A record setting crowd of 27,950 attended a very hot and humid Bud Light River City Rockfest at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, TX on Saturday, May 27, 2017. It was the largest crowd in the five-year history of the festival. The Memorial Day Weekend outdoor concert featured two main stages for the larger acts, with a third stage also featuring national acts. The fifth annual Rockfest lineup included some of the biggest names in rock music, including Def Leppard, Godsmack, The Offspring, Papa Roach, Three Days Grace, The Pretty Reckless, Taking Back Sunday, Buckcherry, Black Stone Cherry, Fozzy, Dorothy, Kyng, Goodbye June, The Heroine, Nothing More and members of San Antonio’s School of Rock. Adding to the entertainment experience for a second straight year was circus sideshow revue Hellzapoppin. The stunt show extravaganza includes a smorgasbord of dark artists, including a fire breather, a sword swallower, and an acrobat.
