    Dear all,

    What is the meaning of "on" here:

    {So itís all a bit hectic today but tomorrow itís gonna be windy, itís gonna be on, itís gonna be epic.}

    It a trial day where competitors try to be qualified for taking part in the main event tomorrow.

    I don't know if it can mean "interesting" or something like that.

    Thanks a lot.

    I think that in this example "on" means something like "intense" and "relentless"Ö a lot happening. Similar to "full-on".
