The Annual Gathering of the Juggalos Infomercial Has Arrived!

0

This year’s annual Gathering of the Juggalos will be the Insane Clown Posse-hosted event’s 20th. While it’d be easy to say, “Holy crap, already?? I feel old,” as undoubtedly many have, my reaction was the opposite: “That’s all?” It feels as if these yearly Juggalo hoedowns have been around since the beginning of time — before the year 2000, in any case — and I can’t believe this is only the 20th one given how quickly they reached Cultural Institution status. I’m not being facetious!

With the lineup announcement comes an infomercial, the unveiling of which has become a celebratory event even for those of us not attending the festival. This year’s cinematic delight delivers once again with cheesy green-screen effects, intentionally exaggerated acting and a ham-fisted plot, once again summoning that very special feel of a public access TV show. I only watched about five minutes and that was plenty, but congratulations are in order if you can make it through the entire half hour.

Have a gander below. Full lineup posted underneath the embed with tickets and more info available here. This year’s lineup will again feature some metal and metal-adjacent acts including Gwar, Butcher Babies, Mushroomhead and Mac Sabbath, although the band I’d be most stoked to see is C+C Music Factory (!).
