City Morgue, Alien Haunt, and the Miss Juggalette pageant Announced for the Gathering of the Juggalos!

Over the past few days, we’ve received a few announcements concerning this year’s Gathering of the Juggalos!  The first two may have been expected, but today’s should get all you Gathering-bound ninjas hype as fuck!

The first event that dropped is one that we’re happy to have back!  It’s the haunted attraction, but with alien-themed flavor!  Peep that info below.

ALIEN ENCOUNTER: A SCI-FI HAUNT

It’s time juggalos and juggalettes, from the one who brought you the House of Horrors last year, we present to you a terrifying intergalactic adventure, where you’ll experience firsthand what goes down during an alien invasion. As you step through the doors, you’ll find yourself transported to a world beyond your wildest imagination, where extraterrestrial beings have taken over and are out for blood. The air is thick with tension, and you can feel the presence of something sinister lurking around every corner. As you make your way through this intergalactic attraction, you’ll encounter a series of chilling creatures that are sure to make you question whether you are really still on earth or another planet. Come test your bravery and see if you can survive ALIEN ENCOUNTER!

Next up is the world-famous Miss Juggalette Pageant!  If there’s an annual event that you for sure don’t want to miss out on, it’s this one!  Peep the details here:

MISS JUGGALETTE PAGEANT

It simply wouldn’t be The Gathering of The Juggalos without our annual pageant to crown this year’s Queen of the Underground! This contest is a far cry from your granny’s Miss Wholesome USA Pageant, ours is a sensational celebration for the psycho vixens of The Dark Carnival! True to Juggalo form with all the face paint, wild antics, and extraordinary personalities of the contestants on full display! This iconic contest is comprised of 3 rounds: Personality, Talent & Swimsuit! We don’t need no magic mirror, we leave it up to the Juggalos to decide who’s the wickedest of them all! Think you have what it takes to wear the prestigious sash of Miss Juggalette? Show up early with your A-game and let’s see what you got ninjette!

Prizes: 1st Place – GOTJ Gold Plaque, Backstage Pass, Rare GOTJ Amulet & $300 in cash; 2nd Place – Rare GOTJ Amulet & $200 Gift Certificate; and 3rd Place – Rare GOTJ Amulet & $100 gift certificate.

Those wishing to compete should show up at least 15 minutes before the contest begins and bring their own swimsuit (or comparable attire) with them. A private dressing area will be provided as well as any music needed for the talent round.

Finally, the biggest announcement of the weekend is that we’re getting City Morgue back!  It’s been 4 YEARS since they made their Gathering debut, and I for one am happy to see them back…this time on the MAIN STAGE!  Here’s the info:

CITY MORGUE

Get ready for your wigs to be peeled back because we present to you one of the most requested groups of the past two years! ZillaKami and SosMula are two trap metal titans who bring the fire to the stage as they come out blastin’, with a no-holds-barred assault of anti-authoritarian lyrics over metal-infused beats that’s live and in your face like a head-on car crash! They bring the type of flavor you ain’t gonna be able to sit still for! This is certified pit music, combining cell block aggression, psych ward insanity and the energy of a burning building into a single stage event that threatens to ignite the crowd into an explosive frenzy the likes of which have never been seen! The Gathering has always been the underground’s first home for extreme music, so we are beyond stoked to present to you, the Juggalos…City Morgue!

More announcements will be dropping with the quickness, so stay tuned!

    I doubt Meth will ever be back after what happened yrs ago in Cave In Rock. Sadly I was there for that.

    Throwing shit at Tila Tequila was fun tho. Fuck that stupid bitch.

    Y’all realize PSY doesn’t have money like they used to, right? Y’all realize it probably costs double the amount to even put on the Gathering at a spot like Legend Valley than it did 13 years ago at Cave In Rock?

    You realise they could charge double or triple the ticket price and it’d still sell out? Then they could pay some real artists. Plenty of lesser established festivals have better acts performing.

    I don’t disagree with your logic, but I don’t think they actually sell out all tickets now, or ever have for that matter…? And if they up the prices, I would argue that they would get less attendees. Money is tight for everyone nowadays and money was always tight for the majority of juggalos. Maybe they can lure in “outsiders” with more mainstream acts, and in-turn get a higher ticket price, but is what you would really want to see?

    Idk? One of the most popular underground horrorcore acts (in today’s age) was the first band announced for the Gathering. That’s not a bad start if you ask me. But, in my opinion, the Gathering is way more than who’s on the stage. It’s about connecting with homies and disconnecting from everyday life for a week.

    You’re right. My comment was flippant but rooted in truth. The problem is two fold. They aren’t investing in valuable acts. If they were booking acts people wanted to see, rather than Dog Dick Dave, Robot Rock Band and Scythe Gang 69 they may actually sell out.

    I haven’t been to a gathering in a very long time but I get the feeling it’s more of a circus now where people use it as an excuse to be outrageous or a place where normie YouTube creators go to make a quick, easy video. I don’t see the same atmosphere I experienced and/or I used to see, anymore. (I could be wrong).

    The music did used to be an important part of the gathering and to say it isn’t important, is just making excuses for the lack of effort and investment that goes into bookings these days.

    The other year was supposed to be “The Gathering Of Dreams” where they book all their dream acts. Who’s dreaming of booking Freddie Frog and The Froggy Five or $uperKillerHorrorRapper420?

    The overall effort is lacking these days. Whether it’s the music, the tours, the videos or the gathering. It’s not an opinion, it’s a fact. But if they invested more of everything (time, money and effort) into their shit, they’d expand, rather than plateauing like they have.
