Inspired by Sir Isaac himself and with an appetite for adrenaline, the inaugural Newton’s Playground was staged in 2008 melding a bunch of the most competitive extreme sportsmen & women together atop the one & only Mount Panorama. Featuring luge, downhill skate, MTB, BMX, skate, parkour, wing suits & swooping. the first ever Newton’s event also saw Aussie rockers Grinspoon headlining a 2-day music bill topping off the perfect rush for thousands of festival goers & competitors alike.
Subsequent years saw Newton’s evolve with a name change (Newton’s Nation) new extreme sport disciplines, big name acts and Australia’s first ever International Gravity Sports Association (IGSA) World Cup (downhill skate and luge). Mojo remained involved until 2010 after which time the various sporting disciplines went their own way.
