Riot Fest is coming up in September and they’ve announced that, for their Chicago and Denver showcases, 10 bands will be performing their crowd-favorite “essential” albums in full.

​These performances are Riot Fest’s way of celebrating their 10th anniversary. The 10 bands/albums in participation are:

Jane’s Addiction: Nothing’s Shocking *
The Offspring: Smash *
Weezer: Weezer (The Blue Album) ^
Slayer: Reign in Blood ^
Samhain: Initium *
NOFX: Punk In Drublic ^
Descendents: Milo Goes To College *
Naked Raygun: Throb Throb *
The Get Up Kids: Something To Write Home About *
+1 more TBA

* Chicago only
^ Chicago & Denver only

Riot Fest will take place across three weekends this September. For the 6th–7th, it will be in Toronto’s Downsview Park; for the 12th–14th, it will be in Chicago’s Humboldt Park; and lastly, for the 19th–21st, it will be in Denver’s May Farms camping grounds. (Unfortunately, the Toronto festival currently does not feature any of the 10th anniversary acts listed above—hopefully they can at least have the TBA one.)
