7 summer music festivals you won’t want to miss

The appetite for live music is beyond measure right now — fans are clearly ravenous.

The Inkcarceration Music and Tattoo Festival (inkcarceration.com) that will be held at the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield on Sept. 10-12 this year sold out some time ago.

Organizers of the three-day festival with headliners Slipknot, Mudvayne and Rob Zombie announced on May 6 that the show was officially sold out almost five months prior to the event, calling it the “biggest year yet.”

With Interstates 70 and 75 running through our city, there are plenty of good options that are just a road trip away for live music festivals this summer. Here are some of the highlights of what’s out there worthy of a few tanks of gas and the ticket.
