The best fest.

Riot Fest: Where else can you listen to Dinosaur Jr play live while waiting in line for the Ferris Wheel?
Had you asked me ten years ago if Riot Fest would grow into my favorite Chicago festival I'm sure my response would have been a blank look of disbelief. But here we are ten years later and it has grown into my favorite Chicago festival. There are lots of reasons behind this, but I think the biggest one is how proud I am that a truly independent and still DIY organization would build something this big out of love for music and the neighborhood they live in (because I do think those things are intertwined).

Here's a video recap of last year to get you stoked. This year's line-up is going to be announced tomorrow.
