Chicago Riot Fest 2017 – Chicago Music Festival Douglas Park, Chicago, IL, USA,  September 15-17 Review by Sommer Thornton The 2017 Chicago’s Riot Fest brought out hundreds of thousands of metal, alt, emo, pop, ska, and hip-hop heads for three full days with five stage rocking at the same time. The acoustics for Riot Fest were so spectacular that I caught Taking Back Sunday open their set next to Wu Tang’s encore with no interference.
