For three days each September Victoria comes alive with the sound of music…no Julie Andrews isn’t running down the hill but you may be running to hear great acts like Flaming Lips, Mother Mother, Cake or Everlast. Rifflandia Festival Year 5 runs from this Thursday night, September 13th to Sunday September 16th, in venues across Victoria. With eight night stages over three nights and Royal Athletic Park featuring two day time stages on Friday, Saturday and Sunday there’s sure to be something to suit every musical whim you might feel.
Dance into the night with DJ Shadow or Morgan Page at Market Square, rock out to F*cked Up, The Antlers, or Humans at Sugar or Alix Gooden Hall. Then chill out on a sunny afternoon to Dan Mangan, Sloan or Hey Ocean! at Royal Athletic Park.
No matter what your budget, there’s a way to take in some of the great music Rifflandia 2012 has to offer. Wristbands start at just $20 for access to the acoustic War Child Lounge at The Atrium (space permitting, admission at the door will be based on a min suggested donation of $10), to $80 for single day passes and $295 for the VIP wristband. Wristband holders have access to Wristband Connect, discounts and special offers from the Rifflandia sponsors like American Apparel, Helijet, Silk Road Tea or Cook Street Liquor Store.
The forecast is for sun and fun this weekend in Victoria as Rifflandia takes over, don’t miss out. Plan your trip now!
