Nine Inch Nails join Riot Fest 2021 lineup in place of My Chemical Romance


My Chemical Romance won’t be headlining this year’s Riot Fest, but the Chicago festival has lined up a pretty solid replacement.

Nine Inch Nails leads the bill for Riot Fest 2021, set to take place September 17-19. The lineup also includes The Smashing Pumpkins, Run the Jewels, Coheed and Cambria, Pixies, Taking Back Sunday, Sublime with Rome, K.Flay, Living Colour, Meg Myers, FEVER 333 and Andrew W.K., along with two Mike Patton bands: Faith No More and Mr. Bungle.

MCR, meanwhile, is confirmed to headline 2022’s Riot Fest. The reunited “Helena” rockers postponed all of their tour dates to next year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
