    Riot Fest, which is set to take place in Denver, Colorado from September 2nd through 4th and in Chicago, Illinois from September 16th through 18th, announced the final additions to their already stacked lineups today. A press release states, "For the first time in his career, Julian Marley (son of the late Bob Marley) will perform Bob Marley and The Wailers' Exodus in its entirety in Denver and Chicago." The release later adds, "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. For Riot Fest & Carnival 2016 in Chicago, along with Julian Marley's Exodus performance, the likes of The Flaming Lips, Sleater-Kinney, The Julie Ruin, The Bronx and more have been added to the bill."

    Julian Marley is not the only artist set to play an album in its entirety, Jane's Addiction will perform Ritual De Lo Habitual, Rob Zombie will play White Zombie's Astro-Creep-2000, Social Distortion will present their classic White Light, White Heat, White Trash on the exact date of its release 20 years ago and The Hold Steady will perform Boys & Girls in America.

    Other artists already slated to play in the festival's Denver iteration include Vince Staples, Ween, The Misfits, and many others. Chicago's lineup also includes Morrissey, Death Cab for Cutie, Social Distortion, and the recently added Flaming Lips.
