12 Artists to See at Riot Fest 2017

posted by Oscar September 12, 2017

It’s Riot Fest week!! The Chicago festival is best known for putting together some of the nation’s best lineups year after year, bringing back iconic bands for special reunions along the way, and the 2017 edition is right up there among their best ever.

We’ve been attending the Punk-rooted festival since 2011 and this year’s going to be a bit different for us, as it marks the first time we’re attending as part of the press. So instead of sneaking our way to the front rails to see the action up-front or hopping from mosh pit to mosh pit, we’ll be bouncing around all of Douglas Park this weekend to take in all it’s got to offer and taking photography of the artists we are most eager to see from this lineup.

We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite artists on the lineup that we are looking forward to seeing perform live at Riot Fest 2017. Check out the can’t-miss acts below.

A day after some of the Wu-Tang Clan hit Letterman to perform, the NYC crew released the title track off their forthcoming album, A Better Tomorrow. As Stereogum points out, the Wu samples the Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes and Teddy Pendergrass collaboration “Wake Up Everybody” for this track.

It’s cool to see the cover art though, as they take a page out of the Foo Fighters’ last album cover, and incorporated landmark building from across the globe and put them along what would be the world’s greatest coast.

Hear “A Better Tomorrow” below. Continue Reading
