Just when you think festival season couldn’t get any better, Riot Fest comes along. Despite last-minute difficulties faced by the Chicago festival in communicating with fans, the renowned bash still managed to put on something very special which fell in line with everything which everyone had expected from Riot Fest: killer riffs, legendary names and an atmosphere unrivalled by any other festival. Christian Sarkine headed down to Chicago to capture the best of what Riot Fest had to offer.
