Juggalo Country

Powell’s City of Books, 1005 W Burnside Street, Portland, OR 97209 + Google Map

The Insane Clown Posse calls itself “the most hated band in the world,” but with 11 million albums sold, the horrorcore hip hop duo from Detroit is a widespread music phenomenon with a cult following. Juggalo Country (Microcosm) is the story of Craven Rock’s journey to their annual festival, the Gathering of the Juggalos, where legions of fans in clown makeup come together to attend this family reunion-like event and enjoy musical celebrities, feats of wrestling, debauchery, and most of all, a supportive, tight-knit community. Rock’s reporting casts a light on the many contradictions and perils of Juggalodom, sensitively handling questions of gender, health, religion, and what it means to be part of something. Part festival-goer’s journal, part music history, part investigative report, part social commentary, Juggalo Country takes us into the heart of a much-derided and controversial movement and shows us the redemptive power of family and community.
