Sexual harassmant charges aren't the only legal matters Insane Clown Posse has to worry about right now. The Associated Press reports that checks being paid to Gathering of the Juggalos festival vendors are bouncing.
Event-Tex owner Patrick Gail said the company has had no issues with receiving payment for the festival before this year, but he said this year has been different and that other vendors also haven't been paid for services.Holy Faygo Batman, could this be the end of the Gathering of the Juggalos? Will Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope come up with the money they need to pay back the angry vendors? Tune in tomorrow -- same Clown-time, same Clown-channel!
"The total amount owed from our discussions with the vendors exceeds $300,000," Gail said in a statement.
Psychopathic Records, in a statement Thursday to The Associated Press, said the yearly event is a fully independent festival that has no corporate sponsorship, "and putting on a five-day music festival this ambitious is a very time consuming and expensive process."
"Unfortunately, in our attempt to provide the best possible event for our fans, expenses exceeded estimates and expectations, which we had not previously planned for," Psychopathic's statement read. "The company putting on the event, Juggalo Gathering Inc., has no intention of turning its back on these financial obligations and is in the process of preparing a plan to take care of all vendors. We thank all of our vendors for their understanding."
