Riot Fest 2021 is almost here. Finally. It’s really happening.
Unfortunately, Nine Inch Nails has cancelled all 2021 shows, including this year’s fest. With that, Slipknot will close out the weekend on Sunday, September 19—and for our Thursday Preview Party, Morrissey will perform September 16 and curate some very special guests for the evening!
In addition, all 3-day and Sunday ticket holders will have access to our Thursday Preview Party, free of charge! And to benefit our Chicago community, we’re putting tickets on sale now for Thursday for anyone else who wants to go, with all proceeds going to Chicago Coalition for the Homeless (and other organizations, TBA). Grab those here.
Refunds for Sunday ticket holders, if they choose to not hold onto their ticket and gain Preview Party access, will be available until Monday, August 23 at 11:59 p.m. CST (you can do so here). Stay tuned for more info and announcements, including a second wave of Riot Fest Late Night shows that will be announced this Friday, August 20.
Our fans deserve something amazing and we can’t wait to be together again. We’ve been working around the clock to make 2021 even more special—so that hopefully for one weekend, we can escape the world and find comfort in the music and people we hold dear. We’ll see you all this September.
