Last year’s move to the National Western Complex gave the festival elbow room to spare, despite losing some creature comforts, like grass to sit on between sets. That loss though was overcome by a blistering lineup that churned through act after act with Swiss precision. Except for Snoop Dogg, sets started and ended on time, allowing the promoter to present nearly 100 acts. While Riot Fest ironically uses the phrase “Riot Fest Sucks” as their promotional punchline, things that do not suck include Riot Fest’s FAQ page and its list of items that are banned from the event, which includes Donald Trump and Justin Bieber, crying and selfie sticks.
- You’re going there to see: The original Misfits reunite.
- You’re going to come home talking about: The full lineup will be announced in mid-May.
