The announcement follows a highly successful second year for Complexity in 2017, which led to Kerrang Magazine stating:
"They've really upped their game, with a line-up of rising stars and heavyweights that go way beyond your average run-of-the-mill Meshuggah worship."
In 2018 Complexity will consist of a Friday evening (18:00-02:00) and full Saturday (12:00-04:00).
