The Gathering of the Juggalos (The Gathering or GOTJ) is an annual festival put on by Psychopathic Records, featuring performances by the entire label roster as well as numerous well-known musical groups and underground artists.
It was founded by Insane Clown Posse (Joseph Bruce and Joseph Utsler), and Jumpsteady, and their label in 2000.
Described by Joseph Bruce as a “Juggalo Woodstock“, the Gathering of the Juggalos spans multiple days and includes concerts, wrestling, games, contests, autograph sessions, karaoke, and seminars with artists.
This year it will take place at 230-acre Legend Valley, about 30 miles east of Columbus, Ohio.
Slick Rick, KRS-One, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Onyx, Large Professor and Egyptian Lover are among the ’80s and ’90s rappers in the lineup.
They’ll be joined by Detroiters Esham and Babytron, ICP producer Mike E. Clark, DJ collective The X-Ecutioners, rock bands Mushroomhead and Steel Panther and more at the four-day festival.
The always-eclectic carnival of madness will host costume contests, karaoke, an ICP-led sasquatch hunt, a 5K run, live podcasts, helicopter rides, artist seminars, a haunted house attraction, raves, foam parties, graffiti contests, movie screenings, memorabilia auctions, a Juggalo wedding and more.
