First Wave of 2018 Riot Fest Lineup Announced

Screw your middle of the day concert lineup announcements! Riot Fest waited until 8 PM local time to released the first half of this year’s lineup, and it’s definitely a solid one. In addition to the punk rock mainstays (including Milwaukee’s Direct Hit!) this year has a bit of a early new wave feel to it as well, with acts like Blondie, Elvis Costello, and Gary Numan descending on Douglas Park in Chicago. Also, Jerry Lee Lewis is playing, and that’s punk if we’ve ever seen it. Check out the full lineup below, and visit for tickets.
