Time Out says
It's the social event of the season for anyone with a denim jacket covered in patches hanging in their closet. Riot Fest brings a lineup of rock, hip-hop and punk acts to Douglas Park for a three-day carnival of music (there's even a Ferris wheel), where attendees can eat corn dogs and enjoy some of the final gasps of warm summer weather. This year, Blink-182, Slayer, Bikini Kill, the Raconteurs and Rise Against headline the festival, joined by acts like the Flaming Lips, Jawbreaker, Ween, Patti Smith and the Wu-Tang Clan. It also happens to be Riot Fest's 15th anniversary, so maybe there will be cake?
