2023 is going to be a big year for Pantera. The band has been added as a headliner to yet another music event.

The newly formed Pantera will headline the 2023 Inkcarceration Music and Tattoo Festival, which is set for July 14-16 at the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, Ohio. The three-day event will also feature a collection of other headliners and additional rock and metal acts, which have yet to be announced. The festival website states that the rest of the lineup will be “coming soon.”

The reincarnated Pantera brings together Zakk Wylde and Charlie Benante, along with classic members Philip Anselmo and Rex Brown.

Even though Pantera is the only act announced so far, 2023 Inkcarceration tickets are already available. Several ticket options are available, but the four-pack weekend general admission offer is currently sold out. For more ticket information, go here.

As previously reported, Pantera have been tapped to open for select dates of Metallica's 2023 worldwide tour.
