Gathering of the Juggalos

LESS Security This Year

7/11/2011 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

After last year's attacks of Tila Tequila and Method Man, you'd think the Gathering of the Juggalos would INCREASE security. Not only would you be wrong, but they're doing the EXACT OPPOSITE.


Violent J from the Insane Clown Posse (the group behind the annual festival) tells TMZ ... ICP feels the TALENT was to blame for last year's violence ... because they incited the crowd while onstage.

Mr. J believes the performers lined up for the 2011 festival have "mad respect" for the juggalos ... and won't make the same mistake.

In fact, the group is SOOOOOO confident the juggalos will remain peaceful, they've only booked a small group of private security guards to work the event ... and have NOT asked for help from local police.

The event is scheduled to go down from August 11-14 in Cave-In-Rock, IL -- and the lineup includes Charlie Sheen, MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice.

What are the chances all 3 walk away from the event unscathed?

To all the Fam posting on here.. don't bother yourself to feel the need to explain anything to them... they are ALWAYS going to hate you... we were the kids left out in high school so why would it change any?

Most people just cant help but judge other people for having different taste just like juggalo*****e preppies,yuppies, hipsters, maggots, and scenesters... we don't like what they do an they don't like what we do... but we can be childish like them and slander what they do OR we could be adults and ignore what they say... like i said before "no matter what ANYONE else says about you to keep going and stand for who you are an what your passion is..." with that im outtie... TMZ your garbage as far as im consider... and thank for your bump in views cause thats the only way juggalos are hearing about your bucket of ignorance and fail....

Here is one of the best sayings that ICP has! SAY WHAT YOU WILL OF ME... I'LL ALWAYS HAVE JUGGALO FAMILY!! thats right all you haters whoop whoop my juggalo family. People talk mad crap about Juggalos because they have no idea what we are or what we are about. Just cuz that slut got booed and thing thrown at her was not because of her personally but it is because she sucked. JUggalos know how to behavae but the public and media make us all out to be "gang bangers" and things like that. Take a step back and find the true meaning of a Juggalo! You might be suprised.

@JulieB. People are ignorant and clueless. First off, the gathering is not a small gig. Thousands of people come from everywhere to attend a gathering. There are so many artists, comedians, wrestlers and other things to see. The gathering was created because real people didnt care what the world thought. Real people that didnt have to conform to society. Real people who built an empire against the odds. And now those same real people are welcoming the outside world into their own. I would call that respect. A lot of big name artists and people can respect that. They get asked to go and can decline if they want to. At a gathering you can be yourself. There isnt no popularity or acceptance group to fit into. Unlike the mainstream where style, fashion, popularity and $$$ control everything.

Vanilla Ice has been at EVERY Gathering of the Juggalos! lol Research, TMZ? Every performer walked away okay this year, with exception to Juvenile who walked away because he was mad about people throwing things. Everyone else took it with stride like they should.
