Riot Fest is a go this September 17-19 at Douglas Park, Chicago, IL. The fest has announced new additions to the line-up, including Faith No More, a recently reunited Mr. Bungle DEVO, NOFX, and Dinosaur Jr., alongside headliners Nine Inch Nails.
Other bands playing the 2021 dates include The Smashing Pumpkins, Run the Jewels, The Ghost Inside, and Motion City Soundtrack.
Plans for 2022’s fest are already underway too, with My Chemical Romance and The Original Misfits (performing Walk Among Us in full) announced as headliners. Next year’s festival is scheduled to take place September 16–18.
As a treat to fans, previous ticket holders can purchase 2022 passes at a special price for a limited time; ticket transfers to next year, refunds, and layaway options are also available (more info is available on Riot Fest’s website).
Safety measures regarding COVID-19—a top priority this year—will be frequently updated, as directed by local health and public safety officials.
