Riot Fest Chicago 2017 announced (holiday presale starts Tuesday)

Riot Fest Chicago

Pitchfork isn’t the only Chicago festival announced today. Riot Fest Chicago will return from September 15-17 in 2017, and a holiday presale begins Tuesday (11/22) at 10 AM CST. Here’s what the fest writes:

Can I refill your eggnog? Get you something to eat, drive you into the middle of nowhere, and leave you for dead?

This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We’re gonna press on, and we’re gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat butt down that chimney, he’s gonna find the jolliest bunch of fest-goers this side of the nuthouse.

But, nobody’s going to flip out. We’re going to have a wonderful Christmas, because Riot Fest Chicago 2017 Holiday Presale tickets are on sale tomorrow, Tuesday, November 22nd, at 10:00am CST.

We’re kicking off our fun old-fashioned family Christmas by heading out into the country in the old Riot Fest Bitchin’ Camaro to embrace the frosty majesty of the winter landscape and select that most important of Christmas symbols: Riot Fest Chicago 2017 Holiday Presale tickets.

So if you’re looking for any holiday gift ideas, we have one. Head over to tomorrow at 10:00am CST and get your Riot Fest Holiday Presale tickets before it’s too late.

This year’s Riot Fest recently wrapped up with Misfits, Thursday, Morrissey, Brand New, GWAR, and more.
