Juggalos are the name attributed to the followers of the rap duo Insane Clown Posse (ICP) and often don clown faces and outfits for their get togethers.

ICP was formed in the early 1990s by Violent J, real name Joseph Bruce, and Shaggy 2 Dope, real name Joseph Utsler.

The name Juggalos reportedly came from the 1992 ICP song entitled The Juggla.

ICP runs a music label called Psychopathic Records and also orchestrates the Gathering, now in its 22nd year.

Legend Valley, Ohio, is the site of the festival and has more than 130 acres of grounds — including a new 10-acre campground, according to the Juggalo Gathering website.

The theme of the festival is The Gathering of Dreams.

It’s been billed as “the greatest family reunion in the world” and claims to be the longest-running independent rap festival in the world, according to the website.

The website lists a handful of rules that ban golf carts, minibikes and motorized vehicles “due to safety-related issues that have been encountered at gatherings in the past”.

Fireworks are also not allowed as there are many trees on the festival site.

Despite rules and regulations like these, there have been a few glitches in the history of festivals.

DRUGS AND DEATH AND FAYGO

The Gathering has made headlines a number of times since its inception in 2000 for a variety of reasons including drug overdoses and rowdy behavior.

Cory Collins, 24, died at the festival in 2013 after complaining about not being well.

Collins had reportedly visited a “drug bridge” notorious at the gathering.

The bridge was a marketplace for various recreational drugs used during the festival.

And while there had been reports of drug overdoses at previous festivals, this year’s death of Collins closed the drug bridge.

In 2017, eight people were arrested while the festival was taking place in Oklahoma City.

Some of the arrests were drug-related, according to FOX25.

Michael Schintgen, 28, was arrested with marijuana possession, drug paraphernalia and hundreds of dollars, the outlet reports.

Two people were arrested for illegally setting off firecrackers.

The festival generally concludes with a performance by the ICP, where the crowd is spritzed with Faygo, a popular Midwestern soda pop.

HISTORY OF THE ICP

Formed in Detroit in the early 1990s, ICP is known for creating its own musical universe known as Dark Carnival.

Characters featured on each of the duo’s albums have their own history within the Dark Carnival.

Some of the characters are Ringmaster, the Great Milenko and The Amazing Jeckel Brothers.

Music in the Dark Carnival, while violent, is intended to serve as a metaphor for systematic oppression, insiders reported.

Juggalos claim they do not condone violence.

Instead, they have said repeatedly that their community is about love and peace.

In fact, the clown-esque face painting and even spray-painting of Faygo, which is known to dominate the festival, is intended to help members of the community grow closer together.

NON-TRADITIONAL GEAR

Despite the fact that ICP’s fan base has existed for decades, the Juggalos remain intriguing to the rest of society.

In 2011, the FBI designated the Juggalo community as a non-traditional gang as part of its National Gang Threat Assessment.

During this assessment, the FBI determined that there are approximately 1 million people who identify as juggalos and juggalettes, or female juggalos.

ICP, the Juggalos and even the ACLU have filed lawsuits challenging this designation.

But the duo have continued to host the festival and make music.

“We love it,” Violent J told The Daily Beast.

“We’re the most hated band in the world, that’s our claim to fame.”

The US Sun has reached out to festival organizers and the Thornville, Ohio police force for comment.
