The Gathering of the Juggalos has completely overshadowed its reason for being, a gathering of members of the bizarre, weird, subculture that surrounds the horror rap outfit Insane Clown Posse. That Gathering is its own musical entity and it makes news. Charlie Sheen made headlines this week when he was booed offstage at the annual Gathering of the Juggalos in Cave-In-Rock, IL. The Gathering set an expectation for mayhem in 2010 with an incident in which reality star Tila Tequila was attacked on stage by ICP fans. Tequila's experience didn't discourage the likes of Flavor Flav, Lil' John, Ron Jeremy, Vanilla Ice, George Clinton, Xzibit, MC Hammer, from making the scene. This year, New York photographer Nate "Igor" Smith documented the strange and extreme scene among the juggalos in photos. Above, we've excerpted a slice of Smith's best of—visit drivenbyboredom.com for even more GOTJ images.
