In April we learned that Nine Inch Nails, Jawbreaker and Queens of the Stone Age will be headlining the 2017 edition of Riot Fest, but organizers promised that even more bands would be added to the lineup. Today, festival organizers revealed another round of acts playing Douglas Park in September, including reunited hardcore punks At the Drive-In, local emo act Cap'n Jazz (who will also play at House of Vans this summer) and indie rock duo Best Coast.
