Riot Fest, the annual music festival, has announced a nearly complete lineup for all three of its locations. This year, Riot Fest will take place in Toronto from September 6-7, Chicago September 12-14, and Denver September 19-21. Bands included in the announced lineup include a reunited Samhain, The Cure, The Flaming Lips, Ex-Friends, Restorations, Pup, Slayer, Descendents and many, many more. Notice that Nadya Tolokonnikova and Masha Alekhina of Pussy Riot are slated to perform as well. The Bouncing Souls and Marky Ramone are scheduled to play together. Further, somehow GWAR is listed as playing despite the passing of frontman Dave Brockie. There are still a few "surprise" spots left for bands that have not been announced at the Denver dates.
