Backwoods Riot

Backwoods Riot has been going on for the last 2 to 3 years throughout the United States as a festival of country and redneck music.

The Backwoods Riot Festival in Indianapolis is presented by Mad Hatter Shows and will take place August 23 to 25, 2019.

We are putting a few additional twists to the festival experience. Being that we started mainly with comedy shows at Mad Hatter, we are bringing comedy to the festival. Not only comedic bands performing as part of the music shows, but also additional stand-up comedy acts that can be seen separate at the festival.

The festival will also have a night life / after party each night that will take place at the venue after the concert ends until 3am. This will consist of 2 buildings that will have bars and stages in each of them. One with live band performances and one having DJs play for dancing and the club experience. New information will be released every few days, so FOLLOW us here or on our Facebook page.

We want the overall experience to include the concerts, comedy, night life, clubbing, tail-gaiting type fun and more. The concerts and night life will all be taking place under roofs, so no need to worry about the Indiana weather and rain. You can bring in lawn chairs if you would like.
