Bring back all ages night venues to Rifflandia festival

The Rifflandia music festival in Victoria, BC is in it's 10th year and has in the past always been a great event for families. The festival adds to the vibrant music scene in Victoria, and showcases a great deal of new/local talent as well as acts from across the globe. All ages venues at night have provided a much needed event for the youth and future musicians in this city to get out and explore new music, new ideas, and to help create a sense of community and belonging.
This year, they have eliminated all ages night venues from the festival. Many youth have been attending this festival for years, as young children with their families, and as independent teens exploring their city. Many youth have pre-purchased super-passes that allow access to the night venues and are now left with no options.
All ages venues provide a safe space for youth to interact and be a part of the vibrant Victoria music scene and the Rifflandia community. These youth are the musicians of the future, who will likely one day be on one of these stages performing. By bringing back all ages venues to the festival, it will provide a place for youth in this city to get out and engage with their community, expand their horizons, and build a stronger fan base for many of the local and international acts that come to play.
