Geddes: Heavy hitting headliners at Centre of Gravity

When you think back to 2010’s Center of Gravity—Kelowna’s hottest summer beach party—you might wonder how they could top headliners like Naughty by Nature and Steve Aoki, but event organizer Wet Ape is at it again and this year they are bringing Kelowna an even bigger lineup.

This year’s Center of Gravity headliners will feature Busta Rhymes, Calvin Harris and Chromeo which tops off the already stacked lineup including DJ Pauly D, Mat the Alien, Classified, Smalltown DJs, Zeds Dead, and Dragonette, to name a few.

The full line up and performance schedule can be found at www.centerofgravity.ca.

Center of Gravity continues to grow each year and the Wet Ape team promises attendees that 2011 is going to be their most massive year yet.

The Substenance Bass Stage is a new addition to the weekend this year, and will accommodate the heavy hitting lineup, along with the Flipside Beach Stage and the Sun FM Main Stage.

Center of Gravity takes place in Kelowna’s City Park and its sandy beaches from July 29 to 31, but attendees can expect much more from the festival than just great music.

The jam-packed weekend will also include pro beach volleyball, freestyle mountain biking, FMX, wakeboarding, basketball, bikini contests, beer gardens, after parties, and much more.

Scott Emslie founded Wet Ape in 2007. With a background as a professional volleyball player, Emslie decided to produce a large beach volleyball event called VolleyFest in the summer of 2007, which was a huge success. It has since developed into Center of Gravity which draws an average of 25,000 to 30,000 attendees each year.

Wet Ape has expanded their programming past the hot summer months and they are also now producing large-scale arena shows with some of the biggest names in electronic dance music including Deadmau5, Calvin Harris and Tiesto.

Tickets for Center of Gravity are on sale at www.centerofgravity.ca for $98, which gets you in on all the weekend action.
