Riot Fest 2016 Lineup Announced

Riot Fest 2016 Lineup Announced

On the heels of last week’s Original Misfits reunion announcement, Riot Fest has unveiled the first wave of 2016 artists for Riot Fest & Rodeo (Sept. 2-4, Denver, CO) and Riot Fest & Carnival (Sept, 16-18, Chicago, IL).

Known for its diverse booking, Riot Fest has continued their tradition of being left of the dial and programming both festivals in a fashion that defies the homogeneity seen between many festivals. In addition to the music programming, the festival often has quirky, original attractions. Over the years Riot Fest has had Lucha Libre (Mexican Wrestling), Freak Shows, a Butter Sculpturist, and a snowball fight, as well as staging a full carnival with games and rides.

Some of the highlights in each market include:

Riot Fest & Rodeo (Denver): The Original Misfits, Ween, Death Cab For Cutie, Jane’s Addiction (performingRitual De Lo Habitual), Sleater-Kinney, NAS, Deftones, Descendents, Wolf Parade, Yo La Tengo, Flatbush Zombies, Fitz and the Tantrums, Meat Puppets, The Dandy Warhols, Motion City Soundtrack & more

Riot Fest & Rodeo (Chicago): The Original Misfits, Morrissey, Ween, Death Cab For Cutie, Social Distortion (performing White Light, White Heat, White Trash), Rob Zombie (performing White Zombie’s Astro-Creep:2000), Brand New, NAS, Deftones, The Specials, Jimmy Eat World, Refused, Death Grips, Bob Mould, The Hives, Descendents & more.

Outside of several reunions, including The Original Misfits (Chicago and Denver), Thursday (Chicago and Denver), Set Your Goals(Chicago and Denver), Wolf Parade (Denver), The Anniversary (Chicago) and a rare appearance by Girls Against Boys (Chicago), several bands and artists will be performing their quintessential albums during Riot Fest 2016. Most notably, Social Distortion will be exclusively performing White Light, White Heat, White Trash on the exact date of the album’s initial release (Sept. 17, 1996) for a special 20th

Anniversary performance in Chicago. Moreover, Jane’s Addiction will perform Ritual De Lo Habitual in its entirety in Denver, while Rob Zombie’s first Riot Fest appearance will include an unexpected and exclusive album play of White Zombie’s Astro-Creep: 2000. The Hold Steady will also play(Boys and Girls in America).

The second wave of lineup announcements will go out in the coming weeks, and according to organizers, a few more surprises are in store.
