New Gathering of the Juggalos location LOCKED IN AND CONFIRMED! TICKETS Will GO ON SALE THIS MONDAY, MARCH 3rd!
They tried to shut us down. They tried to oppress us, censor us and cast us out. They did everything in their power to disrupt a yearly tradition that has become a pilgrimage for thousands of people all over the world. But they FAILED! Because we NOW HAVE A NEW LOCATION 100% LOCKED IN.
The NEW and IMPROVED home of the Gathering of the Juggalos:
This beautiful location is just east of Columbus and it’s a privately owned 120 acre property that is concert friendly and has plenty of room for everyone to camp out to make this a truly 24-hour event. There is also going to be great cell phone reception, Wi-Fi internet connection and hotels that are only 15 mins away! It is truly the perfect spot for this year’s Gathering!
We have also already locked in several key artists for this year including the complete Psychopathic roster of Insane Clown Posse, ABK, Boondox, Big Hoodoo, Dark Lotus, Psychopathic Rydas, AMB, Legz Diamond and the Purple Gang, Mike E Clark and DJ Clay. We also have confirmed at this time Twiztid and Blaze! There are many more artists to follow and this is only the very beginning of the entire flavor that will be in store this year.
TICKETS GO ON SALE (along with the re-launch of the website) MONDAY, MARCH 3rd AT 7 P.M. EST (Eastern Standard Time) AT WWW.JUGGALOGATHERING.COM!
This is indeed proof that the Dark Carnival works in mysterious and wonderful ways, ninjas. Mere hours after the news begin spreading that Kaiser, Missouri would not welcome the Juggalo Family, we began receiving phone calls and emails from interested land owners and promoters who wanted to help ensure that the Gathering of the Juggalos found a home. One of the calls we got was from a down ass ninja named Steve who owns the Legend Valley.
Steve has actually been to the Gathering of the Juggalos before and is not buying into the media’s portrayal of what the Gathering is because he has been there. He has expressed to us that he is super down to host the Gathering this year and has always found Juggalos to be cool ass people. He also believes in our fight alongside the ACLU to have Juggalos removed from the FBI gang list. In other words, he has our backs and is the perfect ninja we needed to ensure an awesome, trouble-free Gathering this year.
Another great thing about this location is that it’s near Columbus where we have had countless shows (including the recent Great Milenko Show at the Newport) and the people and police are very familiar with Juggalos and know that we are just people like everyone else. Therefore, there shouldn’t be anywhere near the reaction that we received in Kaiser because we have a long standing history with Columbus and its people. We have been accepted into their home before to do concerts, wrestling events and shows and this is no different.
So put in your vacation requests at your job NOW for July 23rd – 26th and tell your boss “See ya later! I’m going to my Juggalo family reunion!” And get those Internet browsers ready on Monday night…because at 7 p.m. EST at www.juggalogathering.com … the fuse for the powder keg that will be the 15th Annual Gathering of the Juggalos will get ignited! AND THIS TIME THERE’S NO STOPPING US!

Limited Edition, Collector’s Item T-Shirts Help the Family of a Fallen Juggalo!
Juggalos, by now you’ve heard about the sold out Aaron Spencer Benefit Show that ICP is throwing in Dayton, Ohio on March 15. All proceeds from this special one-off concert go to the family of the late, great Aaron Spencer, who recently entered Shangri-la after a long illness. All funds raised will help pay off Aaron’s medical and funeral expenses. At the concert, there will be a special commemorative T-shirt honoring Aaron’s memory. The back of the shirt reads “I Was There Because I Care” and will ONLY be available at the show. This is certain to become one of the rarest and most collectable shirts ever put out by Psychopathic because it’s going to be sold for one night only!
But the Juggalo Family has some of the biggest hearts imaginable and many of you have called and written, asking how you can help the Spencer family, even if you can’t attend the show in Dayton. Well, you will have your chance by purchasing an exclusive Aaron Spencer Memorial shirt on Hatchet Gear, made especially for those ninjas who will be at the show in spirit. The back of this shirt reads “My Heart Was There Because I Care” and will go on sale at Hatchet Gear on March 15, the same day as the Aaron Spencer Benefit Show. The shirt will be only be available for one month with proceeds from all Aaron Spencer Benefit Show shirts (both at the show and through HatchetGear) going to his family.
So circle March 15 on your calendar (or enter it on your ‘Reminders’ app on your smartphone) and get ready to purchase a devastating shirt for an even more devastating cause!
Hey, Juggalos! This month I sat down with one of the main musical architects at Psychopathic Records…Kuma. From directing videos to crafting beats to manning the soundboard in the Lotus Pod, Kuma is one of the most important behind-the-scenes ninjas at Psychopathic. But as I discovered, there’s more to this talented man than just producing the wicked shit. Much, much more.
You’re a worker extraordinaire at Psychopathic Records, meaning you do many different things, so let’s start at the beginning. You’re Michigan born and bred. Where did you grow up?
So you’re an East Sider. Did you go to college here in Michigan?
You’ve done both video work and studio work for Psychopathic. Which do you prefer doing?
Before we get into the music, I want to get into wrestling for a minute because Psychopathic is synonymous with wrestling. You have a really incredible background in wrestling. Can you tell us about that?
And your father is also an author and has published a couple photo books?
What was your wrestling name?
Some people have sex tapes floating around, you have wrestling tapes out there so somebody needs to go on the Internet and find them (laughs). So after your wrestling career ended, how’d you end up doing music? Who were some of your musical influences?
What was the most memorable concert experience you had when you were young?
What year did you start working with Psychopathic?
How did you set foot into Psychopathic Records and what made you do it?
That’s funny because now you practically run the Lotus Pod and at first you couldn’t even see it.
What was it like meeting Violent J and Shaggy for the first time?
Something I’ve always observed about you is that you have this quiet confidence about you. You’re not boastful or loud and I think it speaks to your longstanding place here at Psychopathic. You’re a producer, a video director, a musician and here you are still working at Psychopathic. You’ve never changed.
I know you’re super professional and a hard worker but there have been times when I’ve walked into the office and asked “Where’s Kuma?” and they say “He’s in Ibiza.” So I want you to tell everybody about your DJ career. You are very successful and are known worldwide. What’s that like?
So they call your agent, you’re at work Friday, you fly across the world and then you come back to work at Psychopathic on Monday. What’s that like? You’re so grounded.
I just wanna say on the record that Kuma is an incredible beat master. So tell us about your label so people can look you up online.
