Red Bull Riot Fest 2011 Announces Largest Line-up Ever Chicago October 5-9

Since 2005, Riot Fest has outdone itself year after year, presenting the best bands from every genre under the umbrella of rock and punk, with epic reunions being a hallmark of the festival. In 2011, Red Bull Riot Fest steps up the game to a new level: killer headliners abound, from Weezer and the Descendents to Social Distortion and X (playing their iconic Los Angeles album in its entirety).

“The final headliner announcement is very special for me personally, and almost needless to say, it’s something that I never thought would happen. We thought that this deserves its very own separate announcement and I’m happy to say that we’ll be doing it with a few close friends that you might know this upcoming Friday,” said Michael A. Petryshyn, founder of Riot Fest.

Thus far, Red Bull Riot Fest has announced: Weezer * Social Distortion * Descendents * X (play “Los Angeles”) * Youth of Today * Suicide Machines * ALL (Scott, Chad and Dave) * Helmet * D Generation * Down By Law * The Business * Strike Anywhere * The Tossers * Macabre* Nachtmystium * The Flatliners * Flatfoot 56 * The Menzingers * Banner Pilot * The Pavers * Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band * Shot Baker * The Copyrights* Cheap Girls * Larry and His Flask * Chines Telephones * The Crombies * The Holy Mess * Van Buren Boys * Neutron Bombs * The Infected AND MANY MORE WILL BE ANNOUNCED THROUGHOUT THE WEEK…
