Riot Fest 2018 has already proven to be full of surprises, but the Chicago festival has a few more tricks up their sleeve. Notorious for getting bands to play their classics in their entirety, Riot Fest has finally revealed this year’s full-album performances.
In the past, Riot Fest has featured diverse and stellar full-album performances by Dinosaur Jr., Wu-Tang Clan and Weezer. Riot Fest’s 14th installment will be no different.
