Riot Fest

Rain and mud couldn't kill the vibe at Riot Fest 2015

Riotfest's Toronto stop certainly did its best to swing with the big boys of the festival circuit, right down to achieving the rain-soaked mudfest status that festivals across the pond have been perfecting for decades. Marred by horrendous downpours that sidetracked a few sets on day one (Gwar, Eagles of Death Metal), the rain still wasn't enough to ruin the day.

Day two certainly made up for the soggy start with sunny skies and sunnier spirits. There was a bit of something for everyone, from veterans (Thurston Moore Band, Babes In Toyland, Motorhead) to emo-kids-turned-adults (Moneen, Alexisonfire) to hiphop heads (Jazz Cartier, Tyler The Creator, Wu Tang Clan) to nostalgia trips (Weezer, Rancid).
