Riot Fest Denver 2013 day one: Photos of the people and culture

Riot Fest Denver kicked off on Sept. 21 in the Colorado town of Byers, bringing a healthy mix of punks, indie-rockers and everything in between. With a stacked lineup that included the newly reunited Replacements, Best Coast, Guided by Voices, Iggy and the Stooges, AFI, Alkaline Trio, the crowd was diverse — to say the least. Leather jackets, jean jackets, metal studs, teenagers, middle-agers, patches, green, red, blue hair, flannel shirts, no shirts — we caught it all at Riot Fest Denver. But billed as a “sideshow” too, there was quite a bit to take in, including wrestling, a Ferris wheel and people wearing only pink inner-tubes. Take a look at our photos below of the mosh pits, crowds, culture and fashion from the first day.

    The Replacements put on the most electric concert I’ve seen in years. They seemed to be riding the edge without a safety net the whole time.
