On Saturday, July 26th we crossed one off the bucket list and attended The Gathering of the Juggalos. If you’re unfamiliar, its an annual festival curated by Psychopathic Records the brain trust of the Insane Clown Posse and organizers of Juggalos worldwide.

What’s a Juggalo? If you were to ask someone with any sort of sensibility, a Juggalo may best be described as a member of the Insane Clown Posse’s fan club. However, according to FBI dipshits, they are somehow categorized as a gang.

Anyways, if you absolutely need an accurate visual, here’s some guy’s aerial drone footage from Saturday afternoon.

While we can’t say we thoroughly “enjoyed” ourselves, we do have a new found respect for all parties involved as we received a crash course in Juggalo culture. What did we learn?

5. Use the buddy system. According to Trevor, “getting separated from you guys was the most terrifying 90 seconds of my fucking life.”

4. Juggalos think breasts and vaginas make great decor.

3. It’s hardly about the music. Just like Coachella and Lollapalooza attendees are primarily there to see, be seen and experiment with lots of happy time drugs.

2. Bring cash and beer. Little did we know there were no legitimate beer vendors at The Gathering, a fact that many enterprising Juggalos skillfully take advantage of.

1. Jesus Loves Juggalos. Ok, this can’t technically be confirmed, but The Insane Clown Posse certainly does. The most shocking moment of our experience came during a town hall style meeting in which Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope let Juggalo’s vote on a themed cruise. Some thought it was lame, while others brought up the expense of a cruise and the assumed socioeconomic condition of the Juggalo demographic. Very admirable.
