DETROIT (AP) — An annual festival headlined by the rap-metal group Insane Clown Posse will be held in Ohio this year.

The Detroit-based duo was looking for a new venue for its Gathering of the Juggalos event after sites in Missouri and Illinois fell through.

Psychopathic Records is Insane Clown Posse’s promoter and confirms the group will host its yearly festival at the Legend Valley Concert Venue in Thornville, Ohio, July 23-26.

Past Gathering of the Juggalos events have been marred by unruliness, drug use, fights and arrests.

On its website, the group calls the festival “four days of uninhibited enjoyment” and “the greatest show and family reunion of earth.”
