Since 2005, Riot Fest has been us bringing some of the best names in rock‘n’roll, punk, and alternative music, and this year was no different. If you weren’t lucky enough to catch the festival earlier this month in Denver, Colorado, the creators seized another opportunity in Chicago to give lovers of metal, hip-hop, and new wave a second chance to see some of their faves live.
This year’s run which took place on September 16-18 boasted some pretty awesome acts on its lineup like Bleached, Deftones, Fitz and the Tantrums, and High Waisted. Luckily, we were there to experience all the mosh pits, crowd surfing, headbanging, and of course, sick bands that this beloved music festival had to offer.
Check out our photos from the three day fest to witness the mayhem for yourself.
