    Theres only a small portion that is costing them whatever amount of money you think theyre supposed to command. So Weezer is getting 6 figures for this?

    I think they'll close out the fest with Jane's. Rumor has it Jane's is going to play Nothing Shocking in full. It's Riot Fest, they aren't gonna close their fest with The National. I'd imagine a majority of the crowd are pissed about The National actually.

    Can anyone that's been to the Chicago one comment on the VIP? We don't drink alcohol so the drink tickets are meaningless to us - we just care about the viewing areas. Are they terrible like FFF or decent? My friend that went to Riot Fest Denver last year said that VIP viewing was 20% of side stage going up to the front which would definitely make it worth it to us if Chicago is the same.

    Weezer, Slayer, Jane’s Addiction to Perform Full Albums at Riot Fest10 groups playing full-lengths at Chicago edition, including the Offspring, NOFX and Glenn Danzig's group Samhain

    Weezer, Slayer, Jane's Addiction and several other groups will be playing albums from their respective catalogs in full at the Chicago edition of Riot Fest this summer, with one more unannounced band set to round out the festival's "10 Years. 10 Essential Albums" program. The fest's headliners this year include the Cure, Wu-Tang Clan, the National and the Flaming Lips.

    Summer 2014's 40 Must-See Music Festivals: Riot Fest

    The albums that their respective bands will be revisiting in Chicago this year include: Weezer's Weezer (Blue Album), Slayer's Reign in Blood, Jane's Addiction's Nothing's Shocking, the Glenn Danzig–fronted group Samhain's Initium, the Offspring's Smash, NOFX's Punk in Drublic, the Descendents' Milo Goes to College, Naked Raygun's Throb Throb and the Get Up Kids' Something to Write Home About. Weezer, Slayer and NOFX will also perform their albums front to back at the Denver offshoot.

    The Offspring's 'Smash': The Little Punk LP That Defeated the Majors

    While nine bands have been announced as part of the series, organizers have hinted that one more major announcement is on the way. "During last year’s Violent Femmes’ set at Riot, where they performed Violent Femmes unannounced in its entirety, it dawned on me that if we ever did an album play thing at Riot, we should make it something that the fans would remember years from now," said Riot Fest partner Michael Petryshyn. "I was walking back to my trailer after their set and it hit me… '10 Years. 10 Essential Albums' and it grew from there."

    Now in its 10th year, Riot Fest will once again take place in three cities at different times this year, each with a unique circus-style theme (last year's Chicago date included Lucha Libre wrestling and a Ferris wheel). Toronto's Riot Fest & Expo will take place on September 6th and 7th at Downsview Park, Chicago's Riot Fest & Carnival will happen between September 12th and 14th in Humboldt Park and Denver's Riot Fest & Sideshow is slated for September 19th – 21st at May Farms.

    The Chicago edition of the festival will be the first time Gwar perform since the death of frontman Dave Brockie, who portrayed the character Oderus Urungus. Pussy Riot's two freed members, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina, will also take part in an interactive panel with other Russian artists and once-imprisoned activists.

    Tickets are available for all three festivals at Ticketfly.

    Fuck, I really need to go to this especially with Slint being a possible addition. Still holding out to see what FYF and FFF have in store though.

    I'm in the same boat you are (non-drinking). We bought VIP last year, sold the drink tickets to random people that were drinking for $1 less than the beer cost, and were perfectly happy. You could use the tickets on soda/water, but that's pretty silly since those cost $1-$2.

    The VIP sections differed due to the vagaries of the park. The main stage (Blink, Replacements, FOB) VIP is no better than "OK" because even if you are at the closest point to the stage, you are still way on the side (positions that you can usually get to anyway if you're OK with being wide instead of central). The upside for the main stage VIP is that it was VERY roomy. We were never crowded for any set, and happily leaned against the fences from a sharp angle. The second stage is weirdly aligned. It curved from the access point around to the sound board, so it provides you with a more central view, but you aren't anywhere near the rail. This access was always the most crowded of the weekend (Pixies), and could be uncomfortable at times. The third stage has VIP that is very tight (maybe 10 yards wide?) but runs for probably 150 yards of depth. There are also tables here (which you can sit at or stand atop). Again, wide positioning, even if you go right to the closest spot. Really comfortable here as well (Suicidal, GWAR). Fourth stage had the best VIP section (worked well for Joan Jett, Hatebreed, and Public Enemy for us), but the shows here are likely to be middling at best. Also, this spot is tough to actually get to because you have to wade through the GA crowd to get in the door. We learned quickly that we had to get to the VIP here 5 minutes before any set we wanted to see. This is the smallest VIP section and they did shut it down when it got full. The fifth stage didn't have VIP.

    So...is it worth it? We're doing it again, FWIW. I want to be comfortable, and my wife wants to be able to take photos from close. I don't mind being wide as long as I can be close.

    If you want true front row, easy access (to more than half of the stage) from VIP....Voodoo fest is the one for you.
