It feels like just yesterday, we were reading (and writing) about all the money the city of Chicago was going to need to spend to clean up all the damage that Riot Fest Chicago caused at Humboldt Park because of Mother Nature and her bad timing.
Whether or not the festival owed Chicago almost $200,000 in damages is now in the past because festival organizers have revealed the official dates for each of the three festivals, though as of now, there has been no official venue reveal for any of the three cities.
Riot Fest Denver will be the first to happen during the weekend of Aug. 28-30. After that, the original Riot Fest location, Chicago, will have its turn during the weekend of Sept. 11-13. Riot Fest Denver rounds out the almost month-long celebration of all things good music during the weekend of Sept. 19-20.
Tickets for all three festivals are currently available on Riot Fest’s website. Back in November, they allowed fans the change to get “Holiday pre-sales” with prices starting at $89.95.
As of now, like we mentioned before, no official venues have been given and as for the artists, we’re sure they aren’t going to start announcing those for several months. In defense of the festival organizers, last year’s line-ups were INSANE.
