riot fest crowd surf 2018

In less than one month, Riot Fest fans will descend upon Douglas Park in Chicago. With late-night shows already announced and the daily lineup revealed, the only thing left was set times.

The festival delivered today in the most Riot Fest way possible: beer. While you’ll be able to check out the schedule online as normal, the festival will also be selling limited cans wrapped with all of the set times.

Created by Goose Island Brewing, the Riot Fest Sucks Pale Ale sports an orange sleeve with both logos. However, when unwrapped from the can, the full lineup and all of the set times await inside.

As for the actual beer itself, it’s a light amber-colored American Pale Ale described as having “a crisp, balanced hop aroma, citrus flavor, and notes of lightly toasted malt” The cans will be sold in limited quantities, so act fast come festival weekend.

 

Riot Fest unveiled its 15th anniversary full lineup back in May. Last September, blink-182 canceled several upcoming shows including their headlining set at Riot Fest Chicago. At the time, the band cited medical issues with drummer Travis Barker who wasn’t being cleared by his doctor for the upcoming dates.

Weezer, Run The Jewels and Taking Back Sunday replaced the band at the festival with Weezer even performing a blink classic in their absence. The trio announced plans to return to the festival in 2019, and those plans were officially confirmed along with playing Enema Of The State in full.
