Definitely not. Gathering of the Juggalos is a giant lawless party. It's held on a large campground, so most people bring tents or motor homes to camp on site. They have carnival rides, fair games, wrestling, contests, comedians, and of course, lots and lots of insane partying. There's no police presence, so people hold up signs for what drugs they're selling.

Anything that gets Prong in front of a large group I approve of. Regardless of what it's for.

My cousins have went before and they said it is just nonstop insanity. Like no one sleeps and everyone is always messed up.

I'd go but I'd be scared of being raped and killed. That stuff happens there. (Plus I don't like 95% of the musical acts)

Cave In Rock, IL is like an hour from me. It's wild around these parts without ICP and there festival due to the biker gangs. It's like Sons of Anarchy with Juggalos when ICP plays their festival.

Slipknot will hold their first-ever Knotfest with two day-long events, one August 17th in their home state of Iowa and the other August 18th in Somerset, on the border of Wisconsin and Minnesota. The shows will find Slipknot joined by the Deftones, Lamb of God, Deathlok, Serj Tankian, the Urge, Cannibal Corpse and more.

"It's all about having fun and bringing something to the world of rock & roll, bringing it to the standard it used to be," Slipknot's Shawn "Clown" Crahan tells Rolling Stone. "It's time for us to really engulf this idea known as Knotfest where we're in control, we make a day devoted to our mindset, our ideas, the people that we want to play with, the people that we think our fans want to be around."

Slipknot, of course, is about a whole aesthetic, not just the music. "When everyone leaves their senses [will be] overloaded, and I'm talking about smells, sights, hearing, your body, everything is overloaded with stimulation, because that's what Slipknot does," Crahan says.

Among the activities the festival is offering as part of its "dark carnival experience" are circus big-top tents, pillars of fire, amusement park rides, burlesque performers, firebreathers, stilt walkers, drum circles made of junkyard cars and graffiti walls. The two shows will also debut a Slipknot museum.

Knotfest is something the band has always wanted to do, according to Crahan. And the time is right. "Now, after 15 years, things feel right, things feel complete, things feel like we can accomplish anything. And I love challenges," he says.

That came about in large part through adversity. The band suffered a devastating loss in 2010 when bassist Paul Gray was found dead in his Iowa hotel room. Like any group that's suffered the death of a band mate, Slipknot were left to figure out the best way to carry on and honor their brother. They decided to do it live.

"When the tragedy of our life happened, instead of going away we decided, 'No, that's not the right thing to do. Let's go out, let's share the way we feel with the people that feel like we feel,'" Crahan says. "So last summer we embarked on a tour, then we went to South America and opened up for Metallica in Rock In Rio. We just got back from Australia, and now we're gonna embark on another fantastic one-of-a-kind tour, ending this thought process that's been consumed by these feelings about a great loss."

After closing this chapter, the band will move on. "We're going to take our personal time to do what it is we feel we need to do to get ready for the new record that's gonna come out sooner than anybody knows," says Crahan.

Expect Knotfest to be an ongoing tradition, even if Slipknot isn't always on the bill. "It's something that we want to be in control of so much that it can exist without us," Crahan says.

I'm surprised Slipknot is playing in Somerset again. Somerset used to host Ozzfest and a few other major rock festivals each year before the town got sick of being invaded by drunk metalheads every year and the venue ownership had financial troubles.

The last time Slipknot played Somerset was on Tattoo the Earth and apparently venue security got into a scrap with one of the members because they didn't know who he was. Slipknot threatened to not perform that night (Hatebreed didn't perform, apparently to protest the way Slipknot had been treated).

I guess the venue in Somerset has new ownership and apparently the venue is now seated (it used to be a giant wide open bowl). I'd prefer LoG coming through on its headlining tour w/ Gojira and playing in a club instead of having to deal with the Slipknot crowd in a seated venue, but I'll take what I can get.
