We’ve been getting tons of questions about the 2024 RiffFest lineup, and it’s finally here. Are you ready? Last year’s RiffFest was so much fun, and we’re really excited to rock it with you for another year. For ticket information and more, go here.

Before we get into the 2024 RiffFest lineup, let’s reminisce about last year’s RiffFest. It was such a fun time. The 2023 RiffFest featured sets from I Prevail, Bad Omens, Rival Sons, Badflower and Giovannie and the Hired Guns, Des Rocs, Tigercub and Brkn Love. It was a special lineup, because I Prevail, of course, are one of Michigan’s biggest rock success stories. They continue to sell out shows. All of the acts put on fantastic sets, and it was such a great way to close out the concert season. I was especially happy to see Bad Omens on the bill, because they’re one of my favorite newer bands. They absolutely slayed at the concert, putting on a fantastic set that featured plenty of songs off their latest album, “The Death of Peace of Mind.” Last year’s event actually sold out, and we’re expecting another mega crowd this time around.

If you didn’t think we could top the 2023 RiffFest, you’re wrong, because this year’s lineup is just as stellar. It brings together some of the WRIF’s favorites with names that are tried-and-true. If you read the full lineup, you’ll also see some new names. One of the newer acts is also one of my favorite new bands, so I’m stoked to have them part of this bill.

The 2024 RiffFest is set to round out the summer concert season here in the Motor City. The event will take place Saturday, Sept. 28 at Pine Knob Music Theatre. Tickets will go on sale Friday, May 3, at 10 a.m. The Riff has your shot to win your way in. Listen for the Riff Fest cue to call to win tickets to Riff Fest 2024, plus get in the running online. Now, let’s get into the full 2024 RiffFest lineup. Read the full list of bands below. Not to wish away summer, but September can’t come soon enough.

FULL 2024 RiffFest Lineup:

  • 2024 RiffFest Lineup: Godsmack

    You know them and love them. Godsmack are headlining the 2024 RiffFest. I saw these guys last summer with Staind, and I’m always surprised with just how solid they sound year after year. Welcome back to Detroit, Sully and the guys.

  • 2024 RiffFest Lineup: Seether

    Here’s another popular name: Seether. These guys need no introduction. Shaun Morgan and Seether are one of the biggest bands to come out of the post-grunge era. They’ll bring their great live show to the 2024 RiffFest.

  • 2024 RiffFest Lineup: Asking Alexandria

    Asking Alexandria is another familiar name. The British metalcore band have spent years treating fans to their aggressive-yet-melodic sound. They always put on a solid show.

  • 2024 RiffFest Lineup: Wage War

    Wage War is one of my new favorite bands. The Florida metalcore guys always deliver super heavy, pummeling music but often include a positive vibe, too. I can’t wait to see these guys live.

  • 2024 RiffFest Lineup: Sleep Theory

    Sleep Theory are another great metalcore band, and they’re on the rise. Check out their “Paper Hearts” EP, which is out now via Epitaph Records. Get to know these guys before they get huge.

  • 2024 RiffFest Lineup: Festival Stage

    Those were all of the mainstage acts. But, the Festival Stage will also feature some fantastic talent. This year’s Festival Stage will bring sets from Royale Lynn, Fame on Fire and more.
