The 2014 Gathering of the Juggalos Forced to Move Again

It will no longer be held in Kaiser, MO…
The LA Times reports that the location for Insane Clown Posse's Gathering of the Juggalos is no longer being held in Kaiser, Missouri as previously reported. The operators of the Crybaby Campground, where the festival was scheduled to be held, reportedly opted to not show the event after originally agreeing to do so.
The Gathering said in a statement, "This was a hard decision, and they did not make it lightly." The owners of the campground cited a backlash from local residents.
Their post on their website also stated: "We also want to add that the owners of the campground did not have a problem with the Gathering being held on their property and have mad love for all people, including Juggalos. We have been working with them to make sure this was going to be one of the greatest Gatherings ever and they have been nothing but supportive, kind hearted and open minded. They also fully understood what the Gathering was and were fully willing to welcome us with open arms (after all, this is the same spot that hosts a biker rally every year)."
A new location has not yet been nailed down. Organizers are "aggressively looking into other areas to hold the Gathering and have a couple places already lined up." All current ticket holders will receive full refunds.
