Insane Clown Posse Festival to Move from Ill. Site

Created: 12/02/2013 10:45 AM WDIO.com

CAVE-IN-ROCK, Ill. (AP) - Organizers of an outdoor festival featuring the rap-metal group Insane Clown Posse say they're relocating from their site in Southern Illinois' Hardin County.

Jason Webber is a spokesman for Psychopathic Records Inc., the organizers of the Gathering of the Juggalos.

He told The Southern Illinoisan that the event is moving from Cave-In-Rock. He didn't say where the festival would be held or why the venue was changing.

The five-day concert that has been held in southern Illinois since 2007 draws tens of thousands of people. While it's credited for bringing a boost to the region's economy, the event has produced its share of unrest.

One man died during this summer's festival at the Hogrock campground and dozens of attendees were arrested on drug-related and disorderly conduct charges.
