Riot Fest Adds Dates in Toronto & Denver, Launch Huge Contest

Posted by - 09:01 AM on 05/22/13
Riot Fest recently announced a stellar lineup for the Sept. 13-15 weekend in Chicago, and today they've announced additional dates in Toronto (August 24-25) and Denver (September 21-22). Like the Chicago weekend, AP.net and the rest of AbsoluteVoices will be media sponsors for Riot Fest Toronto and Denver, and we'll be bringing you the lineups for those dates as soon as they're announced! At the moment, we are teaming up with the festival to offer a prize package that includes two VIP tickets to all three festival weekends (including airfare and hotel accommodations) in addition to a bunch of goodies from the AbsoluteVoices sites! Check out details about everything in the replies.

Amazing. I really hope the lineup rivals the Chicago date, last year's Toronto date was a little weak in comparison.

C'mon, it was decent - can't complain about Hot Water, Descendents and Less Than Jake. I will say this though, Toronto's already buzzing in hopes for Blink and Brand New.

Interested to see what kind of line-ups the other cities get after how stacked Chicago is.

Man, winning this would make 2013 so much brighter. Chicago's line-up is stellar, so I can't imagine the other two are terrible.

Agreed, definitely a solid lineup compared to any other show, I just mean on a "relative" basis there were a ton of bands who dropped out after Chicago. Brand New was here last August for a headliner but as far as I know it's been 2-3 years since Blink were here last. Fingers crossed

Are there more dates? Curious to see I there will be a Dallas return despite low sales due to shitty promotion.
