    This September's Riot Fest in Chicago is seeing some lineup changes. The Pixies have replaced Motörhead as one of the headliners, since frontman Lemmy Kilmister has had some health troubles which have forced the band to table touring plans. This event will mark the first Pixies concert in the U.S. in two years.

    Bad Brains and Attack Attack! have also dropped out of the festival.

    Riot Fest is set for September 13-15, and includes other new additions such as Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Suicidal Tendencies, Andrew W.K., Hatebreed, T.S.O.L., Off with Their Heads and The Flatliners.

    If you could design your own festival, who would play it and where would it be?
