    Rock 'n roll ain't free.

    At least that's what the organizers of Riot Fest have found out after the Chicago Park District announced a $182,000 bill for damages to Humboldt Park during the Sept. 12-14 music festival.

    According to the RedEye, the tab is three times more than the $54,300 spent on grounds repairs last year.

    Rain turned the festival grounds into a muddy mess.

    The bill pales in comparison to the $266,000 it will cost to fix Grant Park after last summer's Lollapalooza.
