2018 marked the first year of the Inkcarceration Festival in lovely Mansfield, OH at the Ohio State Reformatory. This year was the testing to see if future events would take place on this beloved grounds. Friday brought Headliners Rise Against and A Day to Remember, and legendary artist Life of Agony. Saturday brought a more thorough setting for bands which were BUSH, Our Lady Peace, Living Color, and Alien Ant Farm. Sunday brought the heavy hitters and with Black Label Society, Clutch, Hatebreed, Sevendust, Suicidal Tendencies, Corrosion of Conformity, Devildriver, Soil and The Convalescence.
The weather was like walking through the pits of hell. Seemed like it was over 100 degrees and no place to hide. That did not bother the fans who were there in droves to witness this event and to also have the opportunity to get tatted up as well as getting a tour of the famous reformatory. If you have seen these bands in the past you know that there were all on fire back then and this was no different now.
Hope that this becomes an annual event and thanks to all that made this event possible.
