I said no to Congress Theater, but Riot Fest hasn't been at the Congress in years. The park is a much better venue. Congress is a building violation away from falling apart - literally. Riot fest is a super fun time! I've been to all but one over the past 8 years. From Bad Religion to HorrorPops, Prodigy to Sublime, you are in for a musical adventure.

Although it is advertised as kid friendly, it is NOT. Security did nothing to various scenes and scenarios and we had to keep moving our spots to get away from questionable environments. Most definitely will NOT be attending another event by this vendor in the future.
The main act for Saturday, RUN DMC, were supposed to be doing a reunion gig and it was not worth the priced paid for our tickets. They lip synched during some songs and it was obvious they weren't worried about it. As a fan, I felt disrespected and ripped off.
Not impressed...big time disappointment.
