Riot Fest & Rodeo

The 2016 Riot Fest & Rodeo will be at the National Western Complex from Sept. 2 to 4.

The location provides easy access to public transit and offers acres of parking. Although there won't be an actual rodeo with cowboys and live animals, there will be plenty of Riot Fest activities such as a mechanical bull and a professional pitmaster barbecue cook-off.

Here's a sampling of the stellar lineup:  

The Original Misfits (Reunion), Ween, Death Cab for Cutie, Jane's Addiction, Sleater-Kinney, Nas, Deftones, Fitz & The Tantrums, Descendents, NOFX, Underoath, Bad Religion, Thursday, Tyler, The Creator, Pepper, Jake Bugg, Motion City Soundtrack, Wolf Parade, The Hold Steady, Yo La Tengo, Sleigh Bells, Chevy Metal, The Dandy Warhols, Vince Staples, Suicidal Tendencies, Flatbush Zombies, Hatebreed, Lagwagon, The Aquabats, Glassjaw, The Wonder Years, Me First & The Gimme Gimmes, DANNY BROWN, Against Me!, Meat Puppets, Leftöver Crack, Dan Deacon, Murder By Death, Rogue Wave, Converge, Billy Talent, Lewis Del Mar, Set Your Goals, Juliette Lewis & The Licks and many, many more.  

In 2005, Riot Fest booked a multi-venue weekend of punk and rock in Chicago with bands such as Dead Kennedys, The Misfits, and The Bouncing Souls kicking things off. Since then Riot Fest has expanded, booked more bands, added carnival rides, hosted pie eating contests and provided people with what they demand, a great show!
