Riot Fest announces lineup for its 15th anniversary

Photo by: Riot Fest

Summer is officially here (well, almost here for some of us), and that means festival season is quickly upon us. While we’ve still got some time until any fests come up, we can at least rejoice in some lineup announcements.

And the time has come: Riot Fest has finally announced their lineup for their 15th anniversary!

Returning to Douglas Park for its 15th year, Riot Fest is bringing a seriously stacked lineup to its annual festival, which is set to hit the Chicago, Illinois park for three days – from September 13 through September 15.

You can check out the full list of bands below, but until then, here’s some highlighted ones you might be interested in:

Blink-182, who you may remember had to cancel their 2018 appearance following a health scare, are set to hit the stage at this year’s fest to act as headliners. What’s more? Slayer will be performing their final Chicago and Milwaukee shows and a recently reunited Bikini Kill will also be making an appearance.

As if that wasn’t exciting enough, a whole slew of bands, including Taking Back Sunday, The Flaming Lips, Dashboard Confessional, Against Me! and more, will be doing full album performances

Ticket packages to the festival are available now, and to get yours, you can go here!
