    Default Riot Fest Chicago 2013 On sale NOW!

    We’re kicking off the holiday season a bit early this year with some deals! This morning we’ve released a limited number of Early Bird 3-Day & 3-Day VIP passes as a special holiday gift to you; we have some of the best and most loyal fans around and wanted to give all of you first crack at getting the cheapest admission to Riot Fest Chicago 2013. These will make the perfect gift for your significant other, your kids, a particularly nice co-worker or the most important person in all of this, yourself!

    We’re returning to Humboldt Park from September 13 – 15 next year and want to see all of your smiling faces there again so click over to our ticket page and snap these passes up now, because they won’t last long. We also have some service charge free locations (The Congress Theater and The Music Garage) so make sure to read the full ticket page for their locations and schedules.

    As a special gift to those of you who have stuck with us, when you buy a pass you’ll automatically be entered into a contest; those who buy a regular 3-Day pass are entered to win a VIP upgrade and those who purchase a 3-Day VIP pass are entered to win five VIP passes to spread amongst friends and family!

    Don’t forget we’re also still running the pre-order for our re-print of the Riot Fest And Carnival 2012 t-shirt until November 29, so bundle the two together for a perfect holiday package gift!

    2012 was without a doubt the greatest year in Riot Fest’s history so let’s cap it off in style and forge ahead into 2013!

    UPDATE:You spoke, we listened! Early Bird Tickets have been marked down to $18/day, just like last year. Only a VERY limited number available with this new, low price. For those who already purchased tickets, the difference will be refunded.

    The lineup for this tends to be up my alley. Has anyone done Riot Fest before? And, if so, opinion? Chicago can be fun.

    There's only been one (in the current format), so it is a tough sell to buy blind on the basis of one previous festival, although $54 isn't much of a risk.

    This year's fest was OK. The fest itself is in an absolute shithole of a neighborhood, but that would be my only complaint regardless of the price point. Aftershows (which may or may not be included in the 3 day passes) are the saving grace.

    Wow! Except for the headliners, this is a pretty solid line up! It's like a mix of good old warped tour days and fyf/pitchfork crowds!

    Man, I wished I lived in Chicago. Being from SD I have a special place in my heart for Blink, but I agree with Fall Out Boy being a weak headliner. I wonder who the "??????????" is...

    Would love to see Rise Against or Iggy on there!

    This looks like a lineup I'd put together. This is probably 2nd to ACL for lineup of the year

    Didn't both Rise Against & Iggy Pop play this last year?

    Interesting to see AFI on the lineup after being away for so long.

    ???? might be Black Flag? They're playing in Chicago next month so they can't announce it yet....

    My guess is Yeah Yeah Yeahs. They fit the amount of letters in the question marks and they are playing a Radio Station festival in Chicago next month which could be why they cant be announced yet.

    A buddy of mine who knows a few of the promoters said Green Day was the third headliner but I don't really know if he was being serious or not. Seems a bit far fetched, although they finish up in Europe 2 weeks before this fest so maybe they will be swinging back through.

    Anyway, Motorhead, Rancid, Public Enemy, GBV, Blondie, Femmes, RFTC, Bad Religion, Gwar, Stars, Devotchka, Smoking Popes!!!

    I had heard some Green Day rumors as well, but I don't think they would be billed below Fall Out Boy and Blink 182. Maybe they dropped out?

    I don't think it's billed below if they are headlining. I think it's "and btw, look at who else we also got to headline"

    I don't think official days the bands are playing have been announced yet. Anyways, I would book my flight right now if RATM was the mystery headliner...but you would be begging for trouble if you had RATM play at a festival called "Riot Fest"

    Is it likely that they'd be playing two festivals in Chicago within a couple of months of each other?

    (I'm hoping it's not YYY since I am seeing them at OSL anyway)

    I'm going to this. First time in Chicago and if GBV is only playing one show this year I gotta go. Not to mention how great the rest of the lineup is (though not so much the headliners).
