Do you love mindlessly scrolling through content? Do you stare at your phone to distract you from awkward social situations? Do you like pooping and looking at your phone? What about wasting time at work to stick it to your boss? If you said yes to any of those questions, our latest app update will feed that craving.
Sitting on the train, between meetings, ignoring your loved ones, or really any time you get that urge to look down at your phone, you can now head to Riot Fest TV on the Riot Fest app! We’ve curated thousands of hours of awesome content. It’s kind of like MTV in the old days (but better because it’s us)!

Download The App + Tap The RFTV button
We’ve got 10 channels for you to scroll through. This includes Riot Fest 2023 artist music videos, live shows by some of our favorite artists, cartoons, old TV shows, classic commercials, movie clips (including a feature-length Shrek re-told fan-created masterpiece), local Chicago band music videos, Riot Fest TikToks, music videos for artists with upcoming shows with Riot Fest Presents and, of course, some really weird shit.
Check it out now by hitting that middle tab button on the Riot Fest app and you’re watching Riot Fest Sucks Network!
The controls are simple. You can change the channel by swiping up or down (or clicking the arrows on the right).
Even better, if you get to something you hate (ouch), you can skip it! Just swipe right or hit the skip button. Double-tap to see the video’s artist, and click the YouTube button or long-press to watch the video on YouTube. (This entire thing is powered by YouTube)
And, for those shameful few of you who have yet to download our app, you can do so below, for free, on iOS and Android.
RFTV Curated Content
Calling back to the original MTV era, we’ve queued up hundreds, maybe even thousands of music videos on RFTV. This includes visuals from musicians on the Riot Fest lineup, Chicago-based artists, bands playing upcoming shows and more. Check out music videos from Queens of the Stone Age, Death Cab For Cutie, The Gaslight Anthem, AFI, Turnstile and many others.
Commercials just aren’t what they used to be (smh). But, lucky for you, we’ve gathered all of our favorite nostalgic ads for RFTV. This includes the 90s Cocoa Puffs cereal factories video, the bubble tape commercial, Crest’s classic ‘sparkle mania’ ad and more.
Of course, RFTV wouldn’t be complete without some random shit. Riot Fest TikToks, funky cartoons and just about every strange video we’ve enjoyed on the internet recently are loaded on RFTV. Turn off your brain and turn on the firehose of random shit tube coming at you whenever you’re in that next awkward social situation.
