    Primus are GREAT live lately. Seen them twice in recent years.

    I just read a cool article regarding Riot Fest on Dress Code Clothing's blog. I've known about this festival myself for quite some years now, but just never have had a chance to go. After reading (and checking my bank account), I think I might have to make the trip to Chicago this year. They mentioned there's a carnival for between shows and also food and beer trucks as always. Anyone returning that knows what the food's like? Regardless... Count me in!

    The food is OK, but I doubt that you'll find anything that really stands out. I would still recommend that you eat a hearty lunch before going in and just eat at the fest to keep yourself nourished. I can't think of any music festival, major or minor, where food is an actual enticement. If they can make food in a truck or in a tent, how good can it possibly be?

    Damn this festival looks like a ton of fun. It kinda weird with the exceptation of Rise Against that the first line is not in a bad way but probably some of the most softer sounding bands of the whole festival.

    thank gosh the festival has outgrown them. I never considered going to riot fest when it was mostly post whatever punk bands from the late 90s or 2000s. I never really liked that sound. I'm mostly going for the headliners. I guess I'm just not hardcore

    ya know, you're not hardcore unless you live hardcore. 2012 had a day that included bult to spill, elvis costello, iggy and the stooges (headlined) and jesus and mary chain. fuckin' stellar day.

    Sorry Drinkey...I'm pretty picky about what I'd call "good" food. I'm saying if I want good food, I'll eat in the city and I won't expect much from a tent or a truck.

    I mean, as far as festivals go you are probably right, but that blanket statement is pretty silly. We are having a food truck renaissance now, where people flock all over cities to get gourmet food made in trucks. The equipment and materials and be brought and used anywhere to make amazing food.

    Very true. My part time job allows me to work at many different events. Some of the best food I've ever had has come from people cooking food underneath a canopy or in a truck.

    Riot Fest Denver daily schedule drops today at 7pm MDT. No mention of adds which is kind of disappointing but you never know. The timing seems a little weird since Denver is the furthest from selling out at this point so I would assume daily tickets won't be offered at the same time. But on the other hand it doesn't make much sense to release daily lineups without daily tickets so maybe they will?

    EDIT:
    Denver daily lineups:

    Friday, Sept. 19

    Weezer * The Flaming Lips * Primus * Slayer * NOFX
    Gogol Bordello * Die Antwoord * New Found Glory * Failure Buzzcocks * ALL * La Dispute * Mineral * Big Freedia * The Orwells * Skaters * Nostalghia * My Body Sings Electric * Tiny Moving Parts

    Saturday, Sept. 20

    The Cure * Social Distortion * A Day to Remember * Descendents * Violent Femmes * Bring Me The Horizon * City and Colour * Lucero * The Used * Taking Back Sunday * Clutch * Face to Face * Hot Snakes Glassjaw * Dum Dum Girls * We Came as Romans * Larry and His Flask * I Am The Avalanche * The Bots * Plague Vendor * Pianos Become The Teeth * Red City Radio * Dads

    Sunday, Sept. 21

    The National * Rise Against * Sublime with Rome * Wu-Tang Clan
    TV On The Radio * Dropkick Murphys * Me First and the Gimme Gimmes * Manchester Orchestra * Bouncing Souls * Bob Mould * The Expendables 3OH!3 * Passafire * The Menzingers * The Unlikely Candidates * Radkey Cerebral Ballzy * In the Valley Below * Wounds * Sole & DJ Pain 1

    Looks like Stiff Little Fingers were dropped, which is a bit disappointing

    Friday seems like it will have a lot of conflict in the upper tier. I want to see all 4 top billed bands.

    Did you actually read that they canceled? I don't think they were playing Denver in the first place, and they are still on the poster for Chicago.

    Apparently the local residents are trying to get Riot Fest Denver cancelled this year. Seems like it might be prudent to hold off on buying tickets or airfare until they get this resolved. Unfortunately I've already booked airline tickets and am not sure how worried to be about all of this.

    Charles Avery of Byers was one of several people who complained that the festival caused traffic problems and resulted in open drug use among attendees. He said the music at last year's Riot Fest was so loud he had to close his windows.

    "I don't want the traffic and the noise and the nasty things that are sold there," Avery said. "Hold your riot someplace else, and let us Byers residents live in peace and quiet."

    Arnold Hollinsworth, a Byers resident, said traffic generated by the festival kept locals from getting around town and going about their business.

    "You don't have to be a rocket scientist to know that Highway 36 isn't going to be able to handle the congestion from this," he said.

    Any indications what day the Cure might play Chicago? I'm going to see the Replacements in St. Paul the same weekend and would like to work this in.

    They don't seem to have any other tour dates besides the Riot Fest shows, so no. I think Riot Fest is very busy scrambling to secure a new alternate location for the Colorado date, so I wouldn't count on any big information until the dust is settled from that. It is officially not happening at May Farms anymore.

    is this a guess or did they release this somewhere?
