The Riverfest guide has been printed, but organizers are having to swap two headline concerts: Elle King will now perform on June 10, and Reel Big Fish will play June 9.

It was the other way around before pop star King was asked to perform at another concert that presented a conflict, Teri Mott of the festival said Monday.

Reel Big Fish had no problem swapping nights, she said.

The opening acts, however, are not switching. Soul act The Suffers will now open for Caribbean-inspired ska band Reel Big Fish, and rock band Fishbone will open for King, whose most recent hit is “Ex’s and Oh’s.”

The days of the concerts are wrong in the Riverfest guide, so mark your calendars. Both shows will be at Kennedy Plaza. Admission is included with a $10 Riverfest button. The festival will be June 3-11.
