BAD NEWS CONFIRMED ON JUGGALOGATHERING.COM: Gathering of the Juggalos NOT going to be held in Kaiser, Missouri

1780700_255453311294724_679573715_n

Over at the official Gathering of the Juggalos website, it has been announced that do to petitions & the media hounding the owners of Harlequin Park in Kaiser, Missouri, they have decided to pull the plug & back out of letting the Gathering happen on their property. Psychopathic Records says they are not holding any grudges & do not blame the owners of Harlequin Park & they also said they have a plain B. They will refund all tickets. The Gathering WILL NOT be cancelled, I don’t know where they are going to hold it, we will just have to wait & see. As soon as we get more info, we will keep y’all posted.

Here’s the official word:

The 15th Annual Gathering of the Juggalos Is Moving…But NOT Cancelled!

First of all, we at Psychopathic Records want to apologize to all the Juggalos as we announce that the owners of the campground that we have dubbed Harlequin Park in Kaiser,Missouri have decided to not allow the Gathering to take place on their property. This was a hard decision for the people of Harlequin Park and they did not make it lightly.

Before we get into the details of what happened, we want to assure everyone who bought tickets/passes/campsites that their money will be refunded in full. We plan to work day and night to refund every last ticket promptly so please bear with us.

We also want to add that the owners of the campground did not have a problem with the Gathering being held on their property and have mad love for all people, including Juggalos. We have been working with them to make sure this was going to be one of the greatest Gatherings ever and they have been nothing but supportive, kind hearted and open minded. They also fully understood what the Gathering was and were fully willing to welcome us with open arms (after all, this is the same spot that hosts a biker rally every year).

However, after we signed the contract and announced the location of the Gathering, some of the people that lived in the surrounding community began to raise hell. Not all of them, mind you, but enough to bring a lot of heat to the owners of the campground. Not only that, they also experienced a media blitz and their phones would not stop ringing. This was no doubt amplified because of the recent lawsuit filed against the FBI by Psychopathic Records and the ACLU for wrongly accusing the Juggalos of being a gang, as well as the reports of last year’s Gathering losing money. Some people in the community where the Gathering was to be held must have believed the nonsense because they kept saying a “gang” was coming to their town and we heard reports that some people were starting to arm themselves. Unbelievable!

Because of this, the owners of Harlequin Park were getting non-stop calls from angry neighbors and some even stopped by their property threatening to boycott their campground and even started a petition against them.  It was just too much of an onslaught of negative energy coming at them for them to handle. They endured the unendurable and suffered the insufferable to the point that they couldn’t take it anymore and decided to pull the plug. We want to add that we at Psychopathic Records hold no resentment toward the people of the campground. They really tried to make this work but with threat of their business suffering long after we have left, it’s understandable why they chose to do what they did. There was no way to prepare for how much attention this was going to get and how negatively some people were going to react to the Gathering coming to their town.

So … we DO have a plan B. Since we first realized that things were shaky with the campground, we have been aggressively looking into other areas to hold the Gathering and have a couple places already lined up. Now we realize that for some the news of the Gathering being moved is going to be a major setback.  It’s even sadder because the ticket sales this year have far surpassed those of the past several Gatherings. Apparently it was the right spot, the right time and the right mix of flavor because practically everyone and their momma was going to attend.

We are now hard at work to make sure there is a new location locked in soon and even as the forces that be continue to oppress us and try to thwart the Juggalo community at every turn … we will endure. Even as close-minded people threaten us and accuse us of being less than human and close the gates in our face … we will march through. Even as they try to keep us from gathering as we do each year for our epic family reunion and people cry and complain … we will prevail. It has always been the Juggalo way to never bow down to the oppressors and to continue on, no matter the obstacles we face. Bear with us a while longer and we will soon be announcing a home for this year’s Gathering of the Juggalos.

Again, we apologize to all Juggalos for any inconvenience this may have caused you and we will strive hard to make this right.

So there you have it.  It’s a bad situation, but like J said in our recent interview, even if the Gathering is in his backyard, it WILL happen.  I plan on being there regardless of where it is!  I hope all of you who were planning to attend feel the same way.  We’ll keep you posted!

    Damn that sucks large, but I did notice quite a few posts in the last week or two from Juggalos in that region who thought it was destined to be a one time spot because it was too nice of an area. They should do the Australian Gathering this Summer, I’ll fly my ass over there

    As Scruffy said, this is our fault. The reputation that Juggalos have isn’t good and unfortunately there aren’t enough people doing enough to change it.

    It’s disappointing, but I understand why it happened.what confuses me is that the town is cool with biker rallys but not juggalos.

    @Ohmisterpabbit
    Bikers are family friendly “clubs”, were a criminal organization with the intent to rape and pillage every village we come across.

    in reality though they have been around much much longer so people are familiar and more comfortable with a group of bikers than a bunch of weird people with painted faces listening to rap music, with a far from great reputation that predecease them. i understand it perfectly, and the only thing we can do is change there twisted view of us by being good active citizens in you community. sounds a little faggy i know but that’s all i can see helping us. this lawsuit isn’t gonna change minds the way some of you seem to think it will.

    @stretchSquiggles

    I completely forgot that we are supposed to rape and pillage when we go places, I must have skipped that part of the manual.

    In all seriousness I agree completely about setting a good example, I’ve been trying to do just that for the last few years it’s been a little tough lately due to personal issues. But I was involved in community sustained agriculture for a few years, and have been trying to find other volunteer organisations to get involved with.

    Damn thats fuckd up! I never been to the gathering but i would love to go though. I was always broke with no transportation and ticket $… Exactly, its most juggalos that determine our reputation and disrepute it. If we really stood for respect, unity, love, and most importantly FAMILY, then in the first we wouldnt be on drugs or alchohol, or any of that self inflicted nonsense. If its true love for the FAMILY then u wouldnt need any kind of substances to help feel the vibe or the fun, and u wouldnt be destroying or deteriorating your Brothers and Sisters mentally or physically and spiritually. This shit seriously aint for easy maniplutative brainwashed minds! Horrorcore supports this BULLSHIT, i construe it everywhere! Murdering for no reason or purpose is just contributing to society’s service and the governments plan. And i despise it when the media entitles ICP as a horrorcore genre, its Wicked Shit! I be screaming Wicked Shit, FUCK HORRORCORE! Haha! Anyways, in conclusion, negativety is nothing but hindrances to a positive assiduity, otherwise learn how to alchemize it into positivety! Its the unveiling Ninja’s! Walk Into The Light!

    Ninjas its really simple. J alluded to it in the recent bomb ass Faygoluver’s interview with Scottie D. People fear what they don’t understand, and many people can’t understand the magical connection that exists between all true Juggalos. As J said, even the FBI couldn’t understand that shit, so they just slapped the word gang on us.

    I have an idea. Where ever the Gathering ends up being. How about a bunch of Juggalos go a day before the Gathering or stay a day after and do community service in the town that the Gathering is held in. If enough Juggalos chip in and show the town some love and do some good, maybe that will get some media attention as to how all Juggalos aren’t criminals and drug addicts. We as Juggalos are the ones responsible to change the way we are viewed by some of these close minded people.

    UniversalEnemy, ICP has a song about killing children for no reason. It’s called boogie woogie woo. Don’t try to justify it, really just get off the juggalo pedestal and shut the fuck up. Especially with that “wicked shit” thing, Esham created the wicked shit and he raps about killing innocent people too. If this is a family then why the fuck are you judging people who choose to use drugs for a good time instead of accepting them for who they are. And that goes to all of you stupid fake fuckers who want to do community service just so people can stop hating on you. Do community service because you want to, not because you are afraid of what people think, it’s like a politician publicly donating money right before the elections. I say nobody change for anybody, I say that if you want to change, do it for you and not for a bunch of stupid fucks that are scared of clowns. The biggest reason I don’t really relate to the culture anymore. “wah wah, people don’t accept us so contrary to how much we claim we don’t give a fuck what they think lets go against some of the root things we preach such as being yourself and not giving a fuck and start giving a fuck and doing things we wouldn’t regularly do so people will stop hating us and on top of that lets isolate and reject other people that don’t follow our own contradictory foot steps”

    What did Psychopathic honestly expect to happen after writing tens of thousands of dollars worth of bounced checks to a place thats been good enough to tolerate their bullshit for this long? They killed the Gathering last year with that stale tactic.the future of psychopathic is as clear as it is bleak. Just enjoy the ride till the wheels fall off, folks.

    @ Lucem Ferre
    First of all, i know your introductory. Secondly, i ain’t judging, you can interpret it the way you want to, BUT let me elucidate it, what i”m saying is that we need to take responsibility as a FAMILY. Ignore what the media and the community think about us, they will never change but altercate and befoul our love for one another, they are too addled to even comprehend our cohesion. The corruption in the mainstream is now making its way into the underground, i construe it man, we stand for the truth, we have to preserve it with a bulwark. We cant change for no one, but for ourselves, i respect that, but if a homie is doing something to dilapidate their corporality, then whats the reason or purpose, talk to them, thats why we are FAMILY.

    My family doesn’t talk to me much because regardless of me being one of the only sober ones that doesn’t back stab people in my family I’m still the burden and the unwanted one in it.

    So fuck a family.

    That’s really how I feel about family, all family, hell people in general.

    @scruffy that was fucking hilarious
    @universalenemy contrary to popular belief, using big words–especially using them wrong, does not make you look smarter. You sound kind of lime a straight edge militant southern preacher with these rants of yours. I mean honestly, down talking juggalos for doing drugs? Ok sure, hard drugs are fucking retarded, but then talking shit about alcohol too? Are you in fucking AA something? Or a recovering smack head? I like the idea of getting juggalos to quit acting a fucking FOOL every damn where we go but that doesn’t mean quit being ourselves. That means realizing our actions affect others and respecting the fact that if we’re gonna be crazy belligerent assholes then that’s the reputation we’re gonna have and it’s our own fault.
    @lucem sounds like your family is dildos. You shouldnt let that make you hate humanity, or all families everywhere either.

    Wow. This is just…wow. Hard to believe that in this modern age, small minded haters/bigots still can influence people and events so easily. Scruffy has a point however. Our behaviors in the past & present aren’t all that appealing to others: in particular, potential GOTJ location campground owners. But hell, there are lots of positive Lo’s and Lette’s out there, and lots of positive things within the Juggalo community. The fucking media just chooses to focus on the negatives instead. But even so, why are we being descriminated against for partying hard and raising hell? People, (non juggalos too) party hard and fuck shit up as well. It’s just bullshit. I don’t blame the Harle Quin owners. They sounded like cool people. Just everyone else there wasn’t. 2014 hasn’t started off very well for Psychopathic. Which REALLY SUCKS because 2013 sucked balls, even ICP themselves said so.

    I agree with the lo that said they should buy their own land. Good idea ninja. They gotta find a piece of land where all us los and lettes can travel an equal distance within the country; and those traveling to this country for the Gathering will STILL be able to get there. Some juggalos I know suggest somewhere in PA, but I think it should be where all those going can get to it.
