Riot Fest Announces 2022 Lineup Featuring My Chemical Romance, Misfits and Nine Inch Nails

Despite live music returning in 2021, it was not without its fair share of hiccups. Riot Fest, who was slated to have both My Chemical Romance and Nine Inch Nails in 2020 and 2021, had to readjust after COVID-19 forced the bands to pause their touring schedules. Luckily, 2022 seems to be the year, and the two acts are headlining a massive rock-filled weekend alongside the original Misfits lineup to perform Walk Among Us in honor of its 40th anniversary. Riot Fest returns to its home of Chicago once more from Sept. 16-18.

In addition to the three headliners, Riot Fest enters its 17th year with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Bauhaus, a reunited Sunny Day Real Estate, The Linda Lindas, Jeff Rosenstock and more. Several reunions will also be taking place at Riot Fest, including Yellowcard, The Academy Is… and Midtown.
