Inkcarceration Music & Tattoo Festival has just announced it’s new lineup for 2021, after having to cancel 2020’s event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Rather than moving forward with it’s typical July dates, the festival has been moved to September 10th, 11th, and 12th, but will once again take place at the historic Ohio State Reformatory.
While none of the original 2020 headliners (Limp Bizkit, blink-182, Weezer) will be returning for 2021, Inkcarceration has made up for the fans who have been patient awaiting the third iteration of the festival. Headliners for 2021 will be Slipknot, Rob Zombie, and Mudvayne — marking the first show in 12 years for the band, who just yesterday announced their highly-anticipated reunion for 2021.
Also on the lineup will be A Day to Remember, Mastodon, Halestorm, Chevelle, Killswitch Engage, Beartooth, Motionless In White, Asking Alexandria, Fever 333, Steel Panther, The Hu, Pop Evil, and many more.
Single day and weekend passes for Inkcarceration 2021 are on sale now here, starting at $75 plus fees.
Clown from Slipknot said, “After 20+ years on the road, it’s always wonderful to experience new things. We are excited to be a part of Inkcarceration Music & Tattoo Festival. It will be great to get back out there and be with our family again. Stay safe and see you soon.”
Adds Danny Wimmer, founder of Danny Wimmer Presents, which recently announced a new partnership with the creators of Inkcarceration to stage the festival, “We know firsthand what it’s like to grow a high concept festival from scratch, and the challenge of taking a great event to the next level. It always starts with the music, but you also need to create a great experience. We’ve been so impressed with Inkcarceration, and how quickly it became a must-see show on the festival calendar. Tattoos are such a central part of the rock n’ roll lifestyle – something that fans are always talking about on our own socials – and it’s such a unique location. I’ve toured the Ohio State Reformatory, and it’s an experience you don’t want to miss. DWP is excited to have the opportunity to bring Inkcarceration to that next level.”
