Joining the nu-metal headliners are Slipknot and Rob Zombie, with the likes of A Day To Remember, Mastodon, Halestorm, Killswitch Engage, Beartooth, Motionless In White, Asking Alexandria and more also on the bill.

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,” explains Danny Wimmer Presents founder Danny Wimmer. 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.”

Slipknot’s Clown adds: After 20-plus 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.”
