    Anyone else going to this? I'll be driving from Salt Lake for the second year.

    I'm planning to go! I went to Riot Fest Chicago in 2013 and 2014, then skipped last year. Haven't been to Riot Fest Denver yet so I'm excited.

    With recent local changes in Riot Fest’s partnership in Toronto, the planning process and resources required in staging a fest in Ontario was no longer compatible because of the available timeline. While Riot Fest has fallen in love with Toronto and the province of Ontario because of all of the great music fans who have welcomed and supported us in these last few years, Riot Fest 2016 will only take place in Denver and Chicago. We have every hope that we'll be back in Toronto in the near future, and, in the meantime, we'll begin announcing the lineups for Denver (Sept. 2-4) and Chicago (Sept. 16-18) shortly.

    Question for people who have been before: I'm flying in - is it easy enough to get around the area or should I rent a car? Probably going to check out airbnb options for a place to stay.

    The Denver airport is surprisingly far from the downtown area, so I'd either rent a car or use Uber.

    I'm assuming since the Misfits poster says Riot Fest & Rodeo that it will be at the National Western Stock Show Complex again, like last year. I haven't been to any of the three previous Denver Riot Fests, the lineups for the last two didn't really catch me, and the first year the lineup was pretty solid but the weather and the distance made me back out at the last minute.

    Which hint? American Jesus has to be Bad Religion.

    This cannot continue Supporter

    Is it possible to say "They said it would never happen" when the band were the ones who said it would never happen?

    I was sorta kidding with that one. I definitely think Bad Religion, though.

    The flies are Deftones, people are saying the liberty bell is Ween, not sure what the diving is, definitely Bad Religion, people are saying the possum is Toadies, and the shoplifting is Jane's Addiction

    There are several bands I'm really excited to see, but I gotta say I'm a little bummed to be missing so many good bands who are playing Chicago only

    Why do you say that? I'm in my car and haven't compared lineups yet.

    to be fair i posted that before i saw the whole lineup, just the abridged ones. the lower levels are better for chicago. midlevel denver wins though
