Rifflandia is the most epic, all encompassing, city conquering party Atomique Productions throws for Victoria, BC each year. Navigating your way through the awesome madness can be tricky, but we’ve got you covered. Here are the top 5 things you should know about Rifflandia 2016.

#5: You’re in Charge
Create your very own festival schedule to maximise your concert experience. Follow this link HERE to see the schedule calendar, choose your shows and make your own plan.

#4: There’s a Magic Wristband
Exchange your ticket for a wristband to get pretty crazy deals around town all weekend long. Like a mug of Habit coffee for $1, A Meat and Bread sandwich for $10, 25% off at Silk Road Tea, 20% off at Victory Barber & Brand to name a few.

#3: Show Up Early
Seriously. These venues pack out and pack out quick. We’re islanders and we dig the laid back, show up casually-late vibe here, but if there’s a show you’ve just gotta see, then you just gotta fight the island urge and get there early. Then, take photos of yourself at the show and post em for all your late friends, in a nice way though, because we’re still Canadians.

#2: There’s an App for That
Download the Rifflandia app to your phone, it’ll have everything you need to make your weekend a stellar one and maximise your concert going ventures. Food, pro-tips, schedule, info, venue location – you name it, it’s there.

#1: You’re Going to Have the Time of Your Life
The Rifflandia folks have put together an incredibly mind-blowing weekend for us. Local acts we love, new music to dive into and crazy deals to experience some of the best local culture our island has to offer. They thought of everything and it’s all for us. Thanks, Rifflandia.
