Riot Fest announced its single-day lineups this morning, and also released news that single- and two-day tickets would be going on sale this Friday at 10 a.m.

Also, we joke about the omnipresence of both Andrew WK and GWAR on each year's Riot Fest bills, but it appears that Glenn Danzig is joining that exclusive club as well! His eponymous band, hot off their latest album, Black Laden Crown, has been added to the fest's already impressive bill, and will be playing Saturday evening. It'll be tough for him to top his performance with The Misfits at last year's Riot Fest, but we're sure Danzig is up to the challenge.

Check out the daily lineups below.


Riot Fest is Sept. 15 to 17 in Douglas Park. Three-day passes and VIP packages are on sale now, while one- and two-day tickets are on sale Friday, June 23 at 10 a.m.
