Riot Fest Denver has announced a new name and location for its three-day 2015 music event.

Riot Fest & Rodeo (formerly Riot Fest & Sideshow) will take place at the National Western Complex (4655 Humboldt St., Denver) from Aug. 28-30. Previously, the event was held at May Farms in Byers, Colo., in 2013 and at Denver's Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium in 2014.

“What sets Riot Fest Denver apart from the other two markets (Chicago and Toronto) is we create a new theme for it every year,” said Riot Fest founder Michael Petryshyn in a press release. “So, now that we’re at the Complex, Riot Fest & Rodeo it is.”

The artist lineup and site details will be released in May. Early bird three-day passes for the Denver event go on sale Friday, April 24 at noon MST.
