Hey Reddit! We're the team behind Riot Fest, a three city music festival in Denver, Chicago, and Toronto. Ask us anything!
We’re the team behind Riot Fest, a three city music festival that’s in its eleventh year in Chicago, third year in Denver and fourth year in Toronto. This is our first time doing an AMA so be gentle—we’re extremely sensitive despite our edgy online persona. Feel free to ask us any question about music, the festival, or anything else you guys can think of—specifically, horse-sized ducks vs. duck-sized horses. Besides following us on Twitter or Facebook, you can also check out /r/riotfest, the guys over there do a great job keeping all the most up to date festival information for you. We just announced single day lineups and our panel speakers for Riot Fest Speaks, if you’re into that kind of thing.
You can still buy a few different tiers of tickets for each cities’ fest, and if you’ve got ‘fuck you’ money, you can buy into our newest ticket tier, the ringmaster ultimate VIP package.
We promise not to make fun of you too much for your choice in music, and we’re sorry we didn’t book the bands you wanted.
On top of our three city music festival, we also have shows throughout the year in each of our three major cities that you can find out about on our club shows page, and finally we have to plug our newest venture Riot Fest Foundation, our charitable foundation dedicated to better equipping our communities to sustain the presence of music, art and education, and to supporting charitable causes and civic endeavors that effect positive change in our neighborhoods.
Ask us anything!
EDIT: [Riot Mike] Thanks for chatting with us everybody! We all hope to see you in a couple of weeks. Be safe. If somebody falls pick them up. Drink plenty of water, but above all else, be nice to one another.
