Blacken Open Air Festival Announces 2018 Lineup

The Northern Territory’s annual heavy music festival Blacken Open Air has announced its 2018 lineup, which will make its way to “the dead centre” of Australia between March and April.

Headlined by Melbourne punk metal outfit High Tension (pictured) and Perth band Earth Rot, the lineup also features the likes of The Horror, Southeast Desert Metal, Miazma and Vicious Circle, but they’re just the tip of the Blacken iceberg.

Blacken Open Air 2018 will take place across two days and two stages at Alice Springs’ Gap View Hotel this Easter weekend. Check out the full lineup and all the date and ticket details, below.
