The 2022 Riot Fest line up is here!
Headlining this year’s festival is My Chemical Romance, The Original Misfits, and Nine Inch Nails. Both Nine Inch Nails and My Chemical Romance were originally booked to play last year, but dropped out due to COVID concerns. Meanwhile, The Misfits will perform their 1982 album Walk Among Us.
Other acts on the bill are Jimmy Eat World, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Bauhaus, Alkaline Trio, YUNGBLUD, Bad Religion, Gwar, The Academy Is…, Alexisonfire, The Front Bottoms, The Get Up Kids, POORSTACY, Placebo and more.
“I think this year’s lineup really speaks to who we are,” says founder Mike Petryshyn. “It’s been a minute since we’ve gotten to curate a lineup like this. I’m especially excited for what this is leading into: the stuff that’s happening in the next few weeks, and the years to come.”
Single day, two day, and three day passes are on sale now. Get tickets and see single day lineups here.
Riot Fest takes place September 16th, 17th, and 18th at Douglas Park in Chicago, Illinois.
