One of the most highly-anticipated music festivals in Victoria has announced its 2022 lineup, and music lovers everywhere are counting down until they can get their tickets!

After taking a pause for the 2019 season, Rifflandia had announced its intent to return in 2020 better than ever. 

However, due to COVID-19, the music festival’s hiatus continued, pausing shows for both 2020 and 2021. 

Earlier this year, Rifflandia announced the festival would return this year, and now eager fans have been treated to the announcement of their incredible lineup. 

This September, Lorde and Charli XCX will headline the 2022 show, kicking off its return with a bang. 

Other performers include Lauv, Cypress Hill, Black Pumas, Shaquille O’Neal as DJ Diesel, Ben Harper and more!

You can see the list here, with over 50 more to be announced!

Rifflandia 2022 will feature Main and RiffTop stages at Royal Athletic Park as well as seven stages in the Arts and Innovation District at the north end of the downtown core including Phillips Backyard called ‘Electric Avenue’. 

Royal Athletic Park will be an all ages event, while Electric Avenue will be 19+.

Attendees will have the option of buying a 3 day park pass for all 3 days at Royal Athletic Park, a 3-day night pass for Electric Avenue or a VIP Pass.
