RH Riot Fest Schedule

With Riot Fest Chicago right around the corner, we figured we should make a list of shows you should see. When you think of Riot Fest Hip Hop isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. Traditionally the festival has focused on Punk, Metal and anything else that gets people to slam into each other for fun. But over the last few years more and more rappers have worked their way into the line up. This year that trend continues, and so we put together a list of the acts you should go see.


Digable Planets


Cypress Hill

Pussy Riot – They aren’t rap but don’t miss the opportunity to see them.



There’s no rap on Saturday, but here are some recommendations for the shows that are happening.

Beach Bunny



Twin Peaks




Run The Jewels is the only Hip Hop group but they are headlining and it’s sure to be an insane show.

Check out the full lineup below.
