Sure, it’s not even April yet, but the organizers behind Riot Fest are already getting a jump on the festivities, which run October 6th-9th in Chicago, IL. What’s the big announcement? The Descendents will headline the fest on October 8th.
Signing the band is an especially big nab for the festival promoters, who have reportedly been trying to get the legends to play the festival for several years. Most recently, the outfit reunited for the first time in a decade to replace Devo during last year’s Fun Fun Fun Fest. Before Riot Fest, however, the band will be playing an April 7th show in Long Beach, CA with Rise Against and Bad Religion.
As always, stay tuned for more festival news and updates as they’re announced.
