On Thursday September 12th, Rifflandia Music Festival is set to open for another amazing year right here in beautiful Victoria B.C. With an incredible line up, including the talents of Courtney Love, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zero’s, Big Boi, Death from Above 1979, James Murphy and Pat Mahoney DJ Sets (DFA/LCD Soundsystem) to name a few; year six (with the first Rifflandia beginning in 2008) is set to be a windfall success. However, before the Festival begins, as a prelude and ode to the incredible talent of local artists, Atomique Productions in partnership with InterArts holds “Artlandia”, a showcase of interactive and visual art created and showcased in conjuncture with Rifflandia. On August 23rd 2013, Atomique Productions opened their new office-headquarters to an eager crowd, marking the official opening of Artlandia and the 2013 Rifflandia Festival season. Artlandia runs from August 23rd – September 22nd, 2013.
