Last year, Rifflandia Festival, the sprawling 15 venue, 150+ artist festival in the heart of downtown Victoria, celebrated it’s 10th birthday, and boy it was a blast! Between enjoying some blistering rock music in the sun at Royal Athletic Park, soaking in the multiple venues of downtown’s Electric Avenue, and of course sampling all the delicious Phillips Beer products, makes it one of the best on the west coast.
And now, they’re back with a lineup that has a little something for everyone! We’ve got Daniel Caesar, who we saw at Snowbombing this year and blew us away! Not to mention Dubstep legends Adventure Club, French bass queen Clozee, and West Coast favourite Neon Steve. Plus, a huge collection of local heavyweights. . . oh, of course the iconic turntabilist Mix Master Mike!
“After such a major and successful milestone 10 Year Anniversary last September, we can’t wait to deliver this next edition of the festival.” – Nick Blasko, Festival Director
The daily lineups for Royal Athletic Park, the festival’s flagship venue, recently announced. This is the venue for music fans of all ages to experience performances from some of the biggest names in the lineup. The age limit for free entry to Royal Athletic Park increased to 12 and younger, allowing more families to enjoy Rifflandia Festival together at an affordable price. All families must register kids using the form found on the “Children” section of the website.
An impressive slate of Night Stage Artists also released today, with Electric Avenue returning as the main attraction, featuring multiple stages along Discovery Street. Multiple other night venues, dozens more artists, and the final festival schedule will release early in the summer.
