Riot Fest just upped the ante with a mind-boggling assortment of after-shows across Chicago.

Tickets for all of the 2019 Late Night shows will go on sale tomorrow, Friday, August 9, at 10:00 a.m. CDT.

Everyone’s favorite superheroes The Aquabats will kick things off with an early show at  Metro Thursday evening before the fest. Friday late night shows include Lucero at Cobra Lounge, PVRIS at Bottom Lounge, and Dashboard Confessional at Reggie’s Rock Club—as well as the Emo Night Brooklyn DJ party at Metro.

Saturday night, Descendents are rocking Bottom Lounge; Hot Snakes hit the stage at Cobra Lounge; Taking Back Sunday (performing Where You Want to Be) and The Get Up Kids team up at Concord Music Hall; Against Me! will take over the Metro
(performing both As The Eternal Cowboy and New Wave front-to-back) and Cock Sparrer will perform at Reggie’s. Sunday night, Avail will headline the Bottom Lounge, and Teenage Bottlerocket will headline Cobra Lounge.

Like a lot of good music, Riot Fest began in a basement, when a rabid fan wanted to  connect his favorite bands with like-minded music lovers in Chicago. Fifteen years and  1,500+ bands later, Riot Fest returns to Douglas Park with a stacked array of bands to score the festivities—featuring many friends of Riot Fest returning to pay tribute to the festival and its loyal fans, alongside iconic and emerging artists who reflect the broad musical tastes the festival is known for. Daily lineups have been unveiled, and both single day and two-day tickets are on sale now.
