With the Chicago line-up already carrying an extremely heavy pack of talent in celebration of its 10th anniversary, Riot Fest has done the unthinkable and added even more incredible bands. Primus, Tokyo Police Club, Say Anything, The Hold Steady, Frank Iero, Only Crime, Lemuria, Pity S*x, From Indian Lakes, Lucki Eck$, Tiny Moving Parts, The Bots, The Picturebooks, and Survay Says will join acts like The Cure, The National, Jane’s Addiction, Weezer, Flaming Lips, Slayer and Wu-Tang Clan on 7 stages at Humboldt Park September 12-14.
“This is really about thanking our fans. The work put into the lineups this year and things like the essential albums plays is for them… as clichéd as it may sound, it’s the truth. We’d be nowhere without them and maybe the way we thank them is by giving them a fest where we can all sing along”, explained Mike Petryshyn, festival founder.
On top of the flagship festival in Chicago, Riot Fest will also take over Toronto (September 6-7), and Denver (September 19-21). Tickets for all 3 fests are on sale now at www.ticketfly.com and lineups can be viewed at www.riotfest.org. As previously promised, more news and announcements are coming soon, so stay tuned!
