Stay tuned for more info and announcements, including a second wave of Riot Fest Late Night shows which will be announced this Friday, August 20th.

Our fans deserve something amazing and we can’t wait to be together again. We’ve been working around the clock to make 2021 even more special—so that hopefully for one weekend, we can escape the world and find comfort in the music and people we hold dear.”

“Vic Mensa, Portugal. The Man, and I did an acoustic reimagining of ‘Every Step That I Take‘ off my album ‘The Atlas Underground‘. Was so great collaborating with these super talented friends. The sonic conspiracy continues!”

Mensa added:

“It’s always a dream come true to rock with Tom on anything, I’m his biggest fucking fan. Me & John [Gourley, of Portugal. The Man] actually met at like my 22nd birthday party at my house when I got cake faced by my girlfriend, so it was awesome to do some music together.”

Jason Aalon Butler commented:

“This project started as an effort to affect change. Change in our communities as well as the industry and art which we operate within.

Opening the floor to like minds and artists. Subversion is in the project’s DNA. So is hip hop. So is punk. So is ART. Which is why we are so proud to announce the visual component to the “MADE AN AMERICA” REMIX FT. TRAVIS BARKER & VIC MENSA.

Two artists tastefully combining the essence of rock and hip hop music; two realms that were created to challenge convention which is what we intend on doing in honor of these cultures.”
