The INKCARCERATION Music and Tattoo Festival is Back


All set to return for its second year is Ohio’s INKCARCERATION Music and Tattoo Festival and this year’s lineup is looking pretty heavy, to say the least. Lined up so far are headliners: Shinedown, Godsmack, and Five Finger Death Punch.

The festival runs through the weekend of July 12-14th at the historic Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, Ohio. As well as the over 30 bands you can catch on its two outdoors stages, the festival will have 70 tattoo artists, drinks and gourmet food, plus, you can even tour the reformatory, the same one that was used as a filming location for the Oscar-nominated The Shawshank Redemption.

As well as a fantastic line-up of bands, the Tattoo portion of the event is a huge draw. With 70 booths featuring local and regional tattoo artists, INKCARCERATION Music and Tattoo Festival promoters say: “Building off such a strong inaugural year, we are so stoked to give our fans even more in year two. With Billboard chart-topping bands such as Shinedown, Godsmack and Five Finger Death Punch leading the way, tattoo artists from around the globe, and the historic backdrop of the haunted Shawshank Prison, INKCARCERATION 2019 will be the don’t miss rock event of the summer in the Midwest!”

As well as the big headliner bands like Finger Death Punch, you can also catch the likes of: Live, Taking Back Sunday, Seether, Skillet, I Prevail, Starset, Red Sun Rising, Motionless in White, Fozzy, Buckcherry and many more!
