Vancity Buzz went to Rifflandia Festival on September 17 to 20 in beautiful Victoria – here’s a capsule review and photos from the weekend.

Rifflandia was as thoroughly varied in genre as it was in venues. What made this festival really stand out was that it wasn’t simply a lineup of artists, but also a cultural event, making it a discernible and poignant symbol of Victoria’s overall sense of community.

Performances from Joey Badass to Modest Mouse made it clear to everyone that Rifflandia represented something unique: audiences embraced a good atmosphere and happily celebrated whichever act took to the stage. The crowd was unrelentingly enthusiastic. This energy undoubtedly permeated the event, and fuelled the artists alike. The result­ was unforgettable performances, instilled sense of community, and a memorable weekend.
