Riot Fest is returning to Chicago for its 15th anniversary. Headliners include Rise Against, Die Antwoord, Ween and 2018’s last minute dropout, Blink 182. Others include Bikini Kill, The Raconteurs, Avail, and Jawbreaker as bands reuniting specifically to headline the festival.
Daily lineups dropped this morning, but, truth be told, it doesn’t matter. This year’s poster is stacked from top to bottom with phenomenal acts. In just a few weeks Riot is pulling out the big guns with the legendary Patti Smith, the ultra fun Village People, and the reuniting of bands like Bikini Kill and The Raconteurs. Festival organizers truly went all out for the 15th anniversary.
The festivities return to Douglas Park the weekend of September 13-15. With the announcement of the daily schedules also came a surprise update on pricing on single-day passes. For a limited time you can purchase single-day tickets for only $49.98. Weekend passes on sale now for $149 plus taxes and fees.
