Events: Riot Fest 2013 Lineup [Update]

posted by Oscar May 15, 2013

Festival lineup announcements are being made seemingly every other week, and now it’s Riot Fest’s turn. The formal announcement will be made later tonight at 10PM CT, so stay tuned for that later. and highlights include Fall Out Boy and Blink 182.

I attended Riot Fest last year when the lineup included Rise Against, Coheed & Cambria, Gogol Bordello, the Offspring and Iggy & the Stooges plus others. If this year’s fest boasts a lineup that can compare to the last one, Riot Fest 2013 will surely be another great Chicago music festival.

The Festival running from September 13-15 in Chicago’s Humboldt Park will also have Motörhead, Rancid, AFI, Blondie, Public Enemy and Violent Femmes.

See the lineup below. Continue Reading
