The gates open at 11am on Friday July 22 2016 for regular attendees. Early entry starts at 11am Thursday July 21 for $40 cash per person along with a pre-purchased ticket, or $380 cash if you do not have a pre-purchased ticket. Every attendee must read and sign the waiver before entering the festival. After the festival, please vacate the site by 12-noon on Monday, July 25.  Do not drive if you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or very sleep deprived. Security and police will be checking.  Event runs rain or shine. Front-gate operates 24hrs per day. Front-gate staff cannot hold tickets for people, grant temporary access, make additions or changes to the guest list, or bargain with the price. Wristbands supplied at gate must be worn at all times. Children aged 12 and under are free but must be accompanied by a responsible parent or legal guardian who by purchasing a ticket, agrees to take on full responsibility for the child's welfare.  Only purchase tickets from authorized ticket outlets or trustworthy individuals. Fake or stolen tickets will not be accepted. Ticket numbers, security features and barcodes will be checked/scanned on entry to ensure tickets are valid. No refunds for any tickets.  A vehicle fee will be charged to each vehicle each time it enters the festival.  Motion Notion reserves the right to refuse entry, remove people from the property, or change the rules at any time with no refund or compensation. Each person entering the festival must voluntarily consent to a search of their person, vehicle, or belongings by security or staff as a condition of entry.



Guest-list inclusion must be confirmed by a Manager (James Katalyst, Suwannee, or Kevin Harper) in writing or email before July 1. This is the big thorn in our side and we hope you will be nice and honest. It is best to bring printed email conversations as proof of guest-list inclusion in case of any problems at the gate.  No other person or group has the authority to add names to the guest-list other than one of these three people. Picture ID is required on entry to confirm each guest's or performer's identity.  We prefer each performer and his/her guest arrive in the same vehicle or at the same time. If a performer's guest will arrive in a separate vehicle or separate time from the performer one of the managers needs to be given that guest's full name via email prior to July 1.  No changes can be made after July 1 or at the gate. Anyone not on the guest-list will need to pay the full entry fee or present a valid ticket to be granted entry.  People who were, "supposed to be on the guest-list" but were forced to pay in error should ask for a receipt and will be given a refund after the event if they mail the receipt and explanation to the Motion Notion office at 305 4625 Varsity Drive NW, Calgary, AB, T3A 0Z9 within 30 days.



There are inherent risks associated with attending this event such as extreme weather, wild animals, an unsupervised river and pond with no lifegaurd on duty, large dead-standing trees, tripping hazards, high-voltage electrical equipment, slippery ground, dark areas, loud music, flashing lights, overhead decor, fires, and sharp objects. Ticketholder assume all risks occurring before, during or after event, including injury or death by any cause. No lifeguard on duty. Waiver must be read and signed on entry. Ticketholder releases organizer and landowner, and their respective affiliates and representatives from any related claims. Ticketholder consents to our use of their image, likeness, actions and statements in connection with any live or recorded audio or photograph or other transmission or publication of event with no compensation.



It costs a lot of money and time to make a good festival and we work hard to make it safe and fun for everyone. Be fair with us. Buy a ticket, it's so much easier than getting into trouble.  If you really want to sneak-in without paying or try to sneak-in we WILL find you, press charges and you will be kicked out. Every person caught will be criminally charged by the RCMP with 'failure to pay' (same as theft). This will result in a criminal record. You will also be banned from the event for 10 years. We realize the gaps in security from years past and this will not happen again. We have many security checks in place before and during the event to ensure freeloaders will be caught.  Please don't think you can get in free just because you live nearby or know somebody at the venue. We are serious about this and have ZERO tolerance. We know all the games and excuses after 17 years doing this. We rent the venue and have exclusive use of it for the festival.
