Juggalos: Cultural Anthropology

juggalo insane clown posse

If you’re a fan of the band Insane Clown Posse, you’re called a Juggalo or Juggalette. Every year there’s an event called “The Gathering of the Juggalos”, and the 10th one just happened this past weekend in Illinois. Pauly Shore and Coolio performed. There was wrestling. The band wore heavy makeup and sprayed soda on its fans from the stage.

My entire social life is the complete opposite of this event, and sometimes I forget that everyone isn’t like me and my friends. So looking at pics like this becomes a valuable form of cultural anthropology and an object lesson in diversity.

And so, without further ado, I bring you: the video trailer for the event:

And a collection of pics (some NSFW; all fascinating) from:
The 10th Annual Gathering of the Juggalos.

    Just had to add, a lot of juggalos I’ve met aren’t even the biggest fans of ICP, its all about twiztid and shit for them, these days it’s more about being into any psychopathic record music
