Riot Fest Chicago 2016

Fuck yes, it’s Riot Fest announcement day! The first wave of the 2016 lineup announcement delivered big news today, revealing the acts heading to Denver and Chicago this coming September 2-4 and 16-18, respectively. Joining the reunited Misfits are Morrissey, Jane’s Addiction (Denver only; performing Ritual de lo Habitual), Death Cab For Cutie, Sleater-Kinney (Denver only), Rob Zombie, Nas, Deftones, and Tyler the Creator.

Some of the other dope acts playing fest are Ween, Death Grips, Vince Staples, Jimmy Eat World, Jake Bugg, The Hives, Chevy Metal, Method Man & Redman, Joey Bada$$, Gwar (of course),  and Highly Suspect.

We must note that, though it has just about all of the lineup already, this is just the first wave. Both the Chicago and Denver stops of the fest are yet to reveal a headliner, so that’s something to keep an eye out for. Fingers crossed on Rage Against The Machine…
