After announcing headliners Weezer, Descendents, Social Distortion and X on June 20 for the Chicago edition, Riot Fest is beyond excited to announce its final headliner. On Friday, October 7, a very special Danzig &ldquo;Legacy&rdquo; performance with Glenn Danzig reuniting for Performances with Samhain Members, an onstage Reunion with Doyle from The Misfits as well as a blistering Danzig set will take place at Congress Theater during Riot Fest 2011 (Chicago).<br /> &nbsp;<br /> &ldquo;Everyone in music has a band or a musician that changed them. For me, it is Glenn Danzig. I am in music because of Danzig, Samhain and The Misfits. I remember being a 10-year-old when my friend handed me Danzig, and it blew me away. It was different&hellip;it was the first album for me, now looking back, where form matched content. Soon after, I found this entire wealth of music he wrote before 1988 and I became an even bigger fan. Musically, it opened my world to punk, metal and hardcore,&rdquo; said Michael Petryshyn, founder of Riot Fest. &ldquo;To have Glenn perform his solo works, to go on stage with Samhain for a set and, lastly, to play Misfits songs with Doyle will always be the one show I remember.&rdquo;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Thus far, Riot Fest has announced: Weezer * Social Distortion *Danzig * Samhain * Misfits set (Doyle and Danzig) *Descendents * X (play "Los Angeles") * Youth of Today * Suicide Machines * ALL (Scott, Chad and Dave) * Helmet * D Generation * Down By Law * 7Seconds * Leftover Crack * The Business * Strike Anywhere * The Tossers * Macabre* Nachtmystium * The Flatliners * Flatfoot 56 * The Menzingers * Banner Pilot * The Pavers * Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band * Shot Baker * The Copyrights* Cheap Girls * Larry and His Flask * Chines Telephones * The Crombies * The Holy Mess * Van Buren Boys * Neutron Bombs * The Infected&nbsp; AND MANY MORE WILL BE ANNOUNCED THROUGHOUT THE WEEK...<br /> &nbsp; <br /> Multiple-day passes and individual tickets go on sale Friday, June 24 at 10:00 a.m. CST.
