CHICAGO (WLS) -- Riot Fest is offering ticket-holders full refunds after show organizers switched venues in Chicago.

Officials announced Wednesday that the four-day music festival will move to Douglas Park after weeks of complaints from people living near its former location, Humboldt Park. Many say the event leaves their park damaged and unusable for weeks.

Anyone who wants a refund has to apply before Monday. The official lineup is set to be announced sometime next week.
