Chicago’s Riot Fest Reveals Huge Lineup: The Cure, Slayer, Wu-Tang Clan, More to Perform

Organizers of Chicago’s Riot Fest have announced their 10th-anniversary lineup, featuring more than 100 acts and headlining performances from The Cure, Slayer, and Wu-Tang Clan.

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.
