Riot Fest is an annual three-day concert festival that showcases every facet of rock and punk music. The lineup ranges from the subtle, strung-out rock of indie favorites the Dandy Warhols to the amped-up chaos of Underoath and everything in between. Headliners this year brought in fans young and old with acts like Jane’s Addiction, Ween and the first gig of the Original Misfits in over 30 years. People grabbed onto burning hot metal dividers to be front row for their favorite acts starting at noon on Friday, September 2 and going all the way to 11 p.m. Sunday.
If you skipped Riot Fest this weekend you missed more than an amazing lineup of 80+ bands; you missed the true essence of punk fashion. Luckily for you, we were on scene to capture the hardcore, gutter-punk, sexy and utterly ridiculous aspects of the styles at the three-day festival.
