Riot Fest Announces “The Riot Feast”

Riot Fest have announced they’re opening up a pop-up restaurant called “Riot Feast” for three months in Chicago:

We’re about to find out. We’ve joined forces with the team behind the immensely popular Saved By The Max pop-up diner to open The Riot Feast, a limited-time restaurant and bar in Chicago with Riot Fest-inspired family-style American bites in a turn-of-the-century carnival environment. Located at (1941 W. North Ave, Chicago), The Riot Feast opens on July 8th for a three-month run.


Riot Fest Won’t Return to Denver in 2017

Riot Fest will not be returning to Denver this year:

Denverites looking to attend Riot Fest this year will have to travel to Chicago to see their favorite punk bands.

Organizers say planning efforts for a Denver festival became too difficult after longtime leader Sean McKeough passed away last year.

Denver Riot Fest 2016

As Riot Fest wraps up this year, I have one question: when is it not festival season? I feel as if we’ve transitioned into an era where festivals and big bills are the new trend. I’ve attended and photographed four “festivals” this year alone and Riot Fest was one of the more enjoyable to shoot. The festival was easy and accessible — which isn’t always the case. Below you’ll find images of Thursday, Underoath, Glassjaw, and many more.
