The 2018 edition of Carolina Rebellion has announced its lineup. The three-day music festival is set to take place May 4th through 6th at the Rock City Campgrounds at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Headlining the festival will be Muse, Alice in Chains, and Godsmack. Other appearing artist highlights include Queens of the Stone Age, Stone Temple Pilots, Incubus, Billy Idol, Baroness, Quicksand, The Sword, Code Orange, and Red Fang.
Also appearing at the festival will be Stone Sour, Andrew W.K., Clutch, Greta Van Fleet, Thrice, Underoath, The Used, The Bronx, Trivium, Power Trip, The Struts, and more.
General admission and VIP passes are currently on sale through the festival's website.
Carolina Rebellion was first held in 2011 at the Metrolina Expo in Charlotte. The festival has been occurring annually at Rock City Campgrounds at Charlotte Motor Speedway since 2013. Past headliners have included Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kid Rock, Marilyn Manson, and Rob Zombie.
So far, Carolina Rebellion is the only announced Muse festival show taking place in the United States in 2018. Last May, the band announced that they would be releasing an new album in 2018, but neither the specific title nor release date have been revealed at this time. At the time of the announcement, they also released a new single, "Dig Down".
Hopefully, the announcement of the festival appearance in North Carolina in May means a new Muse album will be with us before then. It would be their first since 2015's Drones, and we are crossing our fingers that news, and new music both come out soon.
