Insane Clown Posse find new home for Gathering Of The Juggalos festival
Insane Clown Posse have found a new home for their Gathering Of The Juggalos festival, according to Consequence Of Sound.

The event was held Illinois for seven years before being banned and planning to move to Missouri. Petitions against the festival, however, meant that Insane Clown Posse had to find another new home for it. They've now announced the event will take place in Ohio, at the Legend Valley venue Thornville.

In the wake of the petitions against the bash being held in Missouri, Insane Clown Posse wrote in a statement on their website: "First of all, we at Psychopathic Records want to apologize to all the Juggalos as we announce that the owners of the campground that we have dubbed Harlequin Park in Kaiser, Missouri have decided to not allow the Gathering to take place on their property. This was a hard decision for the people of Harlequin Park and they did not make it lightly."

They continued: "[...A]fter we signed the contract and announced the location of the Gathering, some of the people that lived in the surrounding community began to raise hell. Not all of them, mind you, but enough to bring a lot of heat to the owners of the campground. Not only that, they also experienced a media blitz and their phones would not stop ringing. This was no doubt amplified because of the recent lawsuit filed against the FBI by Psychopathic Records and the ACLU for wrongly accusing the Juggalos of being a gang, as well as the reports of last year's Gathering losing money. Some people in the community where the Gathering was to be held must have believed the nonsense because they kept saying a "gang" was coming to their town and we heard reports that some people were starting to arm themselves. Unbelievable!

So … we DO have a plan B. Since we first realized that things were shaky with the campground, we have been aggressively looking into other areas to hold the Gathering and have a couple places already lined up. Now we realize that for some the news of the Gathering being moved is going to be a major setback. It’s even sadder because the ticket sales this year have far surpassed those of the past several Gatherings. Apparently it was the right spot, the right time and the right mix of flavor because practically everyone and their momma was going to attend."

The Gathering Of The Juggalos will take place between July 23-26.
