Cue The FOMO, Riot Fest’s 2016 Lineups Are Of Epic Proportions

Better apply for leave from work stat and book a trip to the US for September because Riot Fest’s lineups for their 2016 festivals in Denver and Chicago are too massive to miss.

The rock and alt events will be headlined, as previously announced, by a reunited Misfits coming together with their original singer and bassist for the first time in more than three decades. A newly reunited Ween will also play in both cities with a mystery act being teased on the top line of both cities’ lineups.

The full lineup is yet to be completed but it already looks huge with Death Cab For Cutie, Nas, Deftones and Bad Religion playing in both Denver and Chicago. Motion City Soundtrack will also play some of their final shows at the festivals.

In Denver, Jane’s Addiction will play Ritual De Lo Habitual in full, while Sleater-Kinney, Descendents and Tyler The Creator will also deliver sets. The Chicago lineup is stacked with artists playing classic albums in full. Rob Zombie will perform White Zombie’s Astro-Creep: 2000, Social Distortion will run through White Light, White Heat, White Trash and The Hold Steady will perform Boys And Girls In America. Morrissey has also been announced as one of the headliners.

Repping for the Aussies will be Violent Soho who appear on both lineups.

The Denver event will run from 2nd to 4th September while it will go down in Chicago from 16th to 18th September. Tickets are on sale now and you can tempt yourself to cop one by running your eyes over the two huge lineups below.
