Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age and Reunited Jawbreaker to headline 2017 Riot Fest

Organizers have revealed more than 70 of the artists who will descend on Douglas Park with their fans this September for Riot Fest.

The festival will be held Sept. 15-17, with Nine Inch Nails set to headline Friday, Queens of the Stone Age taking Saturday’s top spot and an exclusive reunion of punk rockers, Jawbreaker, who called it quits in 1996, will close out the weekend. In 2016 the festival reunited the Misfits, and in 2013 hosted the Replacements first reunion show.

Nine Inch Nails released the EP Not the Actual Events in December, while Queens of the Stone Age have been dropping vague hints about their upcoming release. Excitement over the possible Jawbreaker reunion has been ramping up for some time prior to the announcement.

Punk hardcore band Bad Brains are slated for a 40th anniversary performance, and Beastie BoysMike D will be on hand with a DJ set.

Others on the lineup include New Order, Paramore, TV on the Radio, Dinosaur Jr., Beach Slang, Wu Tang, Gogol Bordello, Prophets of Rage and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones. But fans still await another 25 acts, which will be announced next month, along with which bands will participate in the tradition of performing their seminal albums at the festival.

Three-day passes go on sale today at noon (CST).
