Blink-182, Fall Out Boy And Motörhead Top Absolutely Massive Riot Fest 2013 Lineup

Written by Mike Hohnen on May 16, 2013

Chicago-based punk and alt rock extravaganza Riot Fest has dropped the lineup for its 2013 event, creating a guitar lover’s utopia that will have many of us seeing green. Unless someone out there has a plane that can take us all to Chicago? The 3-day event kicks off 13th September and is bringing together some of the biggest names from the entire history of the scene.

Slotted in as headliners are Blink 182 and Fall Out Boy with Violent Femmes, Motörhead and Rancid also taking up some prime real-estate on the poster. You have to scroll pretty far down before the big names stop appearing. Even the bands in small print still have serious pulling power.

Other classic punk acts to read us the Riot act include Blondie, Bad Brains, the reformed FLAG, Mission of Burma and even old Peter Hook is showing up to play some Joy Division songs. Epic!

AFI will be performing, and their current movements suggest new material will be heard by the lucky crowds. Did we forget to mention Brand New are also receiving a slot? Yep, it truly is a dreamland.

Though it’s not just the lineup that has us envious – the festival also boasts a no-douchebag policy, which must encourage a great vibe, and what’s more tickets are only $23 per day! Unbelievable!
