Riot Fest 2022 Announces Complete Lineup – My Chemical Romance, Misfits + Nine Inch Nails Headlining
Riot Fest has just unveiled the complete lineup for the 2022 installment of the long-running event, which will feature headliners My Chemical Romance, Misfits and Nine Inch Nails.
“I think this year’s lineup really speaks to who we are; it’s been a minute since we’ve gotten to curate a lineup like this. I’m especially excited for what this is leading into: the stuff that’s happening in the next few weeks, and the years to come," says festival founder Mike Petryshyn in support of what is sure to be another historic three-day weekend for punk rock fans in Chicago's Douglass Park.
This year's Riot Fest will be held from Sept. 16 through Sept. 18 with other high-profile acts such as Alkaline Trio, Portugal. The Man, Descendents, Bauhaus, Bad Religion, Yungblud, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, GWAR, Ice Cube, Sleater-Kinney and so many others all set to take the stage throughout the weekend.
Reunion sets from Yellowcard, The Academy Is… and Midtown will also take place and, as an added bonus, Misfits will also be performing their entire 1982 album Walk Among Us as part of their headlining performance.
Tickets are on sale now at the Riot Fest website and you can view the full daily lineups directly below.
