The 2018 festival will be headlined by legendary Australian Classic Heavy Metal band BLACK STEEL, who are performing for the first time in a decade!  With a career boasting packed out headlining shows and massive international supports alongside DEEP PURPLE, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, the 2004 METALLICA headlined BIG DAY OUT and two separate JUDAS PRIEST tours, the legends are true and the demand for a reunion show is at an all time high. This will be an absolutely unmissable set!

This year, the main support honours go to WA Power Metal crowd favourites SILENT KNIGHT who are taking a break from writing album #3 to let loose on one of their very few times on stage in 2018. Every year Stormrider Touring brings the best in national touring bands to the West Coast. In 2018 we will see the long-running

Progressive/Power Metal legends EYEFEAR return to WA for the first time since their 2013 national tour with NIGHTWISH, while Sydney’s Blackened Thrash experts BASTARDIZER & Melbourne Thrashers REQUIEM make their WA debuts and are both releasing new albums!

The line up is bolstered by solid local support, Thrash fans will rejoice with the inclusion of COLD FATE & DEATH DEPENDANT, while the Melodic side includes an album launch from rising stars AGNESIS and the blooding of opening acts LEGACY OF SUPREMACY & SENSIMILLIA.
