Riot Fest is back. The lineups are killer, and ticket prices are punk-approved. We’re thrilled to announce with our longtime partners that The Replacements will return to the stage (after a 20-year hiatus!) at Riot Fest Chicago, Denver, and Toronto this summer. Fans are freaking out, and frankly– so are we. So mark your calendar and get ready to rock out.
Don’t miss Riot Fest Toronto at Fort York. In addition to The Replacements, the lineup also boasts great talent like: A Day To Remember, Iggy & the Stooges, Pierce The Veil, The Weakerthans, Every Time I Die, Dinosaur Jr, Mayday Parade, Rocket from the Crypt, Grade, Best Coast, The Ghost Inside, The Flatliners, Structures, and Single Mothers. Check out the full Toronto lineup here.
Head to Humboldt Park for the 8th Riot Fest in Chi town (home of the OG Riot Fest). Tons of astounding bands and artists will be performing; Fall Out Boy, Blink 182, Motörhead, Blondie, Public Enemy, Violent Femmes, Atmosphere, and many more will be there. Check out the full Chicago lineup here.
Bands like Blink 182, Rancid, Iggy and the Stooges, and AFI Riot Fest are coming to May Farms in Byers, Colorado. Check out the full Denver lineup here.
Riot Fest isn’t just about the music. The tradition carries on with a travelling exposition. There will be a classic carnival with plenty of rides and attractions. Grab a corn dog and ride the ferris wheel between sets (or get a drink). It’s going to be a freak show, don’t worry.
Our old friends at Riot Fest have been cranking out festivals in celebration of punk, rock, indie rock, alternative, metal, gangster rap, and ska since 2005. Past line-ups included legendary bands like Weezer, Rise Against, The Offspring, Coheed and Cambria, and the Descendents. Riot Fest 2013 will be bigger and better than ever. See you there!
