Riot Fest 2016 Lineup

Last week, we learned that hell had frozen over: Glenn Danzig will reunite with his original Misfits bandmates Jerry Only and Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein for the first time since 1983. The reunited Misfits will headline Riot Fest, the punk-centric festival that’s coming to both Denver (9/2-4) and Chicago (9/16-18). And today, the festival announces the rest of its lineup, which is both huge and crazy.

As Yahoo reports, the Deftones, Death Cab For Cutie, Nas, and the reunited Ween will also top the bill on both Riot Fests. And in Chicago, Morrissey will also join the bill. The two festivals have fairly divergent lineups, but between the two of them, they’ll feature Sleater-Kinney, Brand New, the Descendents, Refused, NOFX, Tyler, The Creator, the reunited Thursday, the reunited Wolf Parade, the Hold Steady, Yo La Tengo, Vince Staples, Danny Brown, Against Me!, Rob Zombie, Jane’s Addiction, Social Distortion, Bob Mould, Gwar, Fucked Up, and plenty of others. Below, check out the lineup — or at least, the portion of the lineup that’s already been announced — for both festival.
