Riot Fest — one of the largest remaining independent festivals in the country — is ready to return to Douglass Park in Chicago, Illinois this fall. The festival has just revealed a jam-packed lineup, spread across three days (September 16–18) and five stages, that is rich in punk, indie rock, hip-hop, goth, industrial and more.

Now in its 17th year, the festival features headlining acts MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE on Friday, MISFITS on Saturday (performing their debut “Walk Among Us”, which turned 40 this year),and NINE INCH NAILS on Sunday. Notable first-timers for Riot Fest 2022 include beloved indie rockers YEAH YEAH YEAHS; the pivotal goth rock group BAUHAUS; a reunited SUNNY DAY REAL ESTATE; as well as first-time sets from PORTUGAL. THE MAN, Yungblud, PLACEBO, Jeff Rosenstock, LUNACHICKS, THE LINDA LINDAS and LUCKY BOYS CONFUSION.

Attendees will also enjoy reunion sets from YELLOWCARD (performing their sole 2022 show at this year’s Riot Fest),THE ACADEMY IS… and MIDTOWN — as well as returning punk heroes like ALKALINE TRIO, BAD RELIGION and DESCENDENTS, hip-hop acts like Ice Cube and Action Bronson, and fest favorites SLEATER-KINNEY, JIMMY EAT WORLD, THE FRONT BOTTOMS and THE WONDER YEARS. Over 85 bands will play across three days and five stages.

Festival founder Mike Petryshyn said: “I think this year’s lineup really speaks to who we are; it’s been a minute since we’ve gotten to curate a lineup like this. I’m especially excited for what this is leading into: the stuff that’s happening in the next few weeks, and the years to come.”

Tickets go on sale today (Wednesday, May 11); one-day, two-day and three-day passes are all available.

Founded in 2005, Riot Fest is an independent music festival featuring the best of punk, rock ‘n’ roll, hip hop, metal, alternative, and just about everything in between. Founder Riot Mike is credited with helping to reunite iconic bands like NAKED RAYGUN, THE REPLACEMENTS, MISFITS and JAWBREAKER, among many other reunions — a staple of Riot Fest, alongside full album performances, carnival rides, and the occasional butter sculpture. Riot Fest is independently owned and curated with quirky, original attractions; in 2016, it was named No. 1 Music Festival by USA Today, and in 2021 it was voted Best Music Festival in a poll for Chicago Reader. In addition to the festival, Riot Fest promotes shows year-round at a myriad of music venues across Chicago.
