Festival & Carnival Chicago
Originating in Chicago, Riot Fest began in 2005 with an amazing punk and rock show which included performers such as Dead Kennedys, The Misfits, and The Bouncing Souls. The attendees of the first Riot Festival were lucky enough to obtain their tickets via the event coordinator’s Myspace page. Since 2005, the Riot Festival has grown in popularity, and in 2012, the popularity of the concert necessitated a move to a larger venue.
