Riot Fest Announces Schedule, Additional Performers | WIN TICKETS!

By: Alex Wood

Shortly before single day tickets went on sale for Chicago's Riot Fest, festival organizers annouced the daily schedules, including a few surprise additions to the already massive lineup.

Amongst the bands added are The Flaming Lips, Sleater-Kinney, Julian Marley performing Bob Marley's Exodus in full, The Bronx, Fucked Up and The So So Glos.

The eclectic lineup seems to be organized slightly to taste. Friday features the stranger acts like The Flaming Lips, Ween, Meat Puppets and Diarrhea Planet. Saturday features more accessible names like Morrissey, Death Cab For Cutie, Motion City Soundtrack's final show and the majority of the hip-hop acts, while Sunday offers the much-hyped Misfits reunion alongside a number of large alternative names such as Sleater-Kinney, Rob Zombie and Bad Religion.

We are pleased to be partnering with the folks at Riot Fest to set some of our readers up with a 3-day pass to the fest.  Check out the details below.
