Riot Fest has mushroomed into one of the country's biggest rock festivals--expanding from its base in Chicago in 2012 and again this year to Toronto and Denver--since forming in 2005.

This year, the fest's big draw--based on the T-shirts, if nothing else--was Blink-182, including one fan who dressed as the nurse from the cover of 1999's Enema of the State.
