Oblivion Access — the hard-edged music festival previously billed as Austin Terror Fest — has announced its full 2020 lineup, including grindcore pioneers Carcass, straight-edge band Youth of Today, avant-noise act Swans and noise rockers Daughters.

The fourth annual metal, extreme rock and experimental showcase will take place June 5-7 at venues around Austin's Red River district.

The festival organizers offered up a preview of several headliners in November, also announcing the name change then. Apparently, the promoters worried the word “terror” carried a hostile tone. "Oblivion Access," however, connotes a more welcoming environment for both audience and performers.

Aww. So, now you know.

The full lineup is available online. But for those too lazy to click, here's a sampling of highlights:

Youth of Today
Zola Jesus
Lil Ugly Mane
A Place to Bury Strangers
Melt Banana
Anna von Hausswolff
Kool KeithCough
