Riot Fest Denver- Recap
Riot Fest this year was on another level with its lineup full of heavy hitters. From Friday afternoon to the last act on Sunday night, Riot Fest was nonstop mosh pits, sing-alongs, and random rising clouds from the crowd. It was such a great time seeing such diverse artists from Tyler the Creator to Bad Religion in the same venue; also makes for a rowdy time. And when you thought it couldn’t get any wilder, they bring out a sword swallower with a show in the Circus tent out for extra entertainment.
It seems that every year, the Riot Fest team seeks to out do themselves, getting some of the biggest names, also some old ones, which we never thought we would see again. That’s exactly what they accomplished this year by, after years of trying; they grabbed Misfits after the band hadn’t played in 33 years. The crowd that showed up for their set was one of the largest we’ve ever witnessed at Riot Fest. We witnessed history this past weekend at Riot Fest!
