2020 ‘Inkcarceration Festival’ Cancelled


This year’s planned edition of the ‘Inkcarceration Festival‘ has been cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns. The fest had been booked for July 10th-12th at the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, OH with Limp Bizkit, Weezer and Blink-182 among the lineup. The festival’s organizers issued the below statement on the matter:

“It is with extremely sad hearts that we must announce the cancellation of Inkcarceration Festival 2020. We’re sure this doesn’t come as a major surprise given the number of festivals and concerts our industry has already lost and will continue to lose this year.

Let us be clear, this is heartbreaking for us. Ohio is our home and this festival means so much to us and we know it means a lot to you, as well. We held out as long as we could and worked extremely hard to find a way to make Inkcarceration happen this year – including exploring the possibility of a fall festival – but with the uncertainty of COVID-19, we must put the safety of fans, workers, and bands first and follow the advice of health officials.

Rest assured that festivals WILL come back and Inkcarceration isn’t going anywhere. Mark your calendars for our return on July 16, 17 & 18 in 2021! We will be getting to work right away to provide you all with the best Inkcarceration Festival yet. Thanks for your support and we can’t wait to see you all at a much-needed INK family meeting next July!”

All ticket refund options will be posted on the Inkcarceration‘ website and emailed to ticket purchasers this Monday, May 4 at noon EDT. As stated above, next year’s edition of the festival has been booked for July 16th-18th.
