Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

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?
