Limp Bizkit, Weezer and blink-182 will headline the third annual Inkcarceration Music And Tattoo Festival. The festival celebrating decibels and body art returns to the grounds of the famous Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, Ohio, July 10 -12, 2020.
“We here at the Reformatory are thrilled to be the home of the Inkcarceration Festival again for year three,” says Dan Smith, associate director of the Ohio State Reformatory. “The festival continues to bring some of the best music fans and tattoo enthusiasts from all over the world back to Mansfield! We can’t wait to share what will be the best Inkcarceration Festival yet!”
The Inkcarceration concert site–known as Shawshank Prison in the 1994 classic film The Shawshank Redemption–has truly been a go-to destination for heavy music fans. This year’s event boasts over 40 bands, 60 tattoo artists and a returning haunted house attraction (Escape From Blood Prison). There will also be tours of the reformatory, gourmet food trucks and camping facilities available.
“We are extremely humbled by the support the fans put behind this festival in 2019 and wanted to bring them something even bigger in 2020,” the Inkcarceration Festival team says. “For year three, we put together an extremely eclectic lineup that brings together all forms of rock. This festival is becoming known as the most unique event in the country, so we wanted to construct a lineup as unique as the venue itself. And of course, it’s still the only rock festival held at a famous haunted prison! We can’t wait for everyone to see what we have in store!”
