The Ohio State Reformatory will certainly be rocking this July. On Thursday, the new INKarceration Music and Tattoo Festival unveiled its debut music lineup featuring a battery of well-known bands.
Consider this. Over 30 bands on two stages. A tattoo festival with some 70 artist booths. Food trucks. Tours of the Reformatory. Vendors and the Hellzapoppin’ rock n’ roll circus sideshow.
Bands schedule to appear include Rise Against, A Day to Remember, Our Lady Peace, Suicidal Tendencies, Fuel, Hatebreed, Sevendust, and many others.
“We are very excited to host the 2018 INKCARCERATION Music and Tattoo Festival,” said Ohio State Reformatory Executive Director Paul Smith. “They plan to bring next-level entertainment to our venue, and we hope to have a long and prosperous relationship with them that helps benefit and secure the future of our organization, the historic site itself and the community.”
One featured band is Clutch.“We just finished our new album, and now it will be fun to get back out and play some shows,” Clutch drummer Jean-Paul Gaster said.
Weekend tickets range from $89 per person to $321, the latter of which includes VIP lounge access with food and a private bar. Premium VIP tickets are also available. Tent and RV camping will be available at the Richland County Fairgrounds, about five miles from the festival venue.
The fun takes place on July 13, 14, and 15.
