In an official announcement as of this morning, Chicago's annual Riot Fest let loose the confirmed word of expanding the event to multiple cities this year. They note: "We’re ecstatic to announce the expansion of Riot Fest into Dallas, Brooklyn, Philadelphia and Toronto this morning. We’ve been working diligently over the last few months to get all this new stuff just perfect and we believe we’ve gotten there. This is going to be our busiest and best summer yet." Furthermore, details of the Brooklyn bash on Saturday, September 8 are discussed as such: "Riot Fest Brooklyn [is] going down September 8 in Williamsburg Park with Gogol Bordello, Descendents, Hot Water Music, The Bronx, Screaming Females, The Menzingers and Larry and His Flask. Tickets for that go on sale soon and when they do you can head to the Best Buy Theater and Sound Fix Records to get them without service fees."
