The Curve Project

Runs 6pm Friday to noon Sunday.

A chill-out dome and surrounding area made by Alexei, Nori, and friends. DJs from the other stages will play downtempo in this intentional space.



Open-decks will run 1pm-7pm Friday and Saturday.

This year The Fort will be hosting the open-decks extravaganza, so it's a chance to play on a huge soundsystem outdoors! Twelve one-hour slots are up for grabs. DJs that want to play must enter their DJ name into a drawbox at The Fort prior to 1pm Friday. The random draw will happen at 1pm on Friday at which time the lucky DJs will be added to the schedule. DJs that are already booked to play are not eligible to enter the draw. The stage is equiped with professional CDJs, turntables, and a mixer. Bring your own headphones and one hour of good music!


Interactive Dome

Make sounds and visuals in this surreal geodesic dome. Motion sensors and touch pads trigger the sounds and lighting real-time through two computers. Big thanks to John Bichel and friends.


Felix Deco Artist (Germany)

An installation of exquisitely detailed psychedelic backdrops by one of the world's most active minds. His deep understandings of the universe are brought to life through massive story-like paintings that glow in UV light! You may have seen some of his art at our New Year's Eve party a few years ago at the Golf Dome in Calgary.



All types of free daytime workshops ranging from yoga and meditation to dj tricks and fire spinning or hoola-hoop classes. Schedule will be posted at the Curve Project chill-out dome. Contact us if you want to host a workshop.


Costume Contest

Wacky, wild, weird, or wicked- lets see what you've got! We go to excess creating this spectacle, so why not add your flavour to it?! Show your individuality! Winners get free cds, Motion Notion merchandise, or passes to Motion Notion 2008.



Katalyst is the main organizer of Motion Notion. Years of contemplation broken only by the occasional silly moment of genius will culminate in a mammoth main stage of colour and texture unlike any before.



The notorious group of rowdy tech-heads that dwell within the walls of the Fort.


pK Events

Motion Notion is moving to a spectacular fresh location! The event's new home is a beautiful property just 40km South of last year's location, upstream on the same river. The Ranch is huge enough to accommodate the fast growth of the festival and boasts over 1000 acres of lush rolling pastureland, virgin forests, viewpoints, beaches, and three kilometres of pristine riverfront along our beloved Pembina River. We are excited about the amazing possibilities this new site brings for the festival!
