Chicago Riot Fest map & more attractions

"In celebration of our 10th anniversary, we are incredibly excited to reveal our new festival grounds in the north section of Humboldt Park. With the fest now operating between W. North Ave. and W. Division St. as the north and south boundaries, and within N. Kedzie Ave. and N. California Ave. as the west and east boundaries, there will be lots of room for our 7 stages, over a dozen carnival rides, custom 9-hole mini-golf course, haunted house brought to you by Zombie Army Productions, Lucha Libre wrestling, Gospel For The Guilty burlesque show, Hellzapoppin Circus Sideshow Revue, chainsaw sculpting, a classic 20-game arcade with all proceeds going to Chicago Coalition for the Homeless, and a wine bar. There will even be an additional 8th stage on Friday to house the special interactive panel with Nadya Tolokonnikova and Masha Alekhina of Pussy Riot.

1, 2, and 3-day passes, as well as all-you-can-ride carnival passes are still available but are going fast. 3-Day passes are nearly sold out and select single-day passes are gone now too. Don’t wait, get your tickets while they’re still available!" Festival Passes / Carnival & Haunted House Passes"

More from Riot Fest: "And yes, we will have a dedicated taxi stand and a shit ton more CTA buses this year." Also, printed schedules, not just digital.

There's going to be a freaking haunted house attraction! And a classic arcade. I swear it's like they are building this just for me and my interests! :) Really wishing I was going 2 days now. This is going to be a blast!
