    It looks like Sunday single day tickets are already entirely sold out at all pricing tiers.

    We will have two regular GA Sunday tickets if anyone missed out. He grabbed those and I grabbed VIP ones solely because I am a whiny princess and cannot stomach the thought of the festival Portapotties. ��

    I believe they are Will Call and require ID, meaning you’d have to actually meet us there that day.

    Same. I’m getting too old to fest and plus, I wanted to treat myself.

    Have they continued with the side by side stages since 2017? I'd really like to catch Devo too and that kitty corner with a T-bone barrier made it pretty nice to catch almost every band at the time.

    GA will be e-tickets, from what my confirmation email said.

    I also hope that it'll be possible to see Devo in full, and still get a good spot for NIN.

    I haven't been back since 2017, but here's the 2019 map.

    This will be our third or fourth time at Riot Fest, we went for the first time a year or two before NIN headlined and loved every second of the weekend there. It's our favorite festival of all the different ones we've been to. RF is not at all as pretentious feeling as some of the others out there... If you haven't been before, highly recommend to go earlier in the day and check everything out, even down to the carnival rides and the Hellzapoppin Sideshows (if they're back, I don't know if they are going to be or not). Don't know how different it will be now after COVID and such, but I imagine it'll still be a great time.

    I've had 3-day VIP passes since last August (was tempted to buy Deluxe, but I bought them LONG before I knew NIN would be there). Happy to see pretty much everyone here who wanted to go was able to get tickets. I'll see you fellow pigs in the pit!

    Was somehow able to score Deluxe tickets before Sunday sold out. Guess I'm gonna be getting back to Chi-town!

    Does anyone have an extra pair of 3-day passes (GA or VIP tickets) they're looking to sell? I have a couple of friends who are interested.

    Took a right old punt on this. Got two tickets for Sunday but I'm hoping Covid restrictions are relaxed before then as I'm coming over from England.

    Does anyone have an extra ticket to this show ? Looking to make a trip to Chicago from San Diego to see them.

    Do you still have these tickets? I'm in need of one if so

    Anyone know if the main stage lineup has been announced, or when that usually comes out? Then I can mentally prepare myself for hanging out in a pit for an entire day, something I haven't done since 2014 (for QotSA at Sasquatch Festival, and well worth it).

    I'm officially too old to really enjoy festivals anymore, but I must say that my one Riot Fest experience I've had was maybe the best of all the festivals I've been to.

    I don't actually have a ticket to this yet, but hoping to snag one for a not-too-outrageous between now and September.

    Also, hoping some HEALTH+NIN live debut action happens onstage!

    In 2017 they announced stage line ups the same time single day passes went on sale.

    Also, don't get your hopes up about a NIN crossover with another band. In 17 Saul Williams, Ministry and New Order all played the same day as NIN and we got absolutely nothing. (Except for the debut of The Background World, that was rad.)

    See also: NIN+QOTSA 2014 tour. No collaborations despite so many studio crossovers.

    Yeah, good point. I guess I am more optimistic about it given that their collab with HEALTH was so recent. In my brain, here is what happened:

    TR: * opens phone and scrolls to H section in contacts *
    TR: Hey guys, saw you are playing in Chicago in a few months. Remember that song we just worked on? What do you think about playing that together at the start of our encore? And then you can help us jump into [fill in the blank with some other NIN crowdpleaser]?
    H: * all nod heads *

    Ah well, a guy can dream. TBH, at this point, it's been long enough seeing NIN that even if the festival shows end up being greatest hits + 1 or 2 deep cuts (even medium deep) I would still sleep happy for about a year straight.

    Yeah, I think the odds are more in our favor this time around since "Isn't Everyone" is the closest thing to a NIN single we've had since 2018. You could argue that it's in their best interests to play that song.
