InPrint: Center of Gravity weekend nears sell out

Disclaimer: Please note that this article was submitted before Center of Gravity 3-day Music and Sports passes sold out. Sports passes are still available and word on the street is that your BFF’s at Awesome Okanagan might still be able to  get you into Center of Gravity so stay tuned!

Winch JamWe all know how Kelowna is a very last minute city when it comes to buying tickets. Normally this is just fine because everyone does the same and there are plenty of tickets left at the doors when it comes to the day of the event. For Center of Gravity however, I will advise you to not put it off until the last minute because if you do, tickets will be gone.

For the first time, Center of Gravity is nearing a sell out just weeks before the event weekend. Taking place in City Park and Hot Sands Beach in Downtown Kelowna from July 29th – 31st, it’s no wonder why tickets are becoming harder and harder to track down for Canada’s hottest beach festival.

The last batch of tickets have been released and can only be purchased on A three-day sport and music pass is $148 and gets you in on all the action for all three days so this is definitely your best choice. Daily concert passes are also available starting at $58 per day.

Beach VolleyballThe lineup was announced a couple of months ago and ticket holders are exhilarated to finally get to see the likes of Busta Rhymes, Calvin Harris, Chromeo and many, many more.

But apart from all the great music that is going to be pumping around City Park all weekend, lets not forget all the awesome sports action that makes up the other half of Center of Gravity. The weekend will see over 150 pro athletes competing in five different sports around the site including the Dirt Zone, Water Zone, Beach Volleyball, Hoop Zone and the all new Urban Zone featuring skateboard, BMX and breakdance demonstrations.
