Complete Lineup for 70,000 Tons of Metal 2018 Revealed!


The folks behind 70,000 Tons of Metal sure know how to build suspense: the cruise leaves from Ft. Lauderdale, FL this Thursday for Turks and Caicos, and the final lineup was just revealed yesterday! Most of the bill, including the biggest bands, has been out for some time now, but still: way to tease us right up until the very last minute.
