KELOWNA - This weekend saw some of the biggest names in electro-dance music fed crowd goers just what they wanted: a steady rise and fall of body moving beats.

Around 6 p.m., the first headliners hit the stage at City Park for the Centre of Gravity music festival. 

A founding member of metal band Motley Crue, Tommy Lee, was joined by DJ Aero. The pair spun an hour-long mix.

Next up was Swedish electro house duo Dada Life, considered in the top 100 most popular contemporary DJ's. Their show in Kelowna is their only stop in Western Canada on a tour that has them headlining summer festivals around the world.

But not until 8:30 p.m. did the predominantly 25 and under crowd pack in around the main stage for the highlight of the night.

Described as the new face of electronic-dance music and voted "America's Best DJ" by DJ Times Magazine, artist Kaskade dazzled the crowd. His serene sound was made more subtle with a performance from songstress and electro-pop artist Lights.

The festival continued Saturday and wraps up on Sunday.
