We’re ecstatic to announce the expansion of Riot Fest into Dallas, Brooklyn, Philadelphia and Toronto this morning. We’ve been working diligently over the last few months to get all this new stuff just perfect and we believe we’ve gotten there. This is going to be our busiest and best summer yet.
First up is the return of Riot Fest to Philadelphia on July 19 at Festival Pier at Penn’s Landing. We’ll be bringing Refused, The Promise Ring, Off!, Gameface, Boysetsfire and Hirs there for a massive day of tunes and cheesesteak sandwiches. Tickets are on sale now!
After that is Riot Fest Brooklyn, going down September 8 in Williamsburg Park with Gogol Bordello, Descendents, Hot Water Music, The Bronx, Screaming Females, The Menzingers and Larry and His Flask. Tickets for that go on sale soon and when they do you can head to the Best Buy Theater and Sound Fix Records to get them without service fees.
Next up is our first international Riot Fest, happening September 9 in beautiful Toronto, Ontario, Canada. We’re super excited to bring the Descendents, NOFX, Fucked Up, Hot Water Music, Andrew WK, Less Than Jake, The Lawrence Arms, Mockingbird Wish Me Luck, Organ Thieves and Junior Battles to the Fort York: Garrison Commons for a raging day of music.
Finally, we have our entry into the South with Riot Fest Dallas. On September 22 you’re going to want to be at the Gexa Energy Pavilion to see Rise Against, Descendents, NOFX, The Gaslight Anthem, Andrew WK, Less Than Jake, The Sword, Municipal Waste, Teenage Bottlerocket, Off With Their Heads, Messengers, The News Can Wait, Fever Dreamer, Mouth Of The South, The American Heist, Venomous Maximus, Not In The Face. Then we’ll all go out for some great Texas BBQ and everyone will be satiated.
More information on the lineups, tickets, venues and partners for each city can be found on their individual menu pages, so click around and have some fun. We can’t wait to meet up with old friends and come across new ones across the continent over the next few months.
