Nine Inch Nails, Jawbreaker and Queens of the Stone Age headline an impressive list of performers set to take the stage at the 2017 Riot Fest.
The lineup, which represents the first wave of performers for the festival, was announced Wednesday and includes acts such as Wu-Tang Clan, Paramore, New Order, Prophets of Rage, Bad Brains and a DJ set from the Beastie Boys' Mike D.
Other bands and artists include A Day to Remember, Taking Back Sunday, Dirty Heads, New Found Glory, Action Bronson, Vic Mensa, Say Anything, Mayday Parade, Streetlight Manifesto, GWAR and more.
Riot Fest takes place from Sept. 15-17 inside Chicago's Douglas Park. Tickets including three-day passes and VIP options are on sale now.
An additional amount of performers is set to be announced next month.
The event is acting as a reunion for Jawbreaker after a 21-year absence from live performances. Riot Fest is currently the only time the band will be reunited onstage.
