Blink 182 to Headline 2019 Riot Fest
Next year, Riot Fest will return to celebrate its 15th anniversary. While the lineup is still up in the air, it has been confirmed that Blink 182 will be one of the headliners for the event. The band was forced to cancel their Riot Fest appearance last year due to Travis Barker’s medical issues.
Weezer saved the day last year taking Blink’s headlining slot at the festival. In a nod to Blink, the band performed a cover of “All The Small Things” for fans in attendance. Last year’s Riot Fest featured sets from Beck, Incubus, Dropkick Murphys, Bad Religion, Wolfmother, Pussy Riot, Andrew W.K., GWAR, Bullet for My Valentine, Clutch, Suicidal Tendencies, Fever 333 and more.
Riot Fest will take place in Chicago, Ill. on Sept. 13-15, 2019. Early bird tickets go on sale tomorrow (Dec. 6) for a limited time at $115 here. The price of the three-day pass will increase once the pre-sale tickets sell out.
Riot Fest also released a holiday video announcing the 15th anniversary edition of the fest. Watch the A Christmas Story-themed clip below.
