With the news today of Nine Inch Nails cancelling all 2021 concerts, that left fans worrying what would come as they were the main headliners for Riot Fest. As usual Riot Fest has come in clutch though, and announced Slipknot will be taking their space as the headliner for the final night of Riot Fest 2021.
With this announcement as well is that Morrissey will headline the Thursday night pre-party, at least until he inevitably cancels. This event is free for all 3 day pass holders and now has single day tickets available with all proceeds going Chicago Coalition For The Homeless and other charities to be announced. Riot Fest has also stated that tomorrow wave 2 of their Riot Aftershows will drop leaving fans to wonder what special sets we could be seeing in intimate venues.
