Buckle up, BC, because one of the biggest music festivals of the summer is yet to come, and it’ll be here before you know it. Victoria’s iconic Rifflandia Music Festival is one of the largest of its kind in BC, and it’s finally back after a four-year hiatus. And to celebrate, they’ve put together a killer artist lineup – with names like Iggy Pop, Diplo, Paris Hilton, Chet Faker, and Salt-N-Pepa headlining the festival – and that’s just for starters!

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.

What’s more, organizers have introduced a new feature this year called Splifflandia, a cannabis delivery service that offers legal-age festival-goers the chance to order cannabis products to the site in real time.
