“We may not be the prettiest festival, but we’ll totally sleep with you on the first date.”
Riot Fest is back and we want you to go! The punk rock festival originated in Chicago nine years ago and has expanded to various cities since. 2013 brings Riot Fest & Travelling Exposition to Denver, Toronto, and Chicago.
First up, Toronto!
Riot Fest Toronto kicks off on Saturday, August 24th with performances by Real Friends, Structures, The Ghost Inside, Grade, Mayday Parade, Every Time I Die, Pierce The Veil and A Day To Remember. The two-day festival continues on Sunday, August 25th with Toronto’s own The Flatliners, who are set to release their brand new album Dead Language through Fat Wreck Chords on September 17th.
Sunday’s line up continues with performances by Single Mothers, Best Coast, Dinosaur Jr., Rocket From The Crypt, The Weakerthans, Iggy and The Stooges, and the highly anticipated reunion of… THE REPLACEMENTS!
