Riot Fest returns for its fourth year, presenting three days of local and national bands playing all flavors of punk—hardcore, pop punk, ska-core, garage, thrash—at four venues. The festival makes a special point to showcase reunited groups, and this year’s featured acts are All, Big Drill Car, and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones (technically on hiatus, not broken up).
