The Gathering of the Juggalos Sees Steve-O, Chris Hansen, and a Horde of Loopy Clowns Take Over Ohio

2 min read


The Insane Clown Posseโ€™s annual Gathering of the Juggalos made headlines in April of 2020 when it was one of many first festivals to be canceled resulting from COVID-19, leaving the hip-hop groupโ€™s clown-faced followers crestfallen.

This previous weekend, the competition returned to Legend Valley in Thornville, Ohio, with what they referred to as โ€œa barely scaled-down model of the Gathering.โ€ Whereas the completely outside competition could have been smaller, it didnโ€™t look a lot completely different than in earlier years, given the truth that juggalos (the followers of ICP, who typically cosplay as clowns) have been sporting masks lengthy earlier than it was commonplaceโ€”albeit of the terrifying clown selection.

Whereas among the star-studded occasions and sideshows had been noticeably lacking, you continue to had Jackass crew member Steve-O setting his hair on hearth seconds earlier than he launched ICP to the stage, and former To Catch a Predator host Chris Hansen giving a seminar in regards to the evils of pedophilia. As all the time, nostalgia took middle stage, with Child โ€™n Play bringing the home occasion to the juggalos, and Vanilla Ice rapping on stage with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (it was Michelangelo, for the report). ICP headlined two of the festโ€™s three nights, whereas Ouija Maccโ€”an artist on ICPโ€™s label Psychopathic Dataโ€”headlined Friday.

The Gathering is a time the place โ€œinsane clownsโ€ come from all around the nation to occasion with their โ€œhousehold,โ€ and after a 12 months and a half of sitting at house you would see the enjoyment radiate off the faces of juggalos and musicians alike. Greater than something, I witnessed Juggalos hugging one another all weekend; at one level, rapper Whitney Peyton needed to take a second between songs to cease and recognize what it meant for her to be again on stage once more. Regardless of the whole lot, COVID-19 and the smaller lineup couldnโ€™t cease the mayhem and jubilation of the Gathering of the Juggalos. Whoop whoop.
