flyer

Riot Fest just keeps on adding cool stuff. The announcement reads:

For the 10th Anniversary of Riot Fest, founder Michael Petryshyn is realizing a long-held idea of staging a socio-political discussion within the confines of his music festival. As a person of Ukrainian descent, Petryshyn felt that engaging in a panel discussion with the brave, controversial women of Pussy Riot was the perfect event to launch the Riot Fest Speaks stage.

The inaugural event (Friday, September 12 at Humboldt Park in Chicago, IL) will be moderated by Henry Rollins will lead the panel consisting of Nadya Tolokonnikova (Pussy Riot/Zona Prava), Masha Alekhina (Pussy Riot/Zona Prava), Greg Graffin (Bad Religion, Vocalist/Professor or Geology at UCLA), Tim McIlrath (Rise Against), Marcelle Karp (writer/activist), Michael A. Petryshyn (Riot Fest, Founder), through discussion of social/political movements: their connection to art/music/creative collectives and the cross-pollination that takes place when activists exchange ideas and join each other to generate changes in the traditional soliloquy of thought and action. While addressing urgent issues, the panel will be conducted in a casual manner with a relaxed demeanor and a catalyst for an entertaining and thought provoking experience.

Riot Fest also recently announced more after shows.
