Ten things you need to know about the Gathering of the Juggalos

Ten things you need to know about the Gathering of the Juggalos

Juggalos and Jack White
The 'Gathering of the Juggalos' sounds like a horror movie, and depending on who you are, it kind of is. If you're a Juggalo (a dedicated fan of Insane Clown Posse or any Psychopathic Records group) it's a lovely way for self-appointed outcasts to paint their faces, meet up for a wild weekend of music, and if you're lucky, see some boobs.

Need further information? Here is a 23 minute infomercial!

If you're not a Juggalo, it may seem like a terrifying Texas Chainsaw Massacre level nightmare, where masked men and women engage in violence, public nudity, and seemingly satanic rituals (with a violence worshiping hardcore soundtrack).

But it's wrong to make assumptions about people right? How else would Captain Von Trapp and Sister Maria have fallen in love, gotten married and fled the Nazis if they hadn't taken the time to get to know each other? Juggalos fucking love Sound of Music references.

Juugalo love

Here are ten things you need to know about the Gathering of the Juggalos:

1. Juggalos love to rush things.
The first Gathering of the Juggalos took place in a convention center in Michigan, in which the Insane Clown Posse invited fans to rush the stage while they performed. The venue's management didn't like that, and they were never invited back again.

2. Juggalos love Vanilla Ice.
He has performed at nearly all the Gathering of the Juggalos events. And they pay him!

3. Juggalettes love to get naked, and get mad when they're not allowed.
At the third Gathering, police released tear gas and pepper balls (?) into the crowd to dissuade Juggalettes from flashing them "SPRING BREAK!" style. The festival organisers negotiated with police, and 30 minutes later the party continued. Get Vanilla Ice back on the stage!

4. Juggalos sometimes like good music.

Ol' Dirty Bastard played at the Gathering before he died (from non-Juggalo causes) and Bone Thugs-n-Harmony first reunited at the 2004 festival. Coolio, Ice-T, Busta Rhymes, Geroge Clinton and Ice Cube have also performed. Who knew?

5. Juggalos aren't always welcome.
Brooklyn, Michigan denied the Juggalos every possible permit in 2007 and the festival had to be moved to another place. Unless the Juggalos were going to drink some water and sit quietly, their painted asses weren't welcome in Brooklyn, son!

6. Juggalos don't sleep.
Acts at the Gathering of the Juggalos play for 24 hours. For five days.

7. Juggalos sometimes shock people with how debaucherous they are.

The owner of Quarry Park refused to have the Gathering back, saying "Drugs, alcohol, nudity, profanity and trash became serious problems". The Juggalos said "Have you met Insane Clown Posse?"

8. Juggalos don't like Tila Tequila.
They throw bottles at her :(

9. Juggalos DO like Charlie Sheen.
He hosted one of the nights in 2011! So did Flavor Flav!

10. Juggalos have varied interests.
The Gathering also includes wrestling, helicopter rides, carnival games, and autograph signings. If it wasn't for the hot oil wrestling and absolutely terrifying nature of the Juggalo subculture, you could almost take your grandmother!

This whole subculture has a decidedly Nu Metal stench to it. Fred Durst has to be involved somehow, right?
