Riot Fest Adds Pixies, Suicidal Tendencies & More


Riot Fest 2013 is shaping up to be quite a varied festival of excellence, as the Chi-town musical gathering – set for Sept 13-15 in Chicago's Humboldt Park – has just added Pixies, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Suicidal Tendencies, Andrew W.K. and T.S.O.L. to its action-packed three day weekend.

The new additions will take the stage alongside The Replacements, Fall Out Boy, Blink 182, Violent Femmes, Rancid, Blondie, Public Enemy, Rocket From The Crypt, The Dismemberment Plan and a slew of other killer bands. Further additions to Riot Fest Chicago include Hatebreed, Off With Their Heads, The Flatliners, Nativ, Hostage Calm, The Interrupters, New Beat Fund and Pet Symmetry.

It's been a whirlwind of change for the festival in recent weeks, as several bands had to cancel their performances due to unforeseen circumstances, including Motörhead, Bad Brains and Attack Attack!

Look for the daily schedules for all Riot Fests to be announced and single-day tickets to go on sale Wednesday, July 24.

A Ferris wheel, tilt-a-whirl, fire eaters, Lucha Libre and other attractions are also featured at this year's Riot Fest, with lagoons, shade trees and lovely fields providing a beautiful backdrop for the Summer-finale festival.
