NELSON Some other Ohio town will be feeling clown love as the Gathering of the Juggalos, held in Portage Co
past three years, will not return to Nelson Ledges Quarry Park in 2006.
The Gathering made Nelson its home for three years, starting in 2003. However, Quarry Park owner Evan Kelley
Friday that Psychopathic Records, Insane Clown Posse and their fans, the Juggalos, have not been invited back
Rumors about the change began to fly shortly after the 2005 Gathering, when ICPs Violent J said on a
Juggalo Web site that the group was looking to take the 2006 Gathering elsewhere.
More recently, Violent J wrote on http://www.insaneclownposse.com that the 2006 Gathering will be held in a secret,
location near Columbus, Ohio, a move confirmed Friday by attorney Marc Beginin of Detroit, who represented
Psychopathic during the past two gatherings. Beginin had no other official comment.
Kelley said that for three years, the majority of the Juggalos were respectful and friendly, but the mood and actions changed quickly and violently
over time.
The first year was not bad. The second year was questionable, but I thought Well, lets try a third year and see how
And the third year was terrible, just awful, Kelley said, referring to the five-day festival held July 21-25, 2005
Kelley said Psychopathic Records broke some of the rules set down for the 2005 event, including blasting music long into the night.
Neighbors were calling, livid at four in the morning regarding loud music, he said. I was really upset with that, it was
flagrant disrespect to the community and myself. I voiced my opinion that I really didnt want it back, so they looked
elsewhere.
Drugs, alcohol, nudity, profanity and trash also became serious problems, he said.
But the bad side of this group really hurt the few good kids.
The 2005 Gathering of the Juggalos was the sixth such event, and the fourth in Ohio. Previous gatherings were h
Peoria, Ill., where Juggalos clashed with police, and Toledo, where a similar situation unfolded. For three years,
County spent thousands of dollars and hundreds of man-hours corralling the Juggalos inside Quarry Park. In 2005 the promoters sued Psychopathic to recoup police overtime costs.

Kelley, who said the park now will focus more on swimming and camping, said he expects a mixed reaction to the Juggalos departure.
The neighbors will be happy, he said.
It was good and bad, but after the third year it turned a little sour.
We used it (the Gathering) as an opportunity to really better this place, Kelley said. Now its time to cut those guys.

ICP’s Juggalos Riot, Punch Police Horse, Cut Clowns’ Set Short At Fan Convention
Rappers forced to flee own fans at Gathering of the Juggalos in Toledo, Ohio.

OLEDO, Ohio — At the end of their three-day-long fan festival here, the Insane Clown Posse finally met a force more powerful than the Dark Carnival, the shadowy supernatural presence that they say drives them to put on makeup and rap about killing people. That force was their own fans, who brought the Gathering of the Juggalos to a chaotic, Faygo-drenched conclusion Sunday night. Sugary mist from gallons of soda filled the air at the SeaGate Centre as hundreds of fans charged the main stage, forcing ICP’s Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope to flee — and end their set before it even reached the halfway point. As the house lights went on and police in riot gear waited just outside the building, Juggalos — as ICP fans call themselves — tore apart the carnival-themed stage set and destroyed ICP’s sound equipment.

On the concert floor, shirtless, face-painted fans chanted ICP lyrics and sprayed various flavors of Faygo on each other until the area in front of the stage became a soda swamp. ICP manager Alex Abbiss took the stage and chided fans for violating Juggalo etiquette — fans aren’t supposed to destroy the stage until the final song, he reminded them. Abbiss begged Juggalos not to tear up the city of Toledo on their way out. “If they say [you] left and rioted in Toledo, there’ll never be another gathering,” he shouted. Police continued to wait outside by a stage door — tapping riot batons against their hands — but angry fans left more or less in peace, despite cries of “bulls—,” “bulls—.” Outside, police on horseback kept order. “We’ll see you all next year at the gathering of 2002 in Las Vegas, Nevada,” Abbiss said, garnering the festival’s final cheers. The mostly teenage fans at the gathering — approximately 6,600 strong, according to Psychopathic Records — spent the three days attending seminars, listening to music, watching live wrestling matches, getting free tattoos and face paint, and chanting “f— Eminem.” The event’s unwritten dress code called for black ICP T-shirts (preferably emblazoned with an obscenity), hair in brightly colored braids and, ideally, clown makeup. A surprising number of fans wore shirts and even tattoos touting Twiztid, a rap group on ICP’s label who look and sound like ICP’s Mini-Me’s. ICP’s Sunday night performance was supposed to end with the revelation of a key bit of Insane Clown Posse mythology — the “Sixth Joker’s Card.” But fans destroyed the mechanism that the rap duo would have used to reveal the card, whatever it was, according to Abbiss. “I’ve been waiting eight f—ing years to find out what that card is,” moaned Jason Gronos, a 25-year-old Juggalo from Detroit, as he wandered outside after the gathering’s end. “It’s like a big heartbreak.” Numerous Juggalos said they were disappointed with their brethren for cutting ICP’s show short, with many blaming the incident on the group’s youngest fans.

But Jay Diamond, a 26-year-old from Chattanooga, Tennessee, said he was among those who stormed the stage, and that those who did not join him were not real ICP fans. “They’re not hardcore. They’re scared,” he said. Diamond said that ICP should have figured out a way to continue their set despite the chaos. No one was seriously hurt, according to police. A Toledo police spokesperson said that officers arrested one person on Sunday for property destruction, but it was unclear when the arrest occurred. In total, police arrested about 300 juggalo over the course of the event for such crimes as disorderly conduct, vandalism and, memorably, punching a police horse, according to police Sgt. Richard Murphy. A number of rappers on ICP’s Psychopathic Records, along with roadies and hangers-on, got into a large-scale brawl at a hotel adjacent to the event on Saturday night, according to witnesses and police. Murphy said that police made arrests related to the fight, but was unable to provide details. Its ending aside, fans said that they’d had a great time at the Gathering of the Juggalos. The event began on Friday and included performances by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Vanilla Ice and Three 6 Mafia, along with numerous rappers on ICP’s label.

Last year’s inaugural gathering in Novi, Michigan, also ended with fans storming the stage, and a small riot in the parking lot. For the most part, Juggalos were peaceful during this year’s gathering. They did show a strong tendency to greet female fans (Juggalettes) with the cry, “show your t–s,” however. ICP masterminds Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope signed autographs each day, and took fans’ worshipful questions in seminars. In Saturday’s seminar, Violent J even — inexplicably — treated several hundred Juggalos to a hoarse-voiced acoustic rendition of Pearl Jam’s “Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town.” “If I had my way, every day would be a Juggalo gathering,” Violent J told
fans.
