This August 7th-11th, the 14th annual Gathering of the Juggalos is to take place in Cave-In-Rock, Illinois. The 5 day festival will feature some big name acts, including Vanilla Ice (really?), Twiztid, Kottonmouth Kings, and of course, Insane Clown Posse.
Not content with a simple lineup announcement, though, the clown-painted duo donned ill-fitting suits and pretended to be news anchors for a 28-minute informercial. Although the two are longtime professional performers, neither of them seem to be very prepared for public speaking, which leads me to believe the make-up on their faces is lead-based.
Although I can typically stand anything the internet has to throw at me, after a few mind-numbing minutes of watching this, I tapped out. We've compiled the full lineup of musicians to play the festival, in case you can't sit through the whole thing either. The bands will be joined by a slew of wrestlers, comedians (headlined by Charlie Murphy), and other performers of a questionable nature. Tickets and full festival information available here.
In case you don't know what to expect from the festival, check out Driven By Boredom's shots from last year, some of which are NSFW. The photos are, unsurprisingly, insane.
Also, be sure to check out the documentary "American Juggalo." It will answer any questions you still have.
