Even though summer may be coming to a close, the fun certainly finds no end in Victoria, BC. If you have some vacation time left, are in need of a getaway and/or are simply a fan of great music then you must mark off September 11-14, 2014 for the Rifflandia Music Festival.
This four-day music spectacular is held in Victoria, BC every September but it seems as though it just gets better and better as the years go by. It is truly a musical buffet as talented artists in all genres join together to bring one of the most popular events around Vancouver Island. In fact, over 100 acclaimed Canadian and International artists will perform on ten stages. It is one of Western Canada’s premier music events and a great reason to visit our area. All of the stages are within walking distance of downtown Victoria, a historic and beautiful area that offers a host of other activities, places to shop and restaurants to try in between all of the performances.
Date: Septemer 11-14, 2014
Venue: Royal Athletic Park
Tickets: There are several levels of passes available and you can purchase tickets at Lyle’s Place, Ditch Records and Royal McPherson Box Office.
Another great reason to attend this event besides the amazing music you will hear is that the festival supports War Child Canada. Each ticket sold means $2 will be donated to help protect children in war zones. If you sign up to donate monthly, you will be given a weekend pass to the War Child Lounge where you will be treated to intimate, unplugged sets from some of the favorite artists at this year’s festival. What started with a 10×10 tent and 65 artists in 2008 has become an event you won’t want to miss.
Just a short drive away is The Prancing Horse Retreat – a breathtaking bed and breakfast on Malahat Mountain and the perfect place to stay while you attend the festival. Take a step up from the standard hotel and make this a weekend to remember! Contact us to make sure you reserve your room as this festival brings in crowds from all over!
