Riot Fest 2013 Updated: Pixies, Joan Jett, Andrew WK, Hatebreed


Riot Fest Chicago (September 13-15, 2013), which already boasted a stellar lineup featuring the return of The Replacements, has upped the buzz factor even higher with the latest additions. Pixies, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Suicidal Tendencies, Andrew W.K., Hatebreed, T.S.O.L., Off With Their Heads, The Flatliners, Nativ, Hostage Calm, The Interrupters, New Beat Fund, and Pet Symmetry have been added to already stacked lineup.

That’s the good news. The bad news is that Motorhead, Bad Brains, and Attack Attack! have cancelled. Still, we’re sure you can make do with Blink 182, Violet Femmes, Rancid, Public Enemy, Guided By Voices, and Bad Religion.

Three day passes to the Chicago show have sold out. No word yet if there will be single day tickets available for purchase.
