The Opportunity

Rifflandia Festival was established in 2008 with the goal of creating a unique music and arts festival, set amongst the beautiful and historic downtown of Victoria, British Columbia. The ninth Rifflandia Festival will take place September 15-18, 2016 and feature 200+ performances across multiple stages and venues over 3 days and 4 nights, all within walking distance of one another. Over the past eight years, Rifflandia Festival has seen exponential growth, becoming a world-class destination and recognized as a festival of choice to attend in Canada and the Pacific Northwest. In 2015 Rifflandia Festival and BreakOut West Festival (Western Canadian Music Awards) ran concurrently by interweaving the programming together and with performances on 20 stages. Rifflandia 2016 will continue to challenge traditional boundaries to be a unique festival and strive to be Canada’s premiere international music and art festival destination.
