September’s Riot Fest carnivals and concerts in the central U.S. already featured soup-to-nuts lineups: the reunited Misfits, Wu-Tang Clan members, indie hotness like Dan Deacon and Fucked Up, full album performances by The Hold Steady, Jane’s Addiction, and Rob Zombie, and so much more. Today, organizers announced more ticket sales options and their final lineup additions.
Julian Marley will perform Bob Marley and the Wailers’ Exodus in its entirety at both Riot Fest locations, Denver and Chicago. The Denver dates (September 2–4) now include sets by 2 Chainz, Gogol Bordello, DeVotchKa, and The Lillingtons. The hometown fest in Chicago (September 16–18) now features The Flaming Lips, Sleater-Kinney, The Julie Ruin, The Bronx, and more acts.
Single-day and two-day tickets go on sale for both cities at noon CST (1:00 p.m. EST) today, June 28. Search for them on Ticketfly, or visit Riot Fest’s own sales pages for Denver and Chicago. Updated lineup posters are shown below.
