Rifflandia 3 was the charm.
Growing again the festival expanded to 3500 wristbanded Rifflandians. Men Without Hats reunited after 20 years for an epic performance at the Metro Theatre. Aesop Rock, JFK, The Gaslamp Killer, Gord Downie and Melissa Auf der Maur amongst many others (165 artists in total) performed on 11 festival stages.
Another batch of Rifflandabrau and another festival magazine was absorbed by fans. Wristband wearers were able to enter to win amazing things like pizza parties and helicopter rides through Rifflandia’s city wide treasure hunt called “Win!landia”.
