Riot Fest will return for its third year in Colorado from August 28 to 30 at the National Western Complex. The Chicago-born punk rock carnival has quickly established itself as one of the largest music festivals here, drawing thousands for an array of bands best described as "loud." The fest has just announced the 2015 lineup: It will feature Modest Mouse, the Pixies, Snoop Dogg, Iggy Pop, Run DMC, Motorhead, Drive Like Jehu and many more. This year's lineup is eclectic (as in years' past), featuring everything from hip-hop legends (De La Soul, GZA, etc.) to pop geniuses (Cold War Kids) to heroes of punk and its affiliated genres (The Get Up Kids, 7 Seconds, etc.) The full list is below. 

There are also installments of Riot Fest in Chicago and Toronto. You can find more information about things like travel accommodations and affiliated club shows, on the Riot Fest web site. Tickets are on sale now.
