Riot Fest 2022 Lineup Has MCR, NIN, YYYs, SDRE, & Much More

Riot Fest will return to Chicago’s Douglass Park this September 16-18, and the lineup rules. Headliners this year include My Chemical Romance on Friday and Nine Inch Nails on Sunday, both of whom were set to play the fest in recent years but postponed due to COVID. In between on Saturday will be the Original Misfits (the version of the band with Glenn Danzig, Jerry Only, and Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein) performing their debut album Walk Among Us for its 40th anniversary. Those are three great headliners, but the riches extend far beyond the headliner level.

Emo superheroes Sunny Day Real Estate will stage their latest reunion at Riot Fest, playing their first set in 12 years. Other reunion sets include Yellowcard (their sole 2022 show), The Academy Is…, and Midtown. Some more highlights: Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Bauhaus, Jeff Rosenstock, Sleater-Kinney, Ice Cube, Descendents, Yungblud, Bad Religion, Jimmy Eat World, Madball, Action Bronson, 7 Seconds, Cloud Nothings, Alkaline Trio, the Get Up Kids, Portugal. The Man, Placebo, the Linda Lindas, Bully, Jawbox, the Front Bottoms, Bleachers, Rocket From The Crypt, Algiers, the Wonder Years, Less Than Jake, Mannequin Pussy, the Menzingers, THICK, Alice Glass, Chastity… the list goes on. It’s an impressive list.
