Riot Fest set times (Jawbreaker vs Paramore, Cap’n Jazz vs Built to Spill vs Menzingers)

riot-fest-daily

Set times have been revealed for the absolutely stacked 2017 Riot Fest, taking place September 15-17 in Chicago’s Douglas Park. A lineup this loaded is bound to have some tough conflicts, and there are indeed some:

On day one, it’s New Order vs Vic Mensa, Buzzcocks vs Action Bronson vs The Hotelier, and Ministry vs The Cribs. (Ministry are also back to back on the Riot Stage with Nine Inch Nails, so that’s a nice double header of industrial rock.)

On Saturday, headliners Queens of the Stone Age are up against Taking Back Sunday. You also have to choose between At the Drive-In and Wu-Tang Clan playing 36 Chambers (tough!), Gogol Bordello vs Beastie Boy Mike D‘s DJ set, Danzig (performing Danzig III: How the Gods Kill) vs The Lawrence Arms (performing Oh! Calcutta!), and Faith No More/Slayer offshoot Dead Cross vs Shabazz Palaces.

On Sunday, Paramore (fresh off releasing a great new album) overlap with much of Jawbreaker‘s headlining reunion set (and Andrew WK). Dinosaur Jr (performing You’re Living All Over Me) overlap with Best Coast, and there’s the very tough Cap’n Jazz (reunion) vs Built to Spill vs The Menzingers. You also have to pick between Rage Against the Machine/Public Enemy/Cypress Hill supergroup Prophets of Rage and M.I.A., and there’s some overlap between Beach Slang and Downtown Boys‘ worthwhile early sets.

Tickets for Riot Fest are still available. Check out all set times below.
