Riot Fest 2022 – Lineup and Ticket Schedule
Yet another rock festival has been announced for 2022, and Riot Fest will be an epic event with all your favorite bands. Taking place September 16-18 in Chicago, IL, this music festival features headliners My Chemical Romance, Misfits, and Nine Inch Nails, plus nearly 100 more artists in the “Windy City.”
There are already plenty of rock festivals to look forward to in 2022. However, most are aimed toward a particular subgenre. When We Were Young is made for the former emo kids, Aftershock is a heavy metal lover’s dream, and Firefly is meant for those who love both mainstream rock and pop superstars. Riot Fest, on the other hand, has something for every rock fan, with a side of hip-hop. From punk and indie to alternative and rap-rock, get ready to rage with Alkaline Trio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Jimmy Eat World, Ice Cube, YUNGBLUD, and many more.
Another thing that Riot Fest is known for, besides being an originator of the highly-popular amalgamation of rock and rap? Hosting recently-reunited bands. They’ve played a role in Naked Raygun, The Replacements, and The Misfits getting back together, believe it or not. And now, they’re adding My Chemical Romance and Sunny Day Real Estate to the roster for reunion tours that emo kids worldwide have been dreaming about.
There’s a lot to love about Riot Fest besides just the rockin’ lineup. It has a prime location in the middle of Chicago, great bites for the foodies, and bonding moments with your best friends as you fist-pump to the best rock bands and hip-hop heroes. There’s no other music festival like Riot Fest, and you’ll get the whole experience with one, two, or three day passes. Check the lineup and get your Riot Fest tickets today!
