FESTIVAL TO RETURN IN 2020

Building Rifflandia has been an incredible journey filled with amazing musical memories and accomplishments. But as our city continues to change before our eyes, our region’s unique festival landscape is evolving and this requires our careful attention to ensure that Rifflandia is able to thrive for years to come, alongside our artists, audience and partners.
