Howl’s Top Shows: Riot Fest

March 15, 2024

Book a Party

Throughout every summer, Chicago becomes home base for some of the most exciting music festivals in the country. Coming at the tail end of the celebration is the legendary Riot Fest, a 3-day festival first formed in Chicago’s clubs in 2005. The festival has been home to some of the finest rock and punk groups, both on a national and local level, and has since expanded to include musicians from within the pop, indie and metal realms. Though occasionally expanding into other cities, Riot Fest is without a doubt a product of Chicago’s thrilling music scene, and the  announcement of the first-wave of bands and artists performing at 2024’s festival will arrive in Spring of 2024, but there is a piece of big news: Slayer is reuniting and will be playing their exclusive Midwest performance at Riot Fest in 2024. More information will be provided in the springtime.
