Riot Fest organizers have added a number of top-name acts to this year’s initial lineup, among them Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Suicidal Tendencies, Andrew W.K., T.S.O.L. and the Pixies.

Other new additions to the bill include Hatebreed, Off With Their Heads, the Flatliners, Nativ, Hostage Calm, the Interrupters, New Beat Fund and Pet Symmetry, and they’ll join the likes of the Replacements, Fall Out Boy, Blink 182, Violent Femmes, Rancid, Blondie, Public Enemy, Rocket From The Crypt, the Dismemberment Plan, Dinosaur Jr., Brand New, Pennywise, GWAR, the Lillingtons, Saves the Day, Bad Books, Guided By Voices, Best Coast, Against Me!, Pierce the Veil, the Dear Hunter, Taking Back Sunday and more.

According to a recent press release, the Pixies have been rehearsing all sorts of songs from their catalog in preparation for the upcoming fest — including a few rare gems.

“Along with everyone’s favorites, we’ll be playing songs that we haven’t played in ages or never played live before,” said Pixies’ frontman Black Francis. “Songs like ‘Brick is Red,’ ‘Havalina,’ ‘Tony’s Theme.’ and ‘Sad Punk.’ We’ve probably rehearsed some 80 songs, so we’ll be able to change up the set at the last minute if we feel like it.”

The three-day bash is set to take place at Chicago’s Humboldt Park from Sept. 13-15. Click here to buy your ticket now, if you haven’t done so already.
