Chicago’s Riot Fest Reveals Huge Lineup: The Cure, Slayer, Wu-Tang Clan, More to Perform
Last week Riot Fest announced slightly more compact and yet still impressive rosters for their Toronto and Denver shows, both headlined by The Cure. Book-ending the Chicago festival, Toronto’s Riot Fest & Expo is set for Sept. 6-7 at Downsview Park and Denver’s Riot Fest & Sideshow takes over May Farms Sept. 19-21.
The three-day festival returns to Humboldt Park Sept. 12-14.
Dwarfing the lineup of its sister festivals, the Chicago lineup also features sets from Jane’s Addiction, The National, Weezer, The Flaming Lips, Social Distortion, The Offspring, Cheap Trick and Pussy Riot.
