The INKCARCERATION Music and Tattoo Festival recently announced its return to the historic Ohio State Reformatory, a.k.a. Shawshank Prison, in Mansfield, OH, on July 12, 13 and 14. This year’s massive line-up will be led by none other than colossal rock bands Shinedown, Godsmack and Five Finger Death Punch. Quickly becoming one of the nation’s premier rock festivals, INKCARCERATION will feature over 30 bands on two outdoor stages, 70 tattoo artists, reformatory tours, gourmet food trucks, the best drinks and for the first time, the haunted house attraction, Escape from Blood Prison.
INKCARCERATION Music and Tattoo Festival’s incredibly unique festival setting – the historic Ohio State Reformatory – is considered one of the most haunted buildings in the country and the setting of the 1994 cinematic classic/IMDB’s highest rated movie of all time, The Shawshank Redemption (celebrating its 25th anniversary his year). The Ohio State Reformatory is centrally located about an hour away from Cleveland, Columbus, and Canton/Akron, Ohio and within a three-hour driving distance of Toledo, Dayton, Cincinnati, Youngstown, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, northern West Virginia, Michigan and southern Ontario. Additionally, INKCARCERATION features tent and RV camping for a true outdoor festival experience!
Stay tuned for more details coming soon regarding gourmet food trucks and more.
With the concert happening outside, INKCARCERATION will feature 70 local and regional tattoo artists tattooing all weekend inside the reformatory.
