The Inkcarceration Music & Tattoo Festival, returning for its sixth year at the historic Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, Ohio, from July 19-21, is not just a gathering but a celebration of culture, art, and the supernatural. This year, the festival promises to be an unparalleled spectacle with a lineup of top rock acts, an assembly of over 115 tattoo artists, and the chilling allure of haunted attractions.

A Lineup That Rocks Is Announced

The festival’s music scene is set to electrify with three stages hosting three full days of performances from a mix of legendary bands and modern trailblazers. Headliners include rock powerhouses SHINEDOWN, GODSMACK, and BREAKING BENJAMIN, alongside fan favorites such as THE OFFSPRING, BAD OMENS, and HALESTORM. Notably, CHIMAIRA is making its first U.S. festival appearance in 14 years, marking a rare opportunity for fans to catch the band live. SHINEDOWN’s Brent Smith expressed excitement about their participation, highlighting the honor of joining such a distinguished lineup and the anticipation of sharing new music from SHINEDOWN #8.

Tattoo Artistry and Haunted Exploration

Inkcarceration sets itself apart by integrating a tattoo convention within the festival grounds, hosted inside the famed prison known from “The Shawshank Redemption.” Attendees have the unique chance to get inked by renowned artists from around the globe. Moreover, the festival offers free self-guided tours of the Ohio State Reformatory, granting fans a glimpse into the historic and purportedly haunted corridors of the prison. For those seeking thrills, the award-winning haunt, Blood Prison, opens its doors exclusively to festival-goers, providing a spine-tingling experience.

Paranormal Encounters and Musical Journeys

Adding to the festival’s allure is the “Voices Of Paranormal Prison” YouTube series, launched by DWP to capture the eerie essence of the reformatory. Featuring artists such as PANTERA and Corey Taylor, the series invites viewers to explore the paranormal alongside their favorite musicians. This innovative approach not only enriches the festival experience but also offers a unique intersection of music, history, and the supernatural.
