Centre of Gravity Festival Kelowna 2011, Win Passes

Comments 56 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Centre of Gravity, Kelowna’s ultimate summer beach festival and concert series, returns to the shores of Lake Okanagan July 29th to July 31st.

The festival has several key components of music and sport. 150 athletes will compete in five sports: pro beach volleyball, freestyle mountain biking, FMX, wakeboarding, and basketball. As for concerts in City Park, there’s Dragonette, Sweet Thing, Dirty Radio, and many more artists with headliners Busta Rhymes, Calvin Harris, and Chromeo on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

There’s also the Dirt Zone (featuring FMX freestyle mountain bike shows), the Water Zone (with wakeboarding), Hot Sands Beach (for the beach volleyball tournaments), Hoop Zone (for 4 on 4 basketball), and the Urban Zone (for BMX, skateboarding and street DJs).

Download the Centre of Gravity mobile app to keep on top of schedules and events for each day. 3-day passes and tickets for Friday are sold out but there are still tickets available for Saturday and Sunday. I also have a VIP prize pack available to give away to one lucky reader including:

  • Two 3-Day VIP Premium Passes
  • Two backstage passes during Sweet Thing’s set (Saturday at 6:25pm)
  • Two tickets to the After Party at Sapphire (Saturday night)
  • There are two ways you can enter to win my VIP prize pack for Centre of Gravity:

  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
  • I entered to win 3-day VIP passes to #CentreofGravity @COG_Kelowna from @Miss604 http://bit.ly/COG604

    Since the festival is next weekend I will quickly draw a winner at 10:00am Monday, July 25, 2011. While the festival is for all-ages, you must be at least 19 years of age to enter and win this contest (for the after party). Please enjoy the festival and parties responsibly and have a great time in the Okanagan sunshine!

      My favourite thing about kelowna is that I was married there. Then left!

      Kelowna in summer is almost defined by COG. I first saw sweet thing in concert with dragonette almost three years ago at the habitat in Kelowna and fell in love. I’ve recently moved to Williams Lake and miss Kelowna so much I could cry. If I win thse tickets I promise I will make a video professing my undying gratitude.


    37. trevorSunday, July 24th, 2011 — 6:28pm PDT

      We just booked to come to Kelowna for the long weekend and had not realized before that Centre of Gravity was happening. Now we are disappointed that we had not gotten tickets before. We would love to be able to go and see Calvin Harris and all the activities.
