Still, of those that have impressed with their lineup, Riot Fest may stand above them all, with a rock lover’s dream assortment booked for dates in Denver, Toronto, and Chicago, the latter of which is the crown jewel.

Now, Chicago has announced the daily breakdown for their fest, taking place Sept. 12-14. Opening day on Friday will be anchored by Jane’s Addiction, Slayer,The Offspring, Gogol Bordello, Pussy Riot, and Rise Against.
