Attention all punk rockers, metal heads and hip-hop lovers: your annual head-banging, mosh-pitting autumn affair will not be coming to Toronto this September.
In a statement published on their website Monday, organizers of Riot Fest announced that they would be axing the Toronto stop this year due to “local changes in Riot Fest’s partnership” in the city.
“While Riot Fest has fallen in love with Toronto and the province of Ontario because of all of the great music fans who have welcomed and supported us in these last few years, Riot Fest 2016 will only take place in Denver and Chicago,” the statement reads.
Based out of Chicago, the organizers of the festival depend on the help of local co-presenters when Riot Fests makes its Denver and Toronto stops.
