Lollapalooza may be the most recognized music festival to be based out of Chicago, IL, but Riot Fest has definitely become a must-see weekend destination for rock fans as well. The three-day event will feature Chicago’s own Fall Out Boy, punk-pop veterans Blink-182, metal gods Motörhead and more this fall.

Festival organizers revealed the lineup late last night on Riot Fest’s official Facebook page. Joining the headliners are Violent Femmes, Rancid, AFI, Sublime With Rome, Brand New, Pierce the Veil, Taking Back Sunday, Against Me!, The Devil Wears Prada and more artists to be announced at a later date. Check out the first wave of performers below.

Riot Fest takes place September 13-15 at Humboldt Park in Chicago. 3-day passes start at $99.98 and on sale at Ticketfly.com. Apparently the demand for info on Riot Fest has caused their website to crash as of this writing.

What do you think of this year’s Riot Fest lineup? Will you be making a trip to the Windy City this fall? Tell us below.
