Rifflandia says across the two weekends there are still artists yet to be announced.

Tickets will go on sale on May 18 at 10 a.m.

This is Rifflandia’s second year back after taking a four year break. The 2019 festival was cancelled due to economic challenges and difficulty booking talent, then the next years was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2022 show featured artists like DJ Diesel, or Shaquille O’Neal, and Lorde.
