Riot Fest Denver forced to relocate due to upset locals

Late last month, residents of Byers, Colorado – the town that hosted Riot Fest Denver in 2013 – petitioned to have the festival relocated for its second year, apparently due to it creating traffic problems being too big to be held in such a small town. And they seem to have succeeded in getting it moved elsewhere, as Riot Fest released the following statement on Facebook earlier today:

“Due to circumstances beyond our control and despite lots of support for Riot Fest & Sideshow in Byers, May Farms is no longer available to host Riot Fest. A nearby alternate location will be announced early next week. We know this sucks, we’re as disappointed as you are, but if you could be a little patient with us, we’ll have more information ASAP. All tickets will be honored at the new location. Riot Fest in Denver is NOT cancelled, the show will go on, and rock n roll never dies.”

We’ll keep you posted as more details on the new location Riot Fest Denver will be hosted as come to light. The lineup for this year’s edition of the festival includes Descendents, NOFX, ALL, Buzzcocks, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Bouncing Souls, and a bunch of other great bands. Tickets can be purchased over here.
