This year should make you more amped than ever to buy Riot Fest passes. Not only are the artists envy-inducing, but the 10th Anniversary special will feature tons of special events, prizes and surprises for fans in attendance; from carnivalesque attractions to food trucks, a ferris wheel and more. The 2014 Riot Fest lineup includes The Cure, Jane’s Addiction, Wu-Tang Clan, the National, Rise Against, Flaming Lips, the Offspring, The Used, Descendants, Slayer, Pussy Riot, Cheap Trick, Tegan and Sarad, Death Cab for Cutie and dozens more.
One decade ago, Riot Fest was launched in Chicago as a pillar of underground music, allowing local bands to showcase their talents to a wider audience. Now, Riot Fest has expanded in size, genre and popularity, booking bigger bands and spreading out to three cities in total. Riot Fest Toronto will hit up Downsview Park from 9/6-9/7, Riot Fest Chicago will play the usual Humboldt Park from 9/12-9/14 and Riot Fest Denver will take over Sports Authority Field from 9/20-9/21. The lineup is tweaked slightly for each city, so make sure to check each schedule before picking up your pair of Riot Fest tickets.
