Riot Fest 2013 Brings Classic Punk To Chicago This September

Riot Fest Poster

It's time to start making preparations for one of the loudest festivals of the year: Riot Fest 2013 featuring headline sets from the likes of Pixies, The Replacements and Blink-182.

Taking place in Chicago on September 13th - 15th 2013 at Humboldt Park, Riot Fest is set to be possibly THE hottest punk festival of the year having been staging some of the biggest rock legends since its inception in 2005. It's bigger and better than ever before and there isn't just live music to enjoy either; there's an array of carnival rides and Lucha Libre plus a massive range of meal choices suitable for everyone.

Aside from those already mentioned, among some of the big acts to hit Chicago this fall are classics in the form of Fall Out Boy, Violent Femmes, Rancid and Blondie who will all be up there with the headliners, not to mention the smaller but nonetheless legendary names such as AFI, Public Enemy, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Taking Back Sunday and All Time Low. If you can't make it to Chicago this year, remember Riot Fest 2013 will also hit Denver on September 21st - 22nd and Toronto on August 24th - 25th with slightly different line-ups but the same amount of punk paradise.
