In previous years, Riot Fest has cultivated lineups that have featured reunions and rare appearances—and 2015 is no exception. Bands such as Drive Like Jehu and Thrice will be making reunion appearances at Riot Fest Toronto. Moreover, rare appearances by Alexisonfire, Echo and the Bunnymen and Motörhead give 2015’s edition its unique feel. In addition to the first wave of bands, Rancid has confirmed that they’ll be performing their seminal album… And Out Come The Wolves during the festival.
Outside of the announced bands, this year’s festival will also include a circus tent featuring the Hellzapoppin Circus Sideshow Revue, a miniature golf course, a video arcade hall, and a wide array of food and drink options.
