DUE TO SCHEDULING CONFLICTS, KITTIE WILL NOT BE AT THE GATHERING!

As of July 15th, 2002 at 5 PM all ticket orders placed for the Gathering of the Juggalos will be on Will Call. This means you pick up your ticket at the Gathering of the Juggalos Box Office in Peoria, Illinois from Friday 10 AM to 7 PM or from Saturday 10 AM to 2 PM instead of having it shipped to you. You will need a photo ID of whoever placed the order to get your tickets (i.e. if the order is in your dad's name, you need his ID or a signed photocopy of his ID to get your tickets). We also recommend having your ticket order receipt with you, as it will greatly speed up this process.

All tickets should be arriving by 5 PM Tuesday, July 16th, 2002. If you have not received your tickets by then, please call 248.426.0115. Please have as much information as possible about your order on hand (including the last four digits of the credit card used to place the order) if you call.

We are no longer accepting Gathering ticket purchases via phone, fax, or mail order.

TICKET CUTOFF DATE: Tickets will cease to be sold online after 11 AM Eastern Standard time on Thursday, July 18th, 2002. We have made arrangements to increase capacity and insure that plenty tickets will be available at the door.

An ice-cold wind, flowing like a whisper, calls out across the earth. For most, the call is almost insignificant, no louder than the flapping of a fly's wings... However, some can hear the call... almost as loud as a beckoning human voice. As it gets louder, its source becomes clear: The Dark Carnival... As it echoes further, you realize your mission. And as the volume rises to a screaming cacophony in your mind, you know what you must do, and where you must go... As the 6th Jokers Card approaches, there is one pilgrimage you must make. The almost deafening call drowns out what is left of your sanity, and beckons you to... THE GATHERING OF THE JUGGALOS 2002, MUTHA FUCKA!!!

Once again, for the third year in a row, Psychopathic Records assembles the Juggalos of the world for an amazing three days of music, Faygo, insanity, debauchery, and doom! Once again, concerts and contests, seminars and games, and Juggalo family  will draw over 10,000 to the Gathering of the Juggalos Convention.

Look below for answers to some of the questions haunting your soul.

The perfect date for the Gathering: July 19th, 20th, and 21st! Summertime, when it is warm and sunny! No school to restrict your time! And no ice on the road to make you crash and die! Do you know where you are going to be? Peoria, Illinois, fool, for the Gathering!

Where: Peoria, Illinois, USA - Peoria Civic Center

Peoria, Illinois is the perfect location for this year's Gathering of the Juggalos! It is right smack in the middle of the United States, and easily accessible by car, airplane, or bus! It has plenty of hotels, and they are among the cheapest in the country! And despite Peoria's squeaky clean image of All-American goodness, it has plenty of swinging nightlife activities such as clubs, bars, two casinos, topless dancing establishments and oriental massage parlors! All a Juggalo could need!

The Gathering of the Juggalos will be taking place in the mammoth-sized Peoria Civic Center. This titanic place is over 150,000 square feet, including a full sized arena, three giant sized convention rooms, and two cavernous seminar rooms. That is over double the size of last years convention center! It is big enough to fit  three brontosaurus, an Apollo moon rocket, two Boeing 747s side by side, and your fat ass mama, all at one time. That's wicked big...

Who: ICP, Twiztid, Blaze Ya Dead Homie, Anybody Killa, Dark Lotus, Zug Izland, 15,000 crazed Juggalos, etc.

Here is the lineup on all the devastating acts that will be performing at the Gathering of the Juggalos, 2002:

Friday, July 19th, 2002: Ghoultown, Blaze, Kittie, and Dark Lotus

If you like blood, fire, death rock and cowboy vampires, then youíre really going to enjoy the performance of Ghoultown. All the way from Dallas, they have come to drain blood, bring eternal darkness, and cause a frenzy in the crowd (letís just hope itís not a feeding frenzy). Next is the gangsta from the grave, with cold rap flows that will freeze the blood in your veins like a woolly mammoth during the ice ageÖ. Itís none other than Blaze Ya Dead Homie! His hard-hitting shock rap will slap the ears off your head, choke your senses, and leave you a quivering blob of your former self. Next comes the hard core music of the all-female band Kittie. All the way from London Ontario, they have come to bring a strong message, and deliver a concert that will leave you shaken, energized, and emotionally uplifted. Then darkness will befall you, and the sound of a faint rhythmic beat will be heard in your ears. You will then realize, all too late, that the Dark Lotus has taken to the stage, causing your body to be completely stripped away, and the noise that you hear will be your own frail heart, beating in the midst of whatís left of your skeletal frame.

 

 

Saturday, July 20th, 2002: Anybody Killa, Zug Izland, Mystery Guest, Twiztid

First up, itís that friendly thug from Detroit who only wants love and peace in the world, brought about by the harmony of his peace-inspiring rap music. Itís that righteous bringer of good will himselfÖ Anybody Killa! Next, itís the hypnotic band Zug Izland, who has come to leave their mark upon the world like a comet strike. Their music is inspiring on so many different levels that many canít help but feel the magic that their craft bestows. Then the much anticipated and unknown Mystery Guest will emerge on stage to slap your wig into your back pocket, cartoon style, as they tear the stage and the crowd apart in a musical frenzy of madness. Finally, two phantoms will emerge to take the stage in a ghostly display of horrific vision. They will haunt the arena with their nightmarish lyrics, and possess the crowd into a feverish pitch as the beat of the music takes control. They are Twiztid; and they have come from beyond to bring you one of the best shows of this world.

 

Sunday, July 21st, 2002: Psychopathic Rydas, Mack 10, Bubba Sparxxx, Insane Clown Posse

Get ready for full on war, done concert style. First will be the artillery strike, dropping high explosive shells on you as Psychopathic Rydas takes to the stage and unleashes their gangsta rap on the crowd like a pack of pit bulls. Next comes the air strike, raining down on the crowd with wanton destruction, as the gritty smoothed out pimp style of platinum artist Mack 10 impacts the crowd, leaving the battlefield devastated. All the way from Inglewood, CA, he has made huge waves across the nation, representing the W for which he stands. Then comes the ground assault, as Bubba Sparxxx displays his masterful verbal skills, laying down all opposition under his onslaught! This rap star is straight from the dirty south, man, with his own southern hip-hop style; and he plans to wreak total havoc, bring mass destruction and show no mercy! Finally the nuclear bombs will fall, as ICP takes to the stage, decimating whatever is still left with high tech weapons of horror core rap and providing ground-shaking beats that will send shock waves to be felt for miles around. Expect fireworks, laser beams, and special appearances during this once-in-a-lifetime performance. Then, finally, the Sixth will silently fall, to look down upon those who have survived, and to solidify the beginning of an era that will bring much chaos.
