Riot Fest 2016 Lineup Features Morrissey, Deftones and Probably All Your Other Favorite Bands
Riot Fest revealed the bulk of the acts playing this year's events in Chicago and Denver, and if it doesn't make you lunge for your debit card, perhaps nothing will.
Riot Fest Denver takes place Sept. 2 through 4 at the National Western Complex and features Deftones, Ween and Death Cab for Cutie along with Jane's Addiction, who will be performing their 1990 classic Ritual de lo Habitual. Other acts include Sleater-Kinney, Descendents, NOFX, Against Me!, Bad Religion, Thursday, Meat Puppets, Motion City Soundtrack, Fitz and the Tantrums, Yo La Tengo, Sleigh Bells, the Dandy Warhols, Murder By Death and more.
Riot Fest Chicago will be Sept. 16 through 18 in Douglas Park and, in addition to the previously announced reunion of the Misfits, includes Morrissey, Social Distortion (performing White Light, White Heat, White Trash), Bob Mould, Brand New, Andrew W.K., Refused, Death Grips, Rob Zombie (performing White Zombie's Astro-Creep: 2000), the Specials, the Hives and many more.
That's pretty much every band you could ever want to see. And a few like Deftones, Descendents and Thursday will be at both events. Chuck out all the artists revealed so far, but note there are still few big question marks (literally) on the posters for both Denver and Chicago.
Of course, you might have put together a few of the names yesterday when Riot Fest posted this hint-filled teaser.
