Blink-182, Slayer + Reunited Bikini Kill Lead 2019 Riot Fest Lineup
If you love those great music moments, Riot Fest has got you covered this year. The 15th anniversary of the Chicago-based music festival will be taking over Douglas Park Sept. 13-15 and the top billed acts should give music festival goers plenty of feels.
You've got Blink-182, who had to miss out on last year's festival due to health issues, making their triumphant return to the stage and making good on last year's promise. There's Slayer, who are in the midst of their farewell tour, who will be playing their final Chicago and Milwaukee area show. And for all the riot grrrl fans out there, Bikini Kill have reunited in 2019 and will be bringing their ferocious set to the stage. Add in The Raconteurs, playing their first Chicago show in 11 years, and hometown heroes Rise Against taking the stage and you've got quite the weekend.
Riot Fest also offers The B-52s' final Chicago show, and full album performances from The Flaming Lips (playing Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots), Ween (taking on The Mollusk), Bloc Party (celebrating the 15th anniversary of Silent Alarm) and the reunited Avail (playing Over the James from start to finish).
