Riot Fest music festival

Once a music festival catering to punks, Riot Fest has grown into the second biggest rock & roll event of the Chicago summer. Check out headliners, photos and more.

North Coast Music Festival bills itself as Summer's Last Stand, but that is not technically true. The Riot Fest music festival heads outside for its annual celebration (now in its 11th year) on September 11–13, 2015. This year, the festival leaves Humboldt Park and takes up residence in Douglas Park. In a short time, Riot Fest has overtaken Pitchfork Music Festival for the title of second biggest gig in town, and it's starting to give Lollapalooza a run for its money. No Doubt, Modest Mouse, System of a Down, Snoop Dogg and Motörhead top this year's expansive bill. Check out the full lineup and photos from past fests in our comprehensive guide.
