Details of Riot Fest and the Ticket Luck value
The ultimate punk, rock and alternate music fiesta is now entering its thirteenth year. Prepare for some heavy foot thumping beats and get your Riot Fest tickets today. Riot Fest is all about music beats, with added excitement of some buzzed-about reunions, popular punk pioneers and special appearances by icons of music, all in a live but larger than life setting.
Riot Fest began in Chicago in 2005, as a DIY show, with cheap ticket prices, mainly for the fans of underground music. Rock, Indie, Punk, Psycobilly, Skate punk, Alternative and SKA have all been, and still are a part of Riot Fest. In addition to this amazing amalgamation of so many music genres catering to so many diverse tastes, Riot Fest has a specialty of bringing together influential bands that are no longer unified. The organizer of the event, Riot Mike, seems to have a knack of reuniting such bands, much to the delight of fans.
This year’s reunion highlight is “The Replacements”. They will be coming together after decades. Although, in 2012, the singer Paul Westerberg and the bassist Tommy Stinson recorded a covers EP “Songs for Slim”, as a charity purpose, their previous performance in an actual concert was in July 1991. Despite being off the main scene for so long, The Replacements still have a dedicated following and it seems to grow with time rather than diminish. Now that they are finally going to perform live again, for many it is a dream come true. Get your Riot Fest tickets and witness the spectacular performance of this eighties’ band.
In addition to The Replacements, there are almost 68 other bands in the line-up for the three day festival. Included in them are Violent Femmes, Fall Out Boy, Motorhead, Blondie, Public Enemy, Guided By Voices, Iggy and the Stooges, Blink 182, Sublime with Rome, The Lawrence Arms, Smoking Popes, The Dear Hunter and many more. For all the rock and alternative fans, this will be a wonderful eve, so do not miss out on the opportunity of being a part of such an outstanding extravaganza.
Riot Fest has grown with time, and so has its audience, and now it has become too huge for any indoor venue to handle. As an outdoor festival since last two years, it not only enables easy provision of space, but it also allows the attendees to enjoy the weather along with amazing music beats. This event has a sort of nostalgic vibe, with much concentration of eighties and nineties bands, but at the same time contemporary music is an important chunk of the line up as well. Alternative and punk music constitutes the major part of this musical affair.
The performances also touch upon Pop, Rap, Lollapoza and Hip-Hop, but the highlight of the show still remain the hard rock beats, alternative and punk music. The line-up of performances is very rich for the fest this year. There are some local bands performing as well as some internationally acclaimed stars. Audiences can safely expect this fest to be a brilliant experience.
As if the rock music blowout was not enough to make this fest a must-not-miss, this year Riot Fest will also bring a whole circus performance and a carnival feel along with it. A Ferris wheel, a Yoyo and a Tilt-a-Whirl will add the vigor to the celebration along with darts and balloons to give an entire celebratory sense. The fun part will be just like a state fair, only better due to wonderful music beats and performances, by some of the extraordinary pioneers as well as novices of rock and alternative music.
Like any good music carnival, Riot Fest also has the youthful spirit attached to it. Spectacular performances, amazing music beats and dancing audiences give the entire arena a fun filled energetic vibe. Having legions of people around you in a concert gives an entirely different feel to the music rather than listening to the same music at home or in your car. So get your Riot Fest tickets today, and join with the crowds in celebrating punk, alternative and rock beats.
