For a while now, Chicago’s Riot Fest has been the envy of festivals and the holy grail for festival-goers worldwide. In recent years, it's hosted Weezer playing the Blue album in full, breakout sets from Modern Baseball and The Front Bottoms, an original Misfits reunion and, this year, they’ve managed to get the mighty Jawbreaker to reform!
They knock it out of the park year on year, and this weekend is no different. We’re going to be there reviewing the festival for the mag, but until then, the above gallery features our top picks for the weekend as picked by Ryan De Freitas, and below is a playlist to accompany it! You're welcome, internet!
