(TeamRock) Riot Fest founder Sean McKeough had died at the age of 42. Bosses at the Chicago and Denver-based festival confirmed McKeough's death in a post on the event's website.

McKeough's Riot Fest partner Michael Petryshyn says: "Sean was Riot Fest's pillar of strength. I loved him. I admired him. And to lose him is a lonely and barren feeling.

"I miss my friend immensely. Without Sean and his belief that a little fest could make a positive impact on people's lives by doing things differently and left of the dial, Riot Fest would have never become such an intimate family. here.
