Riot Fest Announces 2021 Initial Lineup

Riot Fest is skipping right over 2020 and already planning to return for 2021. The Chicago-based festival, which takes place in September every year, has announced is initial lineup for next year. It’ll retain the My Chemical Romance reunion, which was announced back in January (they just revealed a new 2021 itinerary), and it’ll also have performances from the Smashing Pumpkins, Run The Jewels, Pixies, Lupe Fiasco (performing The Cool in full), Vic Mensa, Les Savy Fav, Best Coast, L7, PUP, Big Freedia, Alex G, Thursday, Fucked Up, White Lung, and more.

Refunds are available to those who already bought tickets for the 2020 iteration — details here — though those who hold on to their tickets, or buy tickets for the 2021 festival in the next 30 days, will gain admission to an exclusive Thursday Preview Party for early ticketholders that will feature a secret lineup.
