Published Oct 04, 2011A little while back, Victoria hosted the fourth annual Rifflandia festival, showcasing a ton of local, national and international acts across clubs and stages citywide. While Vancouver Island residents no doubt got an eyeful from September 22 to 25, many of us missed out on what the music fest had to offer this year. Thankfully, organizers have posted a handful of video clips highlighting some of the finer moments of this year's Rifflandia.
The fest'sYouTube channel is currently chock full of performances from heavy hitters like Broken Social Scene, Braids, City and Colour, the Cave Singers and more. From glorious outdoor performances at the Royal Athletic Park to more intimate gigs at halls, theatres and boutiques, Rifflandia appeared to be a blast. If you didn't make it this year, maybe consider booking your 2012 vacation in Victoria.
Here are just some of the video highlights:
