Early this morning, the Riot Fest team announced the final additions to their 2016 festivals in Denver, CO (Sept. 2-4, National Western Complex) as well as single-day lineups. And with only a few hours before single-day tickets go on sale (Noon CST), there are several note-worthy additions for fans to get excited about, in addition to the previously announced The Original Misfitsreunion, Ween. Jane’s Addiction, and over a hundred more artists.
For the first time in his career, Julian Marley (son of the late Bob Marley) will perform Bob Marley and The Wailer’s Exodus in its entirety in Denver and Chicago. Considered one of the greatest albums of the 20th Century for not only its musicality, but its keen political and social awareness, Exodus – almost 40-years later – still displays its global relevance, especially when considering today’s political and social environment.
Julian Marley will be joining several other artists playing albums in their entirety at either one or both Riot Fests, including Jane’s Addiction (Ritual De Lo Habitual), Rob Zombie (White Zombie’s Astro-Creep-2000), Social Distortion (White Light, White Heat, White Trash on the exact date of its release 20 years ago) and The Hold Steady (Boys & Girls in America).
Outside of Julian Marley’s performance, other additions for Riot Fest & Rodeo 2016 in Denver include gypsy-punk favorites Gogol Bordello, Denver-based genre-defying DeVotchKa, one of the best current hip-hop artists in 2 Chainz and Colorado-based pop-punk influencers, The Lillingtons.
