The Misfits, Nine Inch Nails, MCR and More Announced for Riot Fest 2022

0

At this point, Riot Fest is one of those must-attend events in the rock year. In case you forgot, it was at this festival that the original Misfits, with Glenn Danzig on vocals, blew everyone’s fucking minds by returning to the stage. Now, the festival has announced its 2022 line-up, and damn if it isn’t packed with a lot of pretty cool bands (and, in all fairness, a lot of shitty ones, too).

Riot Fest 2022 goes down from Friday, 9/16, to Sunday, 19/18, at Douglass Park in Chicago, IL. The big events for each day are headliners My Chemical Romance, the original Misfits — who’ll be performing all of Walk Among Us — and Nine Inch Nails. Otherwise, the focus seems to be pretty heavy on pop-punk, ska, and indie rock, which, hey, is what’s popping right now.

Check out the full line-up below. Tickets are available via the festival’s website.
