Riot Fest 2018 - Sunday
Riot Fest 2018 (more by James Richards IV)

Riot Fest comes to Chicago, IL’s Douglas Park on September 13-15 for its 2019 edition, and set times for the weekend have been announced. As usual, there are some tough conflicts. On Friday, two ’90s-era punk bands that have headlined Riot Fest in the past, Jawbreaker (who began their reunion at Riot Fest 2017) and blink-182 (who are playing Enema of the State in full for its 20th anniversary) are up against each other to wrap up the day. Which one do you pick?! Right before that, The Flaming Lips (performing Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots), Rancid, Glassjaw (performing Worship & Tribute), and Descendents all partially overlap.

On Saturday, thrash legends Slayer wrap up the day with their last-ever Chicago/Milwaukee show at the same time that Bloc Party perform their classic debut Silent Alarm in full. Other Saturday conflicts include the back-in-action AVAIL (performing Over the James) vs Cursive vs ska vets The Selecter (performing Too Much Pressure), Rise Against vs Manchester Orchestra vs Wu-Tang Clan vs Andrew W.K..

And on Sunday, reunited riot grrrl pioneers Bikini Kill headline at the same time as emo vets Taking Back Sunday, who will be performing two classic albums (Louder Now and Tell All Your Friends) in full. Other Sunday conflicts include reunited shoegazers Ride vs ska-punks Less Than Jake, Against Me! (performing Reinventing Axl Rose and Transgender Dysphoria Blues) vs Guided by Voices, Bob Mould vs American Football vs The B-52s, and The Raconteurs vs Ween (performing The Mollusk).
