We're going to see ???????? on every lineup poster for the next few years now, aren't we?

8 stages, too many bands, conflicting/overlapping times, and not worth it at the end of the day when you get to see a handful of the 30 bands you wanna see.

Chicago's murder rate is psyched

not metal or hardcore in any ways, why does lamb goat post this?

anonymous 5/31/2018 6:24:08 AM

we went last year, def not worth it. the bands overlap each other, the lines to get drinks, merchandise, etc took forever and its in the Chi town hood. Be warned. When they say Riot Fest sucks, I know thats their gimmick, but it really sucks, not in a gimmick way. Seems like they just don't care.

Women with fat upper arms and dudes who make having a mustache and liking craft beer their personality are stoked

anonymous 5/31/2018 1:41:33 PM

I can't wait to not go to this show...

anonymous 5/31/2018 4:55:47 PM

Such a better lineup than all of the 2018 hardcore / metal fests so far. Is that a nod to this fest, or a slight to hardcore fests? You decide

anonymous 5/31/2018 5:13:38 PM

No Turnstile, Code Orange, or Power Trip the only three big bands in hardcore today (LOL they all suck ass)? I'm shocked. No Los Crudos either (they'd play if offered for all their DIY bullshit.)
