It's never too early to start planning your music festival itinerary, especially if you're going to attend Riot Fest when it returns to Chicago September 14–16, 2018. If you're dead-set on seeing which unexpected act decides to reunite next fall, you're in luck—early bird pre-sale tickets for the annual celebration of punk, rock and hip-hop go on sale Wednesday, November 22 at 10am via Riot Fest's website.

Just in time for the holiday season, Riot Fest will be selling a limited number of general admission three-day passes as well as VIP, deluxe VIP and ultimate VIP tickets. Pricing hasn't yet been announced, but traditionally this sale offers some of the best deals on passes. Plus, they're easy to stuff into a stocking.

Speaking of gifts, Riot Fest is embracing the spirit of the season with a pair of seasonal shirts that will allow you to show off your taste in music and your acknowledgment of the holidays. They're both available via the Riot Fest store and there are only 297 more days until you can wear one of 'em in a field while watching GWAR.
