For more than a decade, tattoo convention meets music festival meets hot rod show meets fashion and culture celebration Ink N Iron has been a popular staple of the scene in Long Beach, California. Earlier this year, for the first time ever, the fest announced a 2015 expansion to Nashville, which they fittingly dub “in the land of Elvis and Cash.” Set to take place August 6-9, Ink N Iron will host performances from the likes of Merle Haggard, Coheed & Cambria, Sharon Jones, Suicidal Tendencies, Misfits, Wanda Jackson, Reverend Horton Heat, Jim Lauderdale, Shooter Jennings, and countless other acts (full lineup here) in Bicentennial Mall State Park. Additionally, the weekend boasts a massive tattoo convention at Municipal Auditorium, as well as car and bike shows, performance art, a pin up pageant, tons of vendors, and more! Tickets for the inaugural event are on sale now, and range in options from tattoo convention only to single-day concert tickets to weekend passes.
A four-day music and culture fest in our own backyard? Not a bad way to kick off August. We’re so excited to welcome Ink N Iron to town, that we’ve teamed up with the fest to provide one lucky person a pair of weekend passes. Enter below!
