against each other to win the title and cash prizing for Best Trick or Best Line. Riders are towed across a massive pool set up on the beach using a 2.0 portable cable system. If you’re snappin’ some chats in the front row it might be a good idea to have a waterproof case for your phone. You’ve been warned.
This is where you can check out some of the best homegrown Ontario BMX and Skate talent tearing up the features in MECOG’s very own custom skate park. Even though this might be the best place to lean back, chillax and take ‘er easy, the riders won’t be holding anything back as they compete on MECOG’s own skate/BMX park.
Rec. Beach Volleyball and Dodgeball
Want to get in on the MECOG sports action but not a pro? No problem! We’ve teamed up with Off Limit Sports to bring you Rec. Beach Volleyball and Dodgeball tournaments on Sat. Aug. 20 and Sun.
