T-shirts, baseball caps, sweatshirts and posters are played out—the next frontier of festival merchandise is limited edition trading cards. Next weekend at Riot Fest, lucky attendees will be able to walk out of Douglas Park with their very own set of Riot Fest Garbage Pail Kids cards. Created in partnership with Topps, the eight-card series depicts current and past Riot Fest performers who are each given a Garbage Pail Kids makeover, complete with a punny name and some delightfully disgusting artwork.

If you want to get your hands on a pack of cards depicting Andrew W.K.'s nosebleed-prone alter ego "Awesome Andrew" or the Descendents' mascot "Mad Milo," you'll need to line up at the Riot Fest merch tent early. Organizers are stressing that supplies of Riot Fest Garbage Pail Kids cards are very limited, so you'll want to buy a pack (which contains all eight cards) on Friday before the collectors scoop them all up.

Take a look at the full series of cards below and get ready for another exciting festival weekend with our guide to the top acts at Riot Fest.
