RA The Rugged Man, Lardi B, D-Loc, MORE Announced for the 23rd Annual Gathering of the Juggalos!

There have been a grip of announcements regarding this year’s Gathering of the Juggalos!  There are artists on the Intergalactic (Main) stage, Martion (2nd) stage, GOTJ exclusive events, and so much more!

There are a LOT more coming, and I have it on good authority that there is enough flavor that hasn’t been revealed yet to make daily announcements all the way up to opening day!  Holy shit!

For now though, we don’t want the artists and events posted about in the past week to go overlooked…so peep everything that you can expect to see at Legend Valley in a few short weeks!

R.A. The Rugged Man

What do you get when you take four decades of New York City grit and filter it through the laser-focused lens of a Hip-Hop icon? You get a bona fide legend! So, clear the stage and make way for the return of a legend to The Gathering of the Juggalos: None other than R.A. the Rugged Man with DJ LALA! The man whose mind is one part madhouse and two parts grindhouse, has found a peculiar fellowship with the Juggalos and is once again making it a point to come out and rock with his people! Witness for yourself this rap maverick command the mic with the acute lethality of a gunman in a Peckinpah western with a performance that Gathering myths are literally made of! Come kick it with R.A. and you’ll see why it’s said that both Juggalos and legends never die!

Mr. Juggalo Contest

Ittttssssssss baaaaaaaccckk! That’s right Juggalos and Juggalettes, the only place you’ll get to see the fellas REALLY show you what they’re working with! Mr. Juggalo returns!! Hosted by Mankini, we’ve got 12 contestants that will compete in 3 rounds judged by a panel on a 10pt ranking system, featuring a swimsuit round, talent round, and personality round!

D-Loc of the Kottonmouth Kings

Thick clouds of potent loud smoke rise like pillars into the night sky, heralding The Return of the King to The Gathering of The Juggalos! For almost 30 years now, D-Loc has been blessing microphones and elevating minds with the authentic Cali stoner spirit alive in his music, and now The Weedman is coming home to where his message first found its footing amongst The Family! Put one in the sky as D-Loc gives you a Royal tour through the ages showcasing an audio legacy that has made him a straight up icon in the hallowed halls of Juggalo history! You already know we’re getting spacey with it this year, and with D-Loc in the house you can bet the King’s congregation is in good hands at The Gathering of The Juggalos!

Juggalo Newlywed Game

Do NOT adjust your rabbit ears and tell the ghost of Fred Barry to chill out, this ain’t no Rerun! This is The Newlywed Game: The Juggalo Gathering Edition! Any Couple (no matter how long they’ve been together) can complete in this twisted take on an American game show classic. Hosted by comedian extortioner Alex Jaffe, get ready for some hilarious and revealing questions as the contestants are tested on just how well they actually know their partners. The winning couple will receive ICP’s VIP Experience (including gift bag items) and then get to immediately meet with ICP and participate in the Faygo Armageddon at the climax of ICP’ show on Saturday night!!! Now that is an awesome date!!!! Any couple wishing to compete should show up no later than 30 minutes before the show begins.


With all the eclectic and wild styles that emerge in the music game, every once in a while, you come across an artist whose default setting is simply, “GO HARD”! Shakewell turns down for nothing and that’s to the audience’s benefit, with a distinct voice that rides smooth over top of the beat like fire running across gasoline to deliver lyrics that operate on several layers and threaten to fly over the heads of surface-level listeners! Now this $UICIDEBOY$ constant collaborator and G59 contender has his sights set to ignite The Gathering crowd with his distinctive energy! So, who’s ready to get up and get lit with BIG JUICE THA SIP? Fuck around and find out at The Gathering of The Juggalos!

Face and Body Painting Contest

Juggalos and face paint go together like blunts and lighters. Like Better Made chips and Faygo. Like Moon Glorious and the neighborhood watch. This year we’re kicking that awesome expression of design talent up to the next level in this Bohemian style contest that encompass the entire human canvas! The Face & Body Painting Contest challenges Juggalos to create living, breathing pieces of art using the brushes and body paints we supply! All you need to bring is a willing Gathering buddy to act as your model and contestants will have one hour to impress our panel of judges with the illest body paint designs, which will be scored based on creativity, artist’s ability and amount of exposed skin used! Prizes: 1st Place – GOTJ Gold Plaque, Rare GOTJ Amulet & $200 gift certificate; 2nd Place – Rare GOTJ Amulet & $100 gift certificate; and 3rd Place – Rare GOTJ amulet & $50 gift certificate. Those wishing to compete should show up at least 15 minutes before the contest begins.

Lardi B

Who is the big beautiful boisterous bootylicious baddie bringing burger ballads and bangers to The Gathering stage? Lardi B, that’s fuckin’ who! By popular demand, we brought the foremost Pop Parody Princess back to the forefront to delight and entertain a cadre of space bound Juggalos while leaving all the mere Earthlings in the dirtball dust! ‘Shine’ is just one word that only begins to describe the awesomeness of this dynamite entertainer who plucks platinum hits and douses them in her own flavorful sauce like the musical equivalent of fusion cuisine, and the best way to grab a taste for yourself is to come rock with Lardi B at The Gathering of The Juggalos!
