SAN ANTONIO - UPDATE: This year's River City Rockfest has been postponed until 2020. 

According to a press release, the festival was postponed due to issues with availability of top-tier talent to complete the lineup of bands this year.

The annual music festival has grown and had announced it would expand to two days, but fans will now have to wait.

The festival was postponed until September 2020, when it will return to the AT&T Center grounds.
