Riot Fest is a punk, rock and alternative music festival formed in Chicago in 2005. The festival proposes a diverse lineup consisting of buzzed-about reunions, one-offs, special guest appearances and popular punk mainstays. Incarnations of Riot Fest are also held in Denver and Toronto. Despite the multi-city expansion Chicago has remained the festival’s flagship event with nearly three times as many bands as the others.
