For over 10 years the Insane Clown Posse and Psychopathic Records has put on a giant music festival for their fans in the middle of nowhere called The Gathering of The Juggalos. Juggalos and Juggalettes make what can only be described as a pilgrimage every summer to spend four days camping in the woods, partying, and watching performances.
This festival is unlike any other major music festival in the US. It is cheap, you bring your own food, alcohol, and drugs, and there are no corporate sponsors. Compare that to Coachella, Bonaroo, or Lollapalooza and you have something unique and special that has flown under the radar of most of America for over a decade.
