Riot Fest 2017 has announced its single-day lineups, which included previously-announced headliners Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age and New Order. In addition to the artists already announced, Danzig has been added to the stellar group of performers. Tomorrow, Riot Fest will announce the final two performers, both of whom will be playing full-album performances at the festival. Full weekend tickets are already on sale, and single-day as well as 2-day tickets to Riot Fest will go on sale Friday, 10 am central time. Single-day tickets will start at $69.98, and two-day passes will be $139.98. VIP options are also available. Riot Fest will take place in Chicago's Douglas Park on Sept. 15-17.
Some of this year's selections playing Sunday include a reunion of the punk group Jawbreaker, who will be closing out the festival, Prophets of Rage, and a performance by Paramore, who are in the middle of their first tour in several years. Friday will see Nine Inch Nails, A Day to Remember and New Order all play the same day. The addition of Danzig will come on Saturday, alongside Wu-Tang Clan, a DJ set by Mike D of the Beastie Boys, and Queens of the Stone Age's highly anticipated show.
Several artists on the schedule have already confirmed that they will be playing full albums during their Riot Fest 2017 sets: The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Dinosaur Jr., Fishbone, Built To Spill, Mayday Parade, Bayside, The Lawrence Arms, and that dog, in addition to the two further full-album artists that will be announced tomorrow. If all of the great musical performances aren't enough for you, Riot Fest will also feature its full carnival, complete with rides, games, a freak show, and more. Fans can also enjoy the huge variety of food and beverage vendors that will be present.
