Riot Fest has announced additions to their 2021 edition after Sunday headliners Nine Inch Nails cancelled all of their 2021 shows due to COVID. Slipknot will now close out the festival's Sunday night on Sunday, September 19.
In addition, those who purchased three-day or single-day Sunday passes, as well as 2020 ticketholders who held onto their passes until this year, will receive access to a pre-show on Thursday, September 16. Morrissey will headline, and he'll curate the day's lineup, which is still to be announced. Tickets for Thursday will also go on sale today (8/19) at 12 PM CST, and proceeds will benefit the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless, plus other charities, still to be announced.
