It sure seems like you can’t go one weekend in the summer without a music festival. That much we’ve learned to accept. But Riot Fest offers something unique, and its 2014 lineup is packed.

Death Cab for Cutie, the National, Metric, City and Colour, Rise Against, Social Distortion, Tokyo Police Club and Taking Back Sunday are just a few of the 50 total bands that will play across four stages at Toronto’s Downsview Park on Sept. 6-7.

Riot Fest has built itself around a carnival atmosphere. So while you’re checking out all the bands, you’ll also be able to enjoy all the ethnic and craft food you can handle, along with rides, attractions, sideshow performers and more.

Tickets for the Riot Fest & Expo Toronto will be available on May 10. Tickets range from $99.98 to $199.98 and include general two-day passes and two-day VIP passes. The lineups for Riot Fest’s Denver and Chicago events will also be released soon. You can find more info about the festival here.

To get you in the mood, here’s City and Colour’s ‘The Girl’ from their 2008 album ‘Bring Me Your Love.’
