This Year’s Gathering of the Juggalos to Include a Bunch of Terrible Metal Bands
Three out of every four years, The Gathering of the Juggalos is basically guaranteed to be the country’s largest organized meeting of total idiots (the fourth year is the RNC, natch). Even so, the past few years, it’s been a lot harder to make jokes about the fest, what with respectable bands like Cannibal Corpse, GWAR, and Fear Factory all making appearances.
Luckily, this year’s line-up, although not short of metal, is short of bands you’d feel weird about enjoying alongside a grown-up who wears clown make-up and thinks magnets are magic:
- American Grim
- Green Jellÿ
- Kissing Candice
- Miss May I
- September Mourning
- The Browning
- Upon a Burning Body
This is terrific news, because it means we can all go back to making fun of The Gathering and pretending that Juggalos are not actual human beings free of guilt. Also because it means better bands are free to play Juggalo-free shows that weekend. Really, this is as it oughta be.
Here’s this year’s insanely long infomercial for the fest:
