    I think this is the least excited about Riot Fest I have been since I started going back in 2012.

    Even the remote possibility that Thursday will be playing means it's the most excited I've ever been.

    1. I am not expecting the lineup to be great.
    2. I am going to Bled Fest, Rock On The Range, Chicago Open Air, and two Warped Tour dates.
    3. I expect the weather to be crappy like it has been every other year.
    4. And I have a feeling Riot Fest will be the Chicago date for blink/ADTR and I would prefer to see them outside of Riot Fest.

    And because my friends bailed on me last year! They're both Packers fans and stayed home and watched the Bears/Packers game instead.

    That sucks, I bought my tickets when they went on sale. I'm holding my hopes really high for Saves The Day t play SWYA and an MCR reunion even though that's rumored for S&S

    I have my 3-day pass too! For $100 it's still a bargain even if I don't go all three days.

    Yeah definitely. At this point I've decided I'm probably going to go every year

    Didn't grab early bird tickets, but Craigslist came in clutch last year so I'll probably just end up doing the same.

    Here is the Denver lineup! I guess we can expect a similar one for Chicago. >-p

    I remember seeing them a few years ago. It's cool to see they're starting to generate some.....buzz.

    I'm sorry.

    baseball is here, which means spring is here, which means the lineup is almost here, which means something I guess.

    Streetlight is playing in Boston on 9/17 and they have a show in Chicago next month. I would assume they are out.

    No Chicago date and they have no shows during Riot Fest weekend. I bet they play Riot Fest.

    Gonna do backflips during "American Hearts." Piebald is a band I really thought I'd never see live.

    Riot Fest is putting on their May show so that wouldn't eliminate them but the Boston show makes them seem very unlikely.
