How The Gathering Is Making The World A Better Place
Hello, True Juggalo Family!
GATHER! GATHER! GATHER! Are words you will always here Juggalos chant. It doesn’t matter where you come from- but if you gather- You Matter! Anything goes! Gathering of the Juggalos is a 4-day nonstop concert unlike any other out there. From popular mainstream Juggalo-friendly bands to even the wickedest underground acts from all over the WORLD. Here are some of my favorite reasons why the Gathering of the Juggalos is making the world a better place:
- FAMILY: Whether you are a popular kid or the forever alone guy, you will fit in and make so many memories and friends for life. This is a key staple point of the Juggalo family and the fact that everyone is someone in the community. All Juggalo Lives Matter! It’s crazy to think that just in 4 days, you can network with so many people in such a little amount of space. In the picture above, we all come from different states and even countries! Yes, I’ve met UK, Australian, Canadian, German even Italian Juggalos. I love that we are so diverse and open minded to all cultures making the Gathering a better place. FAMILY! FAMILY!
- LOVE: The love for each other is uncanny. Some even get married here! Gathering of the Juggalos is a place where we all understand each other and can identify and relate to each other on a deeper level. Fact, Juggalos always show love! The Fam will tell you otherwise when you have simply well… FUCKED UP! I love hearing the exchanges of WHOOP WHOOP’s at all times of the day.
- MUSIC & ENTERTAINMENT: Psychopathic Records never does us wrong when it comes to bringing us the best music and comedy acts out there! They have even revived some people’s careers by asking them to perform at a Gathering. I’ve spoken to many celebrities that have played at a Gathering and they 100% agree that Juggalos are the most loyal fans and that this was the best time they ever had on stage at a festival.
- NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS & MERCH BOOTHS: Always great to see the help of organizations that provide Juggalos a safe place, guidance and even food and water/Faygo such as Juggalos for Jesus and Scrub Care Unit. Bluntman’s One Stop Shop and I Love Pot booth and so many more merch booths that provide Juggalos with items they may have forgotten or need. One of the favorite spots is Burrito Man!
- INDIVIDUALITY: You are free to be YOU! Do what YOU want to do!
- CLEAN UP: I am always so proud of the fam each year when towards the last few days left of the Gathering, you see people picking up trash and keeping the grounds just as nice as we found it. That’s how we keep a good rapport with the venues. High Five!
The magic that the dark carnival brings to you as you enter the gates of a Gathering is the best rush you will ever feel. You certainly feel that you are home and seeing all your homies solidifies that. We work our asses off to make it all there for four days of unforgettable memories. We take care of each other at all times as we are our own little community. I can’t wait to see you all next year. The Gathering of the Juggalos is our home and the happiest place on earth (sorry Disney!).
