Riot Fest returns to Humbolt Park this weekend, September 12th through 14th. If you were into alt rock and emo punk in high school or college, the lineup will be a trip down memory lane with old favorites like Weezer, The Cure, The National, The Used, The Get Up Kids, Tegan and Sara, Motion City Soundtrack. We're not telling you what to wear to Riot Fest because that would be ironic, but we do have some style pointers based on our previous festival experience and the weekend's weather forecast. Weather is expected to be in the 50s with a high of 64 degrees, so put away those denim cutoffs if you haven't already - because it's time.
