Live Review: Riot Fest 2015 in Chicago
Tens of thousands descended upon Douglas Park last weekend for the 2015 edition of Riot Fest, braving rain and a whole lot of mud to see an absolutely stacked lineup of music ranging from punk to reggae to metal to funk. Despite mucked up shoes and odd logistical issues, Riot Fest was absolutely worth the battle with the elements, or in my case the there-and-right-back journey from Los Angeles.
While our preview of the festival didn’t address headliners (as you know damn well who they are), acts across the spectrum made amazing appearances throughout the weekend. Here are photos from some of our favorite acts, although this hardly does justice to the talent at this weekend’s event.
Dirty Fences, these rockers from NYC started the afternoon off strong
Eagles of Death Metal
Coheed and Cambria
