Riot Fest is almost here, so you better be ready to rock out! Riot Fest is Chicago’s biggest festival for rock, punk, alternative rock, and hip hop. This festival is three days full of intense jams; from September 13th to September 15th at Douglass Park in Chicago. Be sure to bring some aspirin for your head banging headache.
There are going to be hundreds of performers going on stage and singing their hearts out. For full information about you can check out Riot Fest’s website for the complete schedule. You can expect such artists as the classic Slayer, the return of Blink 182, the fresh rock of Jawbreaker, and the rebellious punk rock of Rise Against. While it might seem like all these different genres are at odds, they are all coming together for this massive party.
As with any Chicago festival, the tickets are going fast. For a limited time, you can get a single day pass for $50. You can also get the 3-day general admission for $150. You could also go for the VIP pass which covers all days plus 5 drink tickets, lockers, VIP lounge and bar, and re-entry access. Serious rockers can go one step further with the Deluxe package, which includes the VIP but with open bar, complimentary snacks, free WIFI personal guest services, and a more exclusive lounge with plush seating. This will set you back $700. However, if you are the ultimate Rockstar you can choose to go all the way with the Ultimate Package for $1500. This includes everything plus unlimited access to the cabana with your own bartender and patio. Ultimate members also get gourmet food, a concierge service, private restrooms, and an unobstructed view of the Riot Stage.
Riot Fest coming fast, and it’s going to hit hard. Don’t miss out on this event.
