Chicago’s Riotfest Returns With A Crazy Lineup

Posted by on May 16, 2013

What would you say if we told you that Motorhead, GWAR, Quicksand, Glassjaw and Bad Brains and The Devil Wears Prada were playing a festival. Pretty cool, right? What about if we told you they were also appearing with the likes of Fall Out Boy, Blondie, Public Enemy and Violent Femmes? If you’re a straight up metal fan, you might be a little disappointed. However, that’s just part of the lineup of Chicago’s Riot Fest 2013, taking place this year on September 13, 14 and 15 at Humboldt Park.

Looking at the poster for the event, there are probably plenty of metal fans that are outraged that Fall Out Boy and Blink 182 are headlining over Motorhead. First of all, it’s a hometown gig for FOB, who recently debuted with the #1 album in America. Secondly, tickets are cheap enough, starting at just $23/day, that you could easily pick up a ticket, see the few bands you want to see, and not feel ripped off by the whole thing.
