Earlier this spring, the music lineup for the 2018 X-Games was announced. Zedd, Kaskade, Ice Cube and Brother Ali were all set to perform at the same location as last year’s X-Game performances. However, recently it was announced that the music will be moving down the block from its former location to The Armory.
The former stage location was just outside of U.S. Bank Stadium, where the X-Games events are held. The new location, The Armory, is one of the most amazing venues in Minneapolis at the moment. The 1930’s built venue has had a variety of shows since reopening in 2017, including Super Bowl performances from Pink and Imagine Dragons. While there’s no explanation as to why the X-Games have changes venues for the music, having a larger venue that doesn’t have to deal with the sporadic Minnesota weather does make sense. Tickets for the X-Games are still available here! To learn more about The Armory, check out my review from their reopening night with Seven Lions, Tritonal, and Kill The Noise.
