Riot Fest: Your Guide to the After Parties

The early bird gets the worm but the night owl gets to keep the party going. Explore Riot weekend’s entire schedule of late night after shows.


Party and philanthropy? Say less.

This year, every Riot Fest Late Night ticket purchased will help us support the humanitarian relief for Ukraine. In addition, it will also serve the Douglass Park neighbors. A $2 charity fee has been added for select shows to support relief efforts and aid for the people of Ukraine; in addition, all Ukraine donations will be matched by Riot Fest towards the Douglass Park community (split between the Lawndale Community Academy and the CYC-Sidney Epstein Youth Center).


Riot Fest After Dark

Thursday kicks off the weekend a touch early with a special show from Alkaline Trio playing at the Metro. Friday’s Late Night festivities feature seven shows across the city:  Anberlin, PVRIS, The Maine, Sunny Day Real Estate, and even a burlesque show (Obscura) presented by SioBast and Dannie Diesel.



And if you can’t get enough by then, keep trucking through Saturday night with BullyAlexisonfireThe Academy Is…Emo Night Brooklyn, Jawbox, Jimmy Eat World, and Thursday at various venues throughout Chi-town. Then, to close out the weekend, catch  FEAR at Reggie’s and Jeff Rosenstock at Bottom Lounge with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: a full album performance of his 2021 album SKA DREAM.


Check out the full schedule and grab your tickets now! Many after-shows have sold out or have a very limited amount of tickets left.
