Riot Fest Denver Unveil New Location


After Riot Fest Denver was denied their permit to have the festival take place at May Farms, festival organizers have finally revealed the new venue.

The show will now “go on” at the Sports Authority Field at the Mile High Stadium. Though it seems that a stadium would not be the best place to house this event, don’t worry, organizers also felt your pain, especially if you had purchased camping space. 

In a release, Riot Mike wrote, “After much thought about the pros and cons about moving to the stadium versus other venues, the fact that the stadium is willing to allow us to recreate Byers and May Farms swayed our decision.”

If this is your first time hearing about this, last week, Arapahoe County and the city of Byers, CO had denied the festival’s requested permits for the event citing the insanity that comes with having so many attendees in the venue of choice.

The full announcement of the alternate space can be read on their Facebook page and for any questions revolving around the venue, they have provided FAQs about it on their website

All tickets purchased for May Farms will be honored, while those who purchase camping space will be refunded their money. 

The weekend-long festival is slated to take place from September 19 through September 21. Acts, which have been previously announced, will include The Cure, The Used, Taking Back Sunday, Rise Against, Social Distortion, and many more.
