Riot Fest 2023: Foo Fighters, The Postal Service, The Cure Among Headliners

Douglass Park in September for the annual music festival

Coming again to Chicago, Illinois this year is another incredible line up at 2023 Riot Fest. This can’t miss festival takes place on September 15th – 17th at Douglass Park, and features headliners such as The Cure, The Postal Service, Foo Fighters, and more!

There are an expected 100+ bands to play at this festival, so while you may go to enjoy your favorites, odds are you might experience a new favorite at an earlier time slot on stage! With three days of nothing but incredible music, though, it’s tough to imagine that you’d hear much you didn’t enjoy.

Full line up is below! Make sure you get to for full rules, schedules, maps, vendor information, tickets, and more. Who are you the most excited to see? Let us know in the comments, and hopefully we’ll see ya there!
