Following the announcement that the original Misfits lineup would perform together for the first time in thirty years at Riot Fest & Rodeo in September, the traditionally alternative festival has announced its full current slate of bands for the Denver and Chicago editions, featuring many big names and rare appearances.

In addition to reunions from bands like Thursday, Wolf Parade and, of course Colorado favorites Ween, the festival will feature special sets, such as Jane's Addiction performing Ritual De Lo Habitual in its entirety and the Hold Steady playing Boys and Girls in America with Franz Nicolay.
