Gathering of the Juggalos 2021 to Feature All the Best Bands
Insane Clown Posse’s Gathering of the Juggalos returns in 2021 after taking a year off due to the pandemic. I stress that last point only to let you know that you’re still anti-vaxx and anti-mask at this point, you are dumber than a Juggalo.
In the past, the organizers of the Gathering have managed to rope in some great bands who are much more, uh… open-minded about people, I guess?… than some of us: Cannibal Corpse, GWAR, Fear Factory, Suicide Silence, etc.
Unfortunately, things didn’t work out so good for the fest’s big comeback. I’m not even kidding when I say the most interesting performers on the bill are Kid ‘n Play, a Cardi B parody act, the third-most-famous cast member of Jackass, and the dude from To Catch a Predator.
The metal artists booked, certainly, are a joke, better known for their slavish adherence to bad gimmicks and terribly-conceived PR stunts than they are for their music.
Also, this nitwit:
The more times I hear that song, the more I become convinced that it is essential to any discussion of The Worst Music Ever Composed.
August 19-21 at Legend Valley in Thornville, OH. A partial line-up is below (via Lambgoat); you can see the entire bill here. Scroll down to the bottom of the post to watch the annual Gathering infomercial, which is probably the most entertaining thing about the fest.
