Foo Fighters, The Cure, The Postal Service, Death Cab for Cutie and Queens of the Stone Age will headline the 2023 edition of Riot Fest, it was announced on Tuesday, along with the full line-up of bands set for this fall's event.

Foo Fighters and Turnstile took the lead on September 15; Postal Service, Death Cab for Cutie and Queens of the Stone Age on Sept. 16; and The Cure and The Mars Volta on Sept. 17.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Tuesday Riotfest.org.

The festival takes place September 15-17 at Douglass Park, a venue that has been home to a musical extravaganza since 2015. A series of meetings between Riot Fest organizers and members of the public last year revealed the ongoing efforts of some local residents and businesses in Little Village and Lawndale to move the festival to another location. Festival organizers say they are working closely with the community and municipal institutions to address issues such as traffic and logistics.

As well as food/drink vendors and merch tents, this year's festival will also bring back the carnival area, wedding chapel and vintage Logan Arcade games.

Foo Fighters are on the road this year without their longtime drummer Taylor Hawkins, who died last year at the age of 50 while the band was touring South America. In a New Year's Day Instagram post, the group said goodbye to 2022, calling it “the most difficult and tragic year” the band has ever known.
