Riot Fest Chicago Lineup Details Revealed

(Radio.com) 2014 may be remembered as the year music festivals started to show weakness, as few have been able to stand out in an ever-increasingly crowded field.

Still, of those that have impressed with their lineup, Riot Fest may stand above them all, with a rock lover's dream assortment booked for dates in Denver, Toronto, and Chicago, the latter of which is the crown jewel.

Now, Chicago has announced the daily breakdown for their fest, taking place Sept. 12-14. Opening day on Friday will be anchored by Jane's Addiction, Slayer, The Offspring, Gogol Bordello, Pussy Riot, and Rise Against.

Saturday will boast The National, The Flaming Lips, Wu-Tang Clan, Metric, Taking Back Sunday, and Descendents. Sunday will close things out in style with The Cure, Weezer, Social Distortion, Tegan and Sara, The Hold Steady, Dropkick Murphys, and Primus.
