Following its three-day romp in the Windy City, RIOT FEST made its way over the border just to set up shop (again) and bash everyone’s head in with an irremovable feeling of nostalgia. It’s just this year’s edition at Downsview Park raised a glass to the locals. On Saturday (September 19th), the likes of WEEZER, MOTORHEAD, AGAINST ME!, THRICE, and EAGLES OF DEATH METAL riffed on, but CANCER BATS, MONEEN, THE DIRTY NIL, DIE MANNEQUIN, and SAFE TO SAY hit home – only to prelude an ALEXISONFIRE reunion that dive-bombed into Crisis and made a promise to cut the “sentimental shit”. All in all, Riot Fest Toronto swung for the fences and delivered – like Ed Sprague in the 1992 MLB World Series – and photographer Jeff Filman was on-site to capture most of it. Check out his gallery above and stay tuned for Sunday’s most notable sets.
