The threat of evening rain hung over the final day of Riot Fest 2022, but at least for the opening hours, festival-goers were enjoying clear skies and picture-perfect, 80-degree temperatures in Douglass Park (1401 S. Sacramento).

Nine Inch Nails was scheduled to close the festival after sets by Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Coolio, Jawbox, Zola Jesus and other acts. Over its three days, Riot Fest presented nearly 100 bands across five stages.

On Friday and Saturday, fans caught bands including Alkaline Trio, Taking Back Sunday, Descendents, Lucky Boys Confusion, The Original Misfits, Bad Religion, The Joy Formidable and Get Up Kids.

So large and enthusiastic was the Friday crowd for headliner My Chemical Romance that lead singer Gerard Way frequently stopped the show to urge fans to take a step back so that people in the front wouldn’t get crushed.

Here’s a look at some of the sights and sounds of Day 3 of Riot Fest 2022:
