Riot Fest reveals 2014 schedule


    Riot Fest, Chicago’s annual behemoth of a rock festival, is just a week away. Right on queue, organizers have revealed the set times for the three-day event, which runs September 12th – 14th at Humboldt Park.

    Friday features Mastodon, The Murder City Devils, Failure, and Gogol Bordello, along with a panel discussion featuring Pussy Riot Members Nadya Tolokonnikova and Masha Alekhina, Henry Rollins, Bad Religion’s Greg Graffina, and more. The biggest scheduling conflict comes at the end of the night, when Jane’s Addiction, Slayer, and Rise Against all face off as headliners.

    Saturday’s lineup pits headliners The National against Glenn Danzig’s Samhain, which is better than any WWE wrestling match ever. Other performers include Wu-Tang Clan, Descendents, The Flaming Lips, The Get Up Kids, The Afghan Whigs, Buzzcocks, Television, Metric, Paul Weller, and Dashboard Confessional.


    Sunday night, meanwhile, waxes nostalgia with headlining sets from The Cure and Weezer. Earlier in the day, Primus, Patti Smith, Social Distortion, Hot Snakes, Mudhoney, Naked Raygun, Superchunk, and Billy Bragg will all take the stage.

    See the full schedule below, or at Riot Fest’s website, where you can also see the set times for Riot Fest’s Toronto and Denver offshoots.
