Riot Fest has once again returned with an unbelievable lineup for 2023. Somehow, someway Riot Fest is the festival that keeps on giving and getting better — once again returning to Chicago’s Douglass park and taking place September 15th-17th.
This year’s headliners include Foo Fighters, The Cure, The Postal Service, Death Cab for Cutie, and Queens of the Stone Age. Other top-billed artists making an appearance at Riot Fest include the rising Turnstile, AFI, The Mars Volta, Tegan and Sara, 100 Gets, The Gaslight Anthem, Death Grips, Mr. Bungle, and many more fan favorites.
Outside of music, Riot Fest has always prided itself on creating an annual weekend experience that has included freak shows, Lucha Libre, panel discussions, and late night after-party shows. In addition to the return of carnival ride’s and last year’s wildly popular wedding chapel, 2023 will find Logan Arcade on hand at Riot Fest with free vintage arcade games for attendees to enjoy.
Tickets are on-sale now and can be purchased here. See the full lineup below.
