Buckle up, BC, because it’s going to be a great summer for live music. And to cap it all off, there’s Victoria’s iconic Rifflandia Music Festival, one of the largest of its kind in BC. What’s more, the organizers have officially dropped the artist lineup for summer 2023, and tickets will soon be on sale. Time to start planning your end-of-summer adventures!

For a little context, Rifflandia will be taking place over the course of two weeks in September. As for the locations, shows will be split between Electric Avenue from September 7th to 9th and the Royal Athletic Park from September 15th to 17th.

Headlining this year’s festival are big names like Iggy Pop, Salt-N-Pepa, Diplo, Paris Hilton, Herbie Hancock, Stephen Marley, Chet Faker, and more.
