Riot Fest Plans Return To Douglass Park, Backlash From Neighbors

Two other festivals — Lyrical Lemonade Summer Smash and Heatwave — are leaving the park following backlash from neighbors. Local organizers have protested Riot Fest’s presence at the park for years, but the festivals came under particular scrutiny last year as neighbors said they’d been forced out of large sections of the public park for weeks at a time over the summer so the private events could be held.
