Riot Fest show still on despite permit denial

 

The Associated Press

Organizers of a three-day music festival near the small town of Byers say they plan to put on their show at an alternate, nearby location after the county denied them a permit for their original location.

Arapahoe County said Friday it would not grant organizers of Riot Fest a permit to hold the event at May Farms in September because Byers residents complained about massive traffic. But the Denver Post reports (http://goo.gl/7XPI7E ) that Riot Fest announced on its Facebook page that the festival would be held at another location being announced next week.

The festival includes performances from The Cure, Rise Against, Primus and The Flaming Lips.

Last year, Riot Fest brought about 15,000 people daily to Byers, a town of about 1,000 people 40 miles east of Denver.
