GWAR playing Gathering of the Juggalos, expand GWAR-B-Q lineup, add tour dates
The 17th annual Gathering of the Juggalos is coming up from July 20 – July 24 in Ohio, and in addition to hosting classic Juggalo acts like Insane Clown Posse (naturally), Blaze Ya Dead Homie, and Twiztid, the fest also has rap vets Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and GWAR, who have a lot more coming up. There’s also plenty of wrestling, including the opportunity to try out for Insane Clown Posse’s very own wrestling company, Juggalo Championship Wrestling. The full lineup for that freaky weekend can be found here. You can still get tickets.
After the gathering, GWAR will be hosting their own annual event, GWAR B-Q on August 20, with the “B4BQ” happening the day before, in Richmond, VA. The B4BQ kicks off the weekend with bands like Cannibal Corpse and Nile as part of the Summer Slaughter tour, and Saturday’s lineup features Eyehategod, American Nightmare and Against Me!, as well as the recently announced Murphy’s Law, August Burns Red and more. Tickets are still available.
Following that, GWAR is embarking on a tour with Crowbar and Mutoid Man. All tour dates are listed below.
