Riot Fest set the bar pretty high recently by revealing that Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age and Jawbreaker would be heading up the three-day music festival in Chicago this year. And while a wealth of top notch acts were named, there was still space to add to the bill, so organizers have now unveiled a second wave of acts for the 2017 Riot Fest.

In addition to the three headliners, the 2017 Riot Fest features such major draws as Prophets of Rage, Paramore, New Order, Wu Tang Clan, M.I.A. and a DJ set from Beastie Boys' Mike D. You'll also find such stellar rock and metal talent as A Day to Remember, Taking Back Sunday, Bad Brains, Pennywise, X and more as part of the bill. See the full lineup at the Riot Fest website.
