Once again, Inkcarceration Music And Tattoo Festival will take place at one of the most unique festival settings in the country — the Ohio State Reformatory. 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 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, northern West Virginia, Michigan and southern Ontario. This is the perfect destination festival! Additionally, Inkcarceration features tent and RV camping for a true outdoor festival experience! See below for more details.
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!"
Mentioned above, Escape from Blood Prison is the annual Halloween haunted house attraction hosted at the historic Ohio State Reformatory. It typically runs from the end of September through early November every year, but Inkcarceration will make this spooky attraction available for festival goers to experience all weekend long in 2019. Once Blood Prison takes over the reformatory, the enormous facility is filled with bloodthirsty inmates waiting for victims to enter and try and make it through the facility alive.
"It's an honor to be able to open the doors of Blood Prison a couple months early and give the guests of Inkcarceration a few scares in July! The warden, his family and the Blood Prison inmates are all excited to meet the fans at Inkcarceration," says Vic Amesquita, manager of Blood Prison.
