And so the wicked-clown army cannot be stopped. Reality TV star Tila Tequila may've vowed to end the annual "juggalo gathering" after getting rocks, rubber dildos, beer cans, Faygo containers, Stryofoam cups, liquor bottles, cigarettes, mustard, half a lemon, a pizza slice, a pearl bracelet, a pudding cup, part of a watermelon allegedly soaked in feces and urine, a clothed baby doll, a mini Mag Lite, and a bag of chicken tenderloin hurled at her onstage there last summer. But one bruised karoake-rapper apparently can't fight the power of 10,000 face-painted outcasts. Insane Clown Posse has officially confirmed the Gathering of the Juggalos 2011.
For the fifth year in a row, the bacchanal will take place at HogRock campground in Cave-in-Rock, Illinois. The official dates are August 11 to 14, 2011. And the unannounced line-up promises "to knock your fuckin' wigs off!" Best of all, Psychopathic Records isn't trying to bury last year's public-relations debacle--it's a valuable part of the sales pitch. "After all the madness you heard went down at last years Gathering you just fuckin' KNOW that shit is going to be devastating in 2011!" Devastating is right.
