Gathering Of The Juggalos 2018

Photos from the 19th Gathering Of The Juggalos, July 18-21, 2018 in Legend Valley, Ohio. All photos by Doug Mahugh, but I don't care what you do with them.

Parking Lot Party

We arrived in Legend Valley around 6PM the evening before the Gathering began, and spent a few hours at the parking lot party. Many people stayed up all night until the gate opened in the morning.

Juggalos waiting for morning, when the gate will open and everyone will rush to stake out camp sites.

Day 1: Wednesday, 7/18

Nice to meet some of the Juggalos I've gotten to know on Twitter over the last year!

These cops have worked all four Gatherings at Legend Valley, so they've seen it all. For example, Juggalos would pose in front of them smoking a joint for a photo, and they'd always say "don't make me bust you," which everyone seemed to know meant "nothing stronger than a joint for photos with the cops."
Who has more fun?

one of my favorite moments: after two nights of people shooting fireworks from the camping area into the mosh pit in front of the stage, the mosh pit fired back
A final thrill from our first Gathering – the day after it was over, Insane Clown Posse used one of my photos to thank everyone for coming!
