BANGTEL had a blast as the official design team for the Artist Area at Riot Fest Chicago. Armed with paint brushes and whole lot of gusto, we transformed a long line of shipping containers into a kitschy 1970’s-inspired trailer park. The Artist Area was made complete with shag rugs, lava lamps, and vinyl records. As if it wasn’t 1970’s trailer park enough, we aired out some old Riot Fest merch on clothes lines that all the artist were plucking from.

BANGTEL’S designed spaces got to host top-tier acts including Wu-Tang Clan, M.I.A., and Nine Inch Nails, just to name a few!!

We had a lot of fun designing, and took plenty of photos to prove it.
