If you couldn’t get wristbands in time for Lollapalooza’s huge 25th Anniversary or if you just want to extend your Lollapalooza plans, don’t worry because the premiere Chicago music festival has announced over 50 aftershows/parties featuring 110+ artists. With some awesome intimate performances from some of the lineup’s best artists, including Jane’s Addiction, Major Lazer Soundsystem (Diplo, Walshy Fire and Jillionaire), X Ambassadors, The 1975, Mac Miller, Halsey, Vince Staples and many more, you can catch some memorable performances at some of Chicago’s best and most historic venues.
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.
