Chicagoans are doing their best to snatch title of live music capitol of the world from Austin, Texas. With Lollapalooza and today’s announcement of the Riot Festival and Carnival, the Windy City is fast on their way to claiming the crown.
Riot Festival organizers have just unveiled this year’s line-up. To mark the festival’s 8th year, they came correct with major rock and punk acts like Chicago natives Rise Against along with Iggy And The Stooges, The Offspring, Elvis Costello, A Day To Remember, NOFX, Descendents, Dropkick Murphys and many more.
Chicago is a city that should be on everyone’s bucket list and this may finally be your excuse to buy that plane ticket.
