    I don't know about last year but over the years there have been a few bands who have done Warped and Riot Fest.

    Underoath is playing the Chicago and Denver Riot Fests. They mentioned it at the meet and greet in Orlando

    Makes you wonder what Riot Fest has booked for headliners this year.

    The headliners don't usually do much for me. It'd the undercard that gets me excited.

    Honestly have no assumptions at all about the lineup so I'm really excited/nervous

    Green Day- Working on new music, haven't played shows in awhile. Long shot but possible.
    Husker Du- Rumor mill has been churning on them all year.
    Smashing Pumpkins- Chicago band, never played the fest. This is long overdue.

    I'd be thrilled if these were the three biggest names on the poster this year.

    Others that wouldn't surprise me:

    The Killers- they're doing a handful of fests this year, and they're just about the perfect sized band so headline a medium sized fest.
    The Format- probably wouldn't headline, but I think they're more than ripe for a reunion.
    Band of Horses- New record coming out, super diverse fan base.
    My Chemical Romance- Probably not this year, but definitely within the next three.


    Anyone else have any ideas?

    I honestly can't think of one headliner that I would be excited for this year. Linkin Park, maybe?

    All of those absolutely don't interest me at all and the undercard has been getting a bit more out of my liking of late so I'm feeling more confident in my decision to pass.

    Have heard some rumors of Tool having a headlining slot this year

    That wouldn't interest me at all.

    Screeching Weasel are playing some 30th anniversary dates (some of which they are playing all of My Brain Hurts) but haven't announced a Chicago one yet.

    It's beginning to sound like you shouldn't go, man. You've been a bit of a downer this year.

    Yep, definitely save the money then man. Perfect world- who're your headliners?

    Riot Fest isn't everyone's "favorite time of the year" and that's okay.

    That's fucking awesome.

    - I could definitely see 311, Bush, and Incubus being added to meet the late 90's alt rock radio quota.
    - Talking Heads would be insane.
    - Tsunami Bomb!

    That's pretty cool! I would definitely be okay with that lineup!
