Riot Fest was Inaugurated in 2005
Riot Fest began as a multi-venue event in Chicago in 2005. In 2012, the event became an outdoor music festival specializing in rock, punk, alternative rock and hip hop and went on to become one of the largest independently owned music festivals in the US.
The fest was established by Mike Petryshyn and Sean McKeough and is now known for reuniting bands. Over the years, the event has seen reunion performances by Naked Raygun, Wax, Blue Meanies, Articles of Faith, Plow United, the Jesus and Mary Chain, Chiodos, Misfits, Jawbreaker and the Replacements.
Since 2012, the fest has been organized every year barring 2020, which was canceled due to the pandemic, and the lineup set to perform was accommodated in the 2021 festival.
