Music Monday Playlist: Riot Fest Chicago 2014
Riot Fest Chicago 2013 via the festival
Chicago, Illinois -- We've been counting down the days until Riot Fest since their first lineup announcement back in May. It's the most comprehensive yet curated lineup of the year when it comes to punk and rock, both up-and-coming and established.
Riot Fest takes place in three locations this year, but we dedicated this playlist to Chicago for 3 reasons: 1. it's the original home of the festival and is celebrating its 10th anniversary, 2. it has the largest lineup of the 3 stops, and 3. it's the edition we'll personally be attending.
Our playlist has at least 3 tracks from everyone on the lineup, from headliners The Cure, Jane's Addiction, The National, and Rise Against to acts on the bottom half of the lineup poster Chumped, Dads, Cerebral Ballzy, Skaters, Radkey, and The Hotelier. We've also taken into account Riot Fest's "10 Years. 10 Essential Albums" anniversary celebration. That means all the tracks we've selected from Jane's Addiction, The Offspring, Weezer, Slayer, Samhain, NOFX, Descendents, Naked Raygun, and The Get Up Kids are from the albums they'll be playing in full at the festival.
