Later this week, some of our editorial staff will be making the trip from Toronto to Humboldt Park for the 2013 edition of RIOT FEST CHICAGO, and while we’re familiar with Amtrak (thanks America), it’s a still a trip. On a train. That goes through Ohio and Indiana. So to get amped for the weekend event we’ve slapped together a three-hour, 50-video YouTube playlist of artists performing at the festival. In this case, it includes Blink-182, The Wonder Years, Against Me!, Glassjaw, Brand New, Best Coast, Blondie, Public Enemy, and well, a lot of deep cuts you should revisit.
If you’re in Chicago this weekend, make sure to catch up on everything BLARE x RIOT FEST via Joel Pilotte and keep tabs on AbsolutePunk, Property Of Zack and Punknews as they keep it punk. In case you haven’t, also follow @RiotFest on Twitter and check out the details for AP.net/POZ’s unofficial after party at The Red Door this Friday.
