It's the most magical, miraculous time of the year, as this week the
good people wicked clowns at Psychopathic Records have unleashed this year's Gathering of the Juggalos infomercial. No longer at Cave In Rock, Illinois, this year's festivities will take place at Legend Valley in Thornville, Ohio, or as the 2014 commercial installment would have you believe, "Heaven." But what would a Gathering promo be without some surprises?
Along with the revelation that (SPOILER ALERT) all Juggalos go to Heaven, here's the five most surprising acts playing the Gathering this year.
5) Digital Underground
Lead by Shock G, one of the most underrated producers and all-around greats in hip-hop history, Digital Underground will be encouraging the Juggalos to "Doowutchyalike," and the safe money's on them being receptive to the message. The only reason D.U. isn't ranked higher is because they've not only played the Gathering once before, but hold the distinction of being one of the few bands to actively encourage the audience to throw whatever they want at the stage. That's the way they swing.
4) La Coka Nostra
A decade or so ago the Juggalo/horrorcore fanbase and the underground boom-bap traditionalists seemed to have an unspoken tension with each other. Today, one of the most visible underground constants, Ill Bill leads his La Coka Nostra supergroup right into the heart of Juggalo country. This might lead to one of the wildest sets of the entire festival.
