Riot Fest 2013

Chicago’s punk and alternative music festival extraordinaire, Riot Fest, will officially return for its eighth annual event this fall. The September affair will feature three days – the 13, 14 and 15th – of the best in both underground and mainstream rock, with Fall Out Boy and Blink 182 set to headline.

Joining this pair of everyone’s favorite middle-school bands, will be Motorhead, Blondie, Public Enemy, Best Coast, Maps & Atlases, Taking Back Sunday, Sublime, Say Anything, The Devil Wears Prada, and a slew of other eclectically grouped acts. After hopping around from venue to venue for its first several years, in 2012 Riot Fest finally settled on Chicago’s Humboldt Park, which will once again serve as the locale du jour this year. Some tickets to the festival, the best the West has to offer (at least in September), are on sale now, but as we are still many, many months away from Riot Fest’s kickoff date, be sure to keep checking back here as more discount links become available!
