Iggy and the Stooges? The Offspring? Yep, those are the two big names headlining this year's Ink-N-Iron festival, which will once again take the Queen Mary by storm. From June 7 to 9, the festival will feature on both the ship itself and at the adjacent park some freakin' badass groups.
Friday night will be headlined by Sublime With Rome, but also features a pretty deep lineup including the iconic D.C. hardcore outfit Bad Brains, the Growlers, He's Brother She's My Sister, rockabilly legend Wanda Jackson and many more.
Iggy and the Stooges lead Saturday's bill (along with reinstated guitarist James Williamson), which is filled out by Crypt, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, and–wait for it–the Dead Kennedys!
Sunday not only has the Offspring, but also features such classic bands as NOFX, the Stranglers, the Sharks and the Matadors, among others.
Tickets are currently $60 per day, but that will change closer to the event. If you want to snag a three-day pass, you'll have to throw down $180. If you really are a baller, VIP Gold access costs $100 per day, or $300 for the weekend, but there are only 500 of those available. If that's not enough, VIP Platinum wristbands are $150 each, or $450 for the weekend. There are only 250 of those, so if you want one, you better make moves NOW.
Check the festival's website for more info and the full lineup.
