Since 2008, Rifflandia has become a city-wide music fest in our province’s capital with an impressive concert lineup, theme days like Nautical Friday, Save The Day Saturday and R&R Sunday, and a collection of three creative festivals (Thinklandia / Artlandia / Makelandia) all rolled into one. There’s also a charity component with $2 from every Rifflandia ticket sold going to War Child making it a very worthy (and fun) reason to hop a ferry to Victoria for the weekend.
