Say hello to the Riot Fest 2019 lineup! The Chicago-based festival will be celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, and they’ve spared no expense at booking a strong lineup of rock bands that includes Blink-182, Slayer’s final Chicago performance, and a reunited Bikini Kill as headliners. Plenty more excellence in the undercard as well, including The Raconteurs, Rise Against, The Flaming Lips, Jawbreaker, Ween, Bloc Party, Die Antwoord, Patti Smith, Rancid, Violent Femmes, Descendents, The B-52s, Dashboard Confessional, The Struts, Bob Mould, and many more! Obviously the lineup poster is below and you know how to read, so give it a quick look! Tickets are on sale now for a pretty inexpensive $130, but prices will go up over time so the earlier you buy the better. Riot Fest 2019 takes place from September 13-15 in Chicago’s Douglas Park.
Today’s Pick Your Poison might not feature any Riot Fest artists, but there’s still plenty of great music to enjoy. Highlights come from courtship., Tourist, and Trippie Redd, but that’s definitely not all. Journey beyond the jump for songs from Ash Walker (ft. Laville), Bones & Fifty Grand, Curbi, HAN, Hanne Hukkelberg, Johari Noelle, Kemba, Lil Keed (ft. YNW Melly & Lil Uzi Vert), and Theo Bard.
