The gates open at 9am on Friday August 24 2018 for regular attendees. Early entry starts at 9am Thursday August 23 for $40 cash at the gate or proof of pre-purchase, or $400 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, August 27.  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 an Event Manager in writing or email before August 15. 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. 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 August 15.  No changes can be made after August 15 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.  If you were supposed to be on the guestlist but were forced to pay in error, please ask for a receipt from the gate and submit a refund request after the event (with receipt attached) to

It costs a lot of money and time to make this festival what it is and we work hard to make it safe and fun for everyone. Be fair with us. Do the right thing and buy a ticket - it's so much easier than getting into trouble. Any trespassers 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 have many security checks in place before and during the event to ensure trespassers will be caught.  We have a ZERO tolerance for this type of behavior, so don't ruin yours and your friends' experience (and lives) by trying to skirt the system.
