Riot Fest is back at it again! Entering their tenth year, the organizers behind Riot Fest are ready to bring their biggest lineups yet to Toronto, Chicago, and Denver. They will be kicking things off in Toronto on September 6 & 7, then on to Chicago September 12-14, and finishing up the party in Denver September 19-21. With the help of friends and partners at Union Events and Soda Jerk Presents, Toronto and Denver will feature an expanded footprint with more carnival rides and attractions, diverse food options featuring regional offerings, and more. In celebration of Chicago's 10th anniversary, line-up announcements, special events and surprises will be released soon.
Riot Fest & Travelling Exposition takes place in Toronto, where it will be expanded to include a carnival, more stages, more music, and more good times. Riot Fest & Sideshow will hit Denver again this year with capital improvements including a redesigned camping area and renovations to the grounds that includes parking. Traffic plans will be revised for faster flow in and out.
Over the years, the festival has seen considerable growth – from a multi-venue festival thriving in a variety of Chicago's clubs, to the full scale, multi-city outdoor event that it is now. Riot Fest has become a premiere festival series that attracts music lovers of all ages from all over the world. Unified by a love of great bands and good fun, fans will stuff themselves with everything from carnival corndogs to ethnic and craft food while enjoying Lucha Libre, rides, attractions, side show performers and the most diverse line-ups available. Riot Fest has proved that it is here to stay, and you certainly don't want to miss out on the action!
