The Fark-Off Huge Riot Fest 2016 Lineup Just Got Even More Fark-Off Huge

Brace for critical levels of FOMO because ‘sif the 2016 instalment of the US Riot Fest wasn’t already batshit cray enough, organisers have added even more incredi-mazing acts to the bill.

ICYMI: The annual rodeo & carnival in Denver and Chicago dropped a truly nutso lineup back in May, featuring the likes of a reunited Misfits and a reunited Ween, together with Death Cab For Cutie, Nas, Deftones and Bad Religion, Motion City Soundtrack performing some of their final shows, Australia’s own Violent Soho and literally truckloads more.

And now, both bills’ ranks have gained even more girth with the addition of The Flaming Lips, 2 Chainz, The motherflippin’ Bronx and Julian Marley, who’ll be performing his father’s Exodus album in full in Chicago.

The Windy City’s lineup is also 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.

While in Denver, Jane’s Addiction will also play Ritual De Lo Habitual in full, while Descendents and Tyler The Creator will also deliver sets.

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 feel free to tempt yourself by running your eyes over the two huge lineups – in full – below.
