Aha! Riot Fest Chicago is upon us, and it is impossible to deny just how perfect this weekend should be. As a fourth-time fest-goer and local Chicagoan, I've found few weekends in this city that compare to this one. Not only do I get to see a plethora of my favorite bands, I get to hang out in the stellar September weather, have quality time with friends and get much needed exercise. And while there are very few drawbacks to Riot Fest, there is one glaring issue: How to successfully navigate the weekend. With such an incredible lineup of bands, it's easy to forget that there are smaller, up and coming bands playing the festival too, and a good deal of them are worth checking out.
I won't lie, I had never heard of some of these bands before see this years Riot Fest lineup. But, after detailed research I actually ended up finding some new favorites, and the hope is that after going through this you will too. There are a few lulls in the schedule each day, but a lot of the bands on this list fill those voids.
