In the fall of 2012, Los Angeles got their own alternative comedy festival, as Riot LA took place thanks to a successful crowd-funding campaign. Back in January, it was announced via Twitter that the festival would return in January of 2014. Earlier today, the festival unveiled a new website and the initial lineup of the fest, which will take place from January 9th-12th.
In addition, passes will become available for the Fest on Wednesday, October 2. The Superfan Pass is only $65, and will get you access to the entire festival for all four days, as well as admission to KCRW’s THE LOT @RiotLA on either Saturday or Sunday, which includes free booze, arcade games, and other shenanigans. The Superfan Passes go on sale on Wednesday (10/2) at noon PST. You can also pick up a VIP pass on the 2nd as well. That’ll set you back $500, but you’ll get VIP access that will allow you to skip the line, reserved seating, drink tickets, and a limited edition hardcover RiotLA 2012 autographed book.
