Our Riot Fest contest is now closed! Thank you to all who entered, you’re all No. 1 in our hearts. Congrats to winner Amber Bordun (Those jeers and rotten fruit hurtling your way is all out of love, I’m sure)…Y super gracias a Katherine McFarlane at Union Events East for providing the tickets. They’re still available at Toronto.RiotFest.org; Riot Fest Toronto goes down next weekend (Sept. 6-7), and is going to be hotter and wilder than any university frosh week!
Yeah, the summer may be winding down, but there’s no need to cry about it. There’s still a lot of great live music to be had, particularly in the form of Riot Fest Toronto on September 6th and 7th at Downsview Park.
Psst, there’s no crying at Riot Fest BTW, so put on your big boy (or girl) pants and enter our contest for a pair of general admission passes. All you need to do is submit a comment with the band you’re most looking forward to seeing.
While it’s already been a banner year for festivals around town, Riot Fest’s lineup has the potential to blow them all out of Lake Ontario – 50+ artists will punk it up across multiple stages, including Social Distortion, The Flaming Lips, The National, Rise Against, Metric, Billy Talent, City and Colour and The Cure.
If this isn’t a kick-ass way to spend the weekend after Labour Day while giving summer the middle finger, I’m not sure what is.
Tickets are also available here, although you had better hurry before the price goes up one last time!
Comments on “Giveaway: Win Tix to Riot Fest Toronto!”
Definitely definitely Brand New. I don’t think I’ll EVER stop liking them. <3 <3 <3
OMG I have to go see the Cure!!! Love cats on my mind ever since I heard they were coming!!
The Cure. Wait, Social Distortion. No I mean The Cure is who I really want to see. Actually, I lied. It’s Social Distortion. I lied again. The Cure. But really it’s Social Distortion. (The Cure.) (Social Distortion.) Argh. The Social Cure for Distortion?!?!?!
SO not fair having to pick one.
I’ve been trying to see rise against for years now!!!!
I’m most looking forward to City and Colour!
I am most excited to see Metric!
OK I admit I’m old, but I really want to see The Cure. I’ve loved Robert Smith since high-school but never once seen him live. I also have a crush on Matt Berninger but that is another story.
Looking forward to seeing Lucero!
New Found Glory!!
The band I’m most looking forward to seeing is Awolnation because I’ve never seen them live before.
Looking forward to seeing The Cure and The National!
Afghan Whigs, Buzzcocks & Bob Mould will do just fine for me…

I cant wait to see DFA 1979 and the Cure.
Riot Fest…It’s a toss up between Circa Survive and Brand New 😀
PLEASE LET ME WIN.
I WANT TO SEE CIRCA SURVIVE SO SO BAD
I’d really LOVE to go to Riot Fest and see Deathcab for Cutie live. I haven’t been to a 2-day concert in ages (have a 2 and 5 year old at home) and would be so grateful for an opportunity to rock out! Like the old days!
I am DYING to see the Cure, I missed seeing them the las time they were here and cannot make the same mistake this time! Thanks for the great contest 🙂
Can’t wait to see Billy Talent!
Bring Me The Horizon
I’d LOVE to see Billy Talent and Rise Against live! I’ve been a Billy Talent fan for a long time and need to go to one of their shows, especially after their latest album release which is absolutely amazing. I’m still listening to it on repeat even though it’s already been out for 2 years! I’ve just recently become a Rise Against fan but I really like what they stand for in their music. Great role models and people in general!
PUP- Hollerado only has good things to say about them.
The New Pornographers!
I’m going with Death From Above 1979!
