Riot Fest Toronto was a muddy mess but the crowd didn’t mind getting dirty. I was level-headed enough to wear rubber boots to the jam-packed weekend music festival at Downsview Park in Toronto.

The eclectic lineup included acts from Courage My Love, Weezer, Rancid, All Time Low,Wu-Tang Clan, The Dirty Nil and The Prodigy. Acts took to four different stages, aptly named Riot, Roots, Rock and Radicals. Nostalgia was definitely in the air with veterans Rancid, Babes in Toyland, Wu-Tang Clan, Motörhead and Echo & The Bunnymen playing sets to a diverse crowd.
