We have some news to share today: Due to Mike Patton’s mental health issues, Faith No More and Mr. Bungle can no longer perform at Riot Fest 2021. We’re heartbroken, but Mike’s mental health is of the utmost importance to us—we want to completely respect his decision to cancel all upcoming shows, and we wish him the best.
Thankfully, we have some excellent additions to share. When times get hard, it’s important to lean on the friends who know you best, and for us that’s Rise Against. We’re humbled to welcome them back Saturday—as well as our friends Anthrax on Sunday—for an exciting weekend with all our fans, friends, and family. Tickets are ON SALE NOW.
Below you’ll find updated daily schedules and a festival map. Get all the details and get yourselves ready for an unforgettable weekend September 16–19 in Douglass Park, Chicago.
Sorry, but there won’t be a Riot Fest app this year—so be sure to save this on your phone, along with our map. Phone-sized daily schedules can be found here.
How the heck do I get to Riot Fest? That’s a great question, and I’m glad you asked.

Take a look at our map, save it to your phone, and we’ll see you all this weekend.
