Artist: TOO MANY AMAZING ARTISTS TO NAME (full lineup)
Venue: Humboldt Park
City: Chicago, Illinois
Date: September 13th – 15th, 2013
While cleaning up my computer, I found these oldies and completely forgot to share them with you. Riot Fest is hands down my favorite music festival and I already bought my ticket for next year! Not only is the lineup always diverse, but there is a carnival and there is no pressure to be something you’re not.
Quick sidenote, I also got to meet the security guard who tackled the streaker during Vampire Weekend’s Lolla set. A couple kids in the front row “dared” me to ask him about it and he was such a happy camper when I stealthily brought it up.
This year’s Riot Fest was not only memorable, but an education. I still cannot believe that I got to see Joan Jett, Debbie Harry, Blink 182, AND… THE REPLACEMENTS. WOWZERS. I still get chills thinking about it. You know that girl who was crying during “Left of The Dial”? Yup that was me.
Make sure to get your tickets early because they WILL sell out 2014. I just know it!
