  • Run the Jewels will close out this year's Riot Fest, coheadlining with Incubus on Sunday night.

One week before opening day, Riot Fest has finalized its lineup, though the three big additions went public yesterday. When the festival announced Run the Jewels, Weezer, and Taking Back Sunday (who play the fest almost as frequently as Andrew W.K. and Gwar), they were presented as replacements for previously announced headliners Blink-182, who were forced to cancel several dates because drummer Travis Barker has been struggling with blood clots in his arms since June. With the release of daily lineups today, it's become clear that Weezer will headline Friday, Beck will headline Saturday, and Run the Jewels will coheadline Sunday night with Incubus.
Single-day tickets also went on sale today, and organizers announced a handful of other added bands: Street Dogs, the Dangerous Summer, Beach Rats, Just Friends, Archie Powell & the Exports, Typesetter, and Blood People. The entire Riot Fest lineup is below, broken down by day, with links to relevant Reader stories. The hour-by-hour schedule is still in the works. See you in Douglas Park in seven days!
