Overview: One of the more unique EDM festivals in Canada as COG Kelowna combines extreme sports with a large dose of electronic dance music. With a mix of DJs and live acts like Chromeo booked, this year's COG celebration promises to be one of the most diverse yet.
Why you should go
COG Kelowna offers an eclectic lineup that brings together a combination of electronic dance music acts like Calvin Harris, Adventure Club, Morgan Page, along with live acts like Chromeo, Tegan and Sara, Matt and Kim, and more. Combine that with a selection of extreme sport competitions that include skateboarding, dirt bike racing, wakeboarding, and more - Center of Gravity is an all-in-one package of music and sports.
Acts to watch (If you want to hear new music)
Chromeo: Fresh from just releasing their fourth studio album titled "White Women", this Montreal duo are ready to take the road to showcase it for the summer festival season. "Jealous (I Ain't With It)" has turned into a certified hit, which will no doubt be played at COG Kelowna.
Savoy: This Brooklyn based trio is more than ready for their Canadian summer tour. Armed with their Predator LP released earlier this year, brand new secret collaborations and a new EP on the way - Savoy will have plenty of new music to unleash this festival season. If you're looking for heavy bass music and wanting to hear fresh tunes, then place your bets on Savoy on bringing the heat.
Project 46: Ryan and Thomas have a new album on the way that they have busily been testing on the road for the past several months. Both of these Canadian talents are known for their more melodic tracks, and have managed to break into the wider mainstream audience thanks in part to their Kaskade collaboration "Last Chance". They are playing as many as 6 unreleased tracks in their live gigs, so it will be a certainty that watching a Project 46 show this summer will mean that you'll be listening to brand new music. (Note: Project 46 will be playing the COG Afterparty)
The Glitch Mob: Earlier this year The Glitch Mob, a trio composed of Justin Boreta, Ed Ma, and Joshua Mayer released their second album "Love Death Immortality". It was an LP filled with banging tracks filled with energy ready for the festival season. The Glitch Mob prefer sticking to their own tracks, so when you see them live, expect a Glitch Mob DJ showcase.
