If its initial lineups are any indication, this will be the best year for Riot Fest yet, as festival organizers have announced the first wave of Denver and Chicago artists. Hitting the stage at Riot Fest this year will not only be the reunion of the original Misfits, but Morrisey, Death Cab For Cutie, Rob Zombie, Jane’s Addiction, Sleater-Kinney, Fitz & The Tantrums, Jimmy Eat World, All Time Low, Death Grips and many more will be performing at this year’s Riot Fest. And don’t assume that it is all rock either, fans will also catch memorable performances from Nas, Tyler The Creator, Joey Bada$$ and Method Man & Redman this year.
Riot Fest will kick off this year in Chicago on September 16-18th at Douglas Park, and September 2-4th in Denver at the National Western Complex. You’ll definitely want to grab your festival passes fast for this one, so visit RiotFest.org or Ticketfly.com for more ticket info.

Although New York’s premiere music festival doesn’t kick off until June, just days after Coachella announced its 2016 lineup, so has The Governors Ball. And while The Governors Ball may not have the A-list reunions that fans will see in Indio this year, where Coachella dropped the ball, the governor picked right up. Headlining The Governors Ball this year will be none other than Kanye West, which is sure to be an energetic and talked about performance, especially since Coachella and potentially Bonnaroo (if rumors are true) will have no rap headliners this year.
Kanye surely won’t be the only big name traveling to New York this summer though, as The Governors Ball has also invited huge acts like The Killers, The Strokes, Beck, Robyn, Haim, Death Cab For Cutie and more. Fans will also see a variety of supporting acts too, with performances from Father John Misty, Vic Mensa, Action Bronson, Big Grams, Circa Waves, Eliot Sumner, Gary Clark JR. Miguel, and Vince Staples to name a few.
The Governors Ball takes place June 3-5 on Randall’s Island in New York City and you can get your tickets nowbefore they are all gone!
