I Prevail by Jason R. Anthony

The main stage acts include I Prevail, Bad Omens, Badflower and Giovannie and the Hired Guns. The festival stage will boast Des Rocs, Tigercub and Brkn Love. Another big act is yet to be announced, so stay tuned for that!

Get to know the 2023 Riff Fest lineup below! Read why Bad Omens is my new favorite band here.

  • I Prevail

    You know and love I Prevail! They are one of Michigan’s biggest rock success stories. They’re selling out shows left and right, so it’s fantastic to have them coming home to headline Riff Fest.

  • Bad Omens

    Bad Omens features Noah Sebastian [vocals], Joakim “Jolly” Karlsson [guitar], Nick Ruffilo [bass], and Nick Folio [drums]. They are my new favorite band! Check them out.

  • Badflower

    Badflower features Josh Katz [lead singer, guitarist], Joey Morrow [lead guitar, backing vocals], Alex Espiritu [bass], and Anthony Sonetti [drums]. They’re a great, old school-sounding rock outfit!

  • Giovannie and The Hired Guns

    The Stephenville, Texas-based five-piece ascended to new heights with their smash hit, “Ramon Ayala.”

  • Brkn Love

    Look for a cool alt sound with Brkn Love!

  • Des Rocs

    One of the WRIF’s new favorites!

  • Tigercub

    Tigercub have firmly displayed their ability to lacerate the surface with ease with thundering “I.W.G.F.U.”
