Photo Gallery: Riot Fest 2021 • Day One

| September 17, 2021

Riot Fest returned to Douglas Park after their 2020 COVID-19 sabbatical with a first: a bonus day (adding to its usual 3-day format) for multi-day ticket buyers and other VIPs. Despite several high profile COVID-related cancellations – the norm in this weird environment, the Riot Fest crew assembled a genuinely worthy day of music featuring Kristeen Young, Joyce Manor, WDRL, and three blockbuster performers – the godmother of punk rock Patti Smith and former Smiths vocalist, the sometimes controversial Morrissey and Chicago’s Alkaline Trio. The weather was perfect in Douglas Park, and joy ruled the day. The music only gets louder and more crucial from here. Curt Baran caught the action daily from the photo pit for IE.
