If music festivals are good for one thing it's seeing great new bands. If they're good for anything else it's seeing bands you used to really like play again after a long hiatus. This year's Riot Fest
has a great crop of both new and old acts, so for anyone that missed these bands the first time around now's as good a time as any to catch up on what everyone's been carrying on about.
