Riot Fest updates – here are your options

Dear ticket holder,

As you may already know, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Riot Fest is moving to September 17-19, 2021. We’re heartbroken, but this decision is in the best interest of everyone’s health and safety—and we know it’s going to be worth the wait come next September.

We hope you plan to join us in 2021. If you choose to hang on to your 2020 ticket, it will automatically roll over to 2021, and you’ll get admission to an exclusive Thursday Preview Party (more information below) free of charge! If this sounds good to you, then please click “I’ll keep my ticket” below.

Now for some Good News!

The Riot Fest 2021 First Wave Lineup has been announced! Don’t worry, My Chemical Romance is still headlining—and they’ll be joined by a slew of other amazing bands, like The Smashing Pumpkins, Run the Jewels, Pixies, Coheed and Cambria, Taking Back Sunday, Sublime with Rome, Dirty Heads, Lupe Fiasco, Vic Mensa, The All-American Rejects, New Found Glory, and many more.

Even better, we are introducing the first-ever Preview Party on Thursday, Sept 16, 2021, as a special THANK YOU to fans who keep their 2020 ticket. The Preview Party boasts super-secret sets from mystery bands, bucket-list performances, first dibs on merch, carnival rides, delicious food vendors, major bragging rights, and more! It's only available to people who purchase(d) a ticket before July 16, 2020. Additional information is available here.

If you cannot attend in 2021, perhaps consider transferring your ticket to a friend (option available through July 16, 2020, via your Eventbrite account). As always, we appreciate your support tremendously. Riot Fest would not be possible without YOU. We are very much looking forward to next year and can't wait to unveil all the surprises we have in store. If you're able to keep your ticket, all you have to do is exit out of this window or click “I’ll keep my ticket” below and we'll see you next September.

Otherwise, please kindly review your options below. Refunds on RF 2020 tickets (i.e. tickets purchased before June 16 @ 3:00pm CT) are available until July 16, 2020. We've tried to make it as easy on you as possible, but do let us know (at [email protected]) if you have any questions. And be sure to check out our FAQs page.
