Top-notch rocks bands like Def Leppard and Buckcherry flock to the stages of River City Rockfest in San Antonio, TX for a day of music and other festivities + Norma Jean, Three Days Grace, and Taking Back Sunday!

Every Memorial Day weekend since 2013, rock’n’roll’s finest gathers in San Antonio for a day of music and culture at River City Rockfest. This year featured a glowing lineup, consisting of top-notch acts like Def Leppard, The Offspring, Godsmack, Black Stone Cherry, and more.

Despite the sizzling 97-degree temperatures, the heat posed no problem to festival goers. The single day event featured countless crazy moments, such as Fozzy throwing a number of items at the crowd (who absolutely loved it), Buckcherry sprinting back and forth across the stage, and Papa Roach playing to a giant mosh pit. On top of all the action, The Pretty Reckless played a touching cover of “Like a Stone” in tribute to Chris Cornell. As the day came to a close with Def Leppard and The Offspring preparing to put on their final performances, Godsmack delivered a laid back show that gave way to a truly intimate moment.
