Inkcarceration Festival Line-up Announced

Now is the time to “lock up” your summer concert plans! Introducing the Inkcarceration Music and Tattoo Festival, a one-of-a-kind destination event that presents attendees with the experience of a lifetime: non-stop live music from 30+ bands on two stages and a tattoo festival inside of one of the country’s most infamous abandoned locations, plus so much more. The inaugural Inkcarceration Music and Tattoo Festival will take place on July 13, 14 and 15 in Mansfield, Ohio at the eerie, enormous Historic Ohio State Reformatory (100 Reformatory Rd.). This massive, awe-inspiring locale is recognized primarily as not only one of the most haunted buildings in the country, but also as the filming location for the 1994 cinematic classic, The Shawshank Redemption, starring Hollywood legends Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins.

Weekend tickets, VIP, RV and camping packages are on sale NOW at! Mansfield is conveniently located directly between two major cities in Ohio, Columbus and Cleveland, and is under a five-hour drive from major cities such as Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Detroit, Louisville, Buffalo, and Pittsburgh. Road trip!

Summer is always over in a flash – why not get the most bang for your buck and experience multiple huge events in one? At Inkcarceration, not only will attendees rock out to three days of live music from their favorite rock bands, they can also be tattooed by acclaimed local and regional artists, tour one of the most famous reformatories of all time, enjoy tasty treats and refreshments from 15+ food trucks onsite, browse goods from a number of vendors, experience a full rock n’ roll circus sideshow (brought to you by Hellzapoppin), and more!
