Riot Fest 2019 is taking place September 13th-15th in Douglas Park, Chicago and it’s the perfect culmination of music festival season. If you’re into this year’s lineup, now is the time to start shopping for tickets to the best punk and rock music festival in the country. This is their 15th anniversary after all, so we’re sure it’s going to be awesome! We’ll break down the Riot Fest 2019 ticket options here so you know what’s the best choice for you.
Haven’t gotten your tickets to Riot Fest yet? TickPick is the official online ticket marketplace for Riot Fest 2019. We’ve got cheap tickets – with no fees!
First off, there’s no camping at Riot Fest. It’s very much a city festival and easily accessible by Chicago public transport. You can go and come from your hotel (or Airbnb or apartment) in the city each day with no problem at all… and no traffic. How convenient! Now you just need a ticket…
If you get tickets during their Early Bird Presale, they’ll be even cheaper. You can view all Riot Fest Ticket Options on the official site here.
Riot Fest General Admission Tickets
General Admission tickets get you entry into the festival grounds and that’s about it. No assigned seats, no extras, nada. But there is something to be said about getting dirty and sweaty with the masses at a music festival. You can select a three-day festival pass for all of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday or you can just grab a single-day pass for any of the individual days (like if there’s a certain band you want to see and that’s it). Read more details about the GA Tickets to Riot Fest and see photos of the experience here.
Prices for three-day General Admission tickets start at $115, but after fees and city/county taxes are added, you’re looking at about $136. So cheap! View General Admission Tickets here.
If you’re willing to spend a little more cash, you can ramp up your Riot Fest Experience with three-day VIP Tickets! In addition to festival admission on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, you’ll also get VIP Gate entry, festival re-entry privileges, and five (5) beverage tickets.
These tix also get you unlimited access to the VIP Lounge, which means you’ll have privileges at the private VIP bar and restrooms (aka fewer lines to deal with!). There will also be private lockers for rental in the VIP area. Some Redditors reported that there were more shady spots to relax in the VIP spaces as well as vendors giving out free stuff in there, though we can’t make any promises!

Prices for three-day VIP tickets start at $250, but after fees and city/county taxes are added, you’re looking at about $299. View ticket options here!
If you’re willing to splash out a bit more, then you can up your luxury level at Riot Fest even more. With Deluxe Tickets, you’ll get three-day access to the festival plus all of the amenities and extras listed above in the VIP section. But you’ll also receive unlimited access to all the Deluxe areas of the festival, including the following:
- Viewing areas at main stages
- Complimentary Open Bar
- Air-Conditioned Restrooms (exclusively for Deluxe ticket-holders)
- Shaded Lounge with Plush Seating and Tenting
- Complimentary Gourmet Snacks throughout each day
- Cell Phone Charging Area
You’ll also get access to free Wi-Fi, personal guest services, and the option to purchase private lockers located in the Deluxe area. You can easily make your money back at that open bar, right? According to Reddit, while this ticket option is pricey, the bar is clutch. The Deluxe VIP area was shaded with plenty of seating, clean bathrooms, short lines, and its own roped-off viewing area at each stage last year.

This is the most lavish ticket you can possibly get at Riot Fest. And hey, if this is your event for the year, why not do it big?! You get everything that the VIP and Deluxe ticket-holders above get, plus “Unlimited Bliss in a Cushy Ultimate Cabana.” And that means…
