Canada continues to make noise from all of their unique events and breath taking locations that are too hard to believe are backdrop settings for life changing music festivals. And now Canada’s 18th annual Motion Notion Festival is calling out for all Western Canadian electronic music djs and producers, bass music advocates, and funk warriors that would like to be part of this years mega lineup!
Teamed up with Vancouver’s event powerhouse Do604, Motion Notion has launched one of the largest DJ contests of the year – PLAY Motion Notion 2017 . Accepting submissions from now until April 29th, rising talent from Alberta and British Columbia are invited to submit their 15-minute mix via Mixcloud for consideration.
At stake? The ultimate prize of playing a prestigious set on one of Motion Notion’s main stages later this summer, August 24th – 28th in the mountains of Golden, BC at the historic Beaverfoot Lodge. In addition to securing a coveted set at Motion Notion 2017, the winners will receive 2 guest passes and a complimentary glamping package!
All contestants will gain exposure on an international level throughout the duration of the contest as the judging occurs in two key phases, allowing fans to select the first round of winners followed by a panel of industry heavyweights judging the Top 5 mixes to decide who comes out on top. Mixes will be displayed on the contest landing page until the submission window closes.
Judging this year’s contest include Westwood Recordings – a record label founded by Nick Middleton of The Funk Hunters / The Outlier, along with Danio Management who boasts unstoppable names like Stickybuds, K+Lab, Slynk and JPod. Also joining the panel is popular Canadian blog Betty and Kora, best known for their stories, photos + videos highlighting festival culture, Creative BC, a non-profit association serving the music and creative industries within the province, Everfest, THUMP Canada and VICE Canada, the global source for all things news, culture, music and everything that matters in the world.
