Riot Fest 2016 - Chicago

Riot Fest just keeps getting better, as the latest announcement brings plenty to get you pumped for the seminal Punk festival. Today’s update unveils the daily lineups for both the Denver and Chicago legs of the fest to push some single-day tix, but it also brought the news that Julian Marley (performing his father Bob’s Exodus), Sleater-Kinney, The Flaming Lips, The Julie Ruin, and The Bronx have all been added to the Chicago lineup! That would surely make anyone that already bought their passes only more excited.

Riot Fest Denver has a whole lotta dopeness coming their way too! Marley (also performing Exodus there), Gogol Bordello, 2 Chainz, and DeVotchKa are now part of that lineup too.

Single-Day and additional multi-day tickets for Riot Fest in Denver and Chicago will go on sale today (Tuesday, June 28th) at Noon CST on the festival’s website. Continue Reading
