Riot Fest 2017 Lineup Offers Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stoneage, Jawbreaker, and a Whole Lot More!

Wow. Just wow. In a time where we see a lot of festival lineups looking a lot alike throughout the country, Riot Fest once again comes in with a one-two-(three!) punch of some of the best rock, punk, hip-hop and alternative acts you will see in one place this year (or ever, really), September 15-17 in Chicago.

They consistently offer one of the best lineups that you will find, and this year is absolutely no different. For the 2017 edition, they have brought in Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, and Jawbreaker to headline a stellar list of artists that also includes New Order, Paramore, Prophets of Rage, M.I.A., Wu-Tang Clan, a Mike D DJ set, Taking Back Sunday, A Day to Remember, Gogol Bordello, Vic Mensa, Dirty Heads and so many more. The list of current chart-toppers and nostalgic bands goes on and on. Oh, and Andrew W.K. and GWAR, of course. It’s not really a Riot Fest party until they show up.

Without a Denver counterpart this year, this is your only opportunity to get your Riot fix. Taking up residence again this year in Chicago’s Douglas Park, you really won’t want to miss this one! Tickets go on sale today at 1 pm EDT, so don’t squat on scooping these up for too long!

Who are you most excited to see this year at Riot Fest? Let us know, and we hope to see you there!

To say the live music experience is an obsession for Amanda (Mandi) Nulph is an understatement. It was instilled in her by her parents at a young age and hasn't stopped since. It's ultimately what motivated her to pursue a degree in Journalism and Mass Media, so she could share her love of music and encourage others to get out there and enjoy a show.

Aside from writing about music and entertainment, she also spent some time working in the industry at Fueled by Ramen Records and has been known to snap some photos (and video) from time to time. Mandi is based in Florida, but travels extensively so keep an eye out for her at your next festival!
