Rifflandia - Victoria, BC, September 22-25
The first group of artists for Rifflandia at Victoria, B.C.'s Royal Athletic Park, Sept. 22-25, have been announced. Super pleased to report that Hip Hop icons De La Soul are among them, and if you need a reason to head over to the island, this is it. We found the video from "Stakes is High" circa 1996. Surprisingly, it has held up very well considering 15 years have past. It is definitely a testament to the groups unique flow and trail blazing sound. Other acts for the show include City and Colour, Jay Mascis (of Dinosaur Jr. fame), Broken Social Scene and Blackiliscious. Tickets went on sale today on ticketmaster.ca.
