Pyscho Vegas heavy music festival announces 2018 lineup

Psycho Vegas is flying high once again, as the three-day heavy music festival has announced its 2018 lineup, topped by Swedish hard rockers the Hellacopters.

One of the best rock bands of the ’90s and ’00s, the Hellacopters broke up in 2007, reuniting for their 20th anniversary in 2016. Their appearance at Psycho Vegas will mark a rare stateside appearance for the band, and one of only two U.S. performances in 2018.

Also on the stacked lineup for Psycho Vegas, which takes place on three stages at the Hard Rock Hotel on Aug. 17-19: symphonic Norwegian black metallers Dimmu Borgir, drone kings Sunn o))), industrial extremists Godflesh, the horn-fired Rocket From the Crypt, Italian soundtrack greats Goblin, ’70 rockers Coven and dozens more. (There’s also a pre-party at the Hard Rock pool on Aug. 15 featuring Wolves in the Throne Room, Elder and more).

Now in its third year, Psycho Vegas has quickly established itself as the country’s best heavy music fest.
