Your Ultimate Riot Fest Guide

By  | 

Riot Fest Chicago is nearing, and we couldn’t be more excited. The lineup makes it extremely hard to chose who to see when, but never fear- we give you the must sees and dos at the festival!


1. Attend at least one Riot Fest After Party (My favorite pick is The Academy Is because, THEY’RE BACK!)

2. Ride the rides- it’s fun, be a kid!

3. Check out the Riot Fest Speaks, it has some amazingly talented people speaking!

4. Drink water, lots!

5. Go see No Doubt at 8:45 on Friday. Just do it.

6. Prepare for rain, and mud.

7. Bring a cell phone battery, it’s a park so you can’t bring a charger.

8. Follow @RiotFest on Twitter for the latest updates to the festival and any changes!

9. SLEEP a lot nightly so you can go hard the next day.

10. Be safe out there kids, and take pictures!
