Bud Light River City Rockfest is returning for its sixth year on Saturday, September 22 at the AT&T Center Grounds here in the Alamo City and they're bringing fucking Nine Inch Nails.

Yup, you read that right. Arguably one the most important industrial acts of the late ’80s and ’90s, the cult-like following of Trent Reznor and friends seems only to grow as the years go by. Trent has aged into such a dark lord daddy now, so it's not surprising.

Also on the bill are Primus, Stone Temple Pilots, Bush, Chevelle, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Clutch, Hellyeah, Yelawolf, Suicidal Tendencies, The Sword, Drowning Pool, The Fever 333, Upon A Burning Body, Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown, I See Stars, Demob Happy, The Heroine, Blacktop Mojo, Lynnwood King & The Revival and Covina.

"With a new date and one of strongest lineups yet, we're looking forward to the sixth year of the Bud Light River City Rockfest," said Spurs Sports & Entertainment Vice President Tammy Turner in a press release. "After engaging with our fans, we are excited to provide new experiences at the event and look forward to continued expansion of the festival moving forward."

Is it the year of local music festivals stepping it up or something? With Float Fest securing acts like Snoop Dogg, Levitation in Austin getting Ministry, and now River City Rockfest landing an impressive bill, the bar has officially been set.
