Kelowna, BC (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Wet Ape Productions announces that Monster Energy Center of Gravity will be returning to
Kelowna’s City Park July 24 – 26, 2015. The eighth year of Kelowna’s sports
and music festival will see a number of changes, predominantly the addition of a new
partnership with Canada’s leading festival producers Union Events.
With offices in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Toronto, Union Events have an extensive
background in concert and festival production including properties such as Sonic Boom
(Edmonton), X-Fest (Calgary), Chasing Summer (Calgary), Riot Fest (Toronto) and
numerous others. Union Events is the right fit in the continued growth of Canada’s hottest
beach festival. Managing Partner Harvey Cohen is looking forward to the new partnership
and the future development of the festival, "Union Events is incredibly excited to be working
with Wet Ape to build on the previous successes of this great festival and to continue to
bring amazing music and sports to the City of Kelowna".
Although Wet Ape’s Keloha Music & Arts Festival will not be returning in 2015 on its own
weekend, components of the indie/alternative rock and arts festival will be integrated into
MECOG providing audiences with an amazing festival experience that brings the top artists
from all genres to Kelowna. Wet Ape and Union Events are excited for the opportunity to
draw in broader audiences and to continue to expand on the festival’s ever-growing
Festival Director, Scott Emslie, is thrilled about the upcoming year; “We’ve put some key
pieces in place that will be the foundation for one of the greatest festival experiences in
Western Canada. Partnering up with a live entertainment powerhouse like Union Events is
very exciting for us and there is a very bright future for the festival.”
Ticketing and lineup info will be released in early 2015.
