    Riot Fest has expanded its already epic Chicago lineup to include more than a dozen additional acts, including '90s rockers, Primus.

    The festival's 10th anniversary, scheduled for Sept. 12-14 in Humboldt Park, already features The Cure, Jane's Addiction, The National, Rise Against, Weezer, Wu-Tang Clan and Pussy Riot.

    After Wednesday night's announcement, it also includes The Hold Steady, Say Anything, Tokyo Police Club, Frank Iero, Only Crime, Lemuria, Pity Sex, From Indian Lakes, Lucki Eck$, Tiny Moving Parts, The Picturebooks and Survey Says!

    Tickets went on sale last month, with three-day passes ranging from $130 for general admission to $260 for VIP. The all-ages event also offers carnival rides and activities such as Lucha Libre wrestling.

    Riot Fest Chicago began as a multi-venue event in 2005, but moved to its Humboldt Park home in 2012.
