riot fest

It’s that time again. After teasing fans for a few days, and earlier this year releasing a polka video to get fans guessing, Riot Fest has finally revealed the first wave of their 2018 lineup. It’s a good one.

The main acts, so far, appear to be blink-182, Beck, Elvis Costello, Incubus, Young the Giant, Interpol, Blondie, Alkaline Trio, Father John Misty, and Jerry Lee Lewis. It doesn’t get much better than that, if you’re being honest with yourself.

Some other highlights will include The Wonder Years, Bleachers, Dropkick Murphys, Bad Religion, Flogging Molly, Underoath, The Front Bottoms, and many, many more.

Keep in mind, this is just the first wave of bands announced. It’s unclear how many spots are left to be revealed, though according to the Riot Fest flyer, it looks like there may be at least one more headliner to be announced. The date for the second wave lineup reveal has yet to be announced, but this first wave alone should get you more than excited.

Below you will find the Riot Fest flyer and full lineup. If you are thinking about going, you can check out ticket options here.
