In defiance of Tila Tequila's seemingly idle threats that she would single-handedly bring down the cultural juggernaut that is the Juggalo Gathering after last year's melee, in which she endured flying dildos and urine bombs, Psychopathic Records and ICP have announced the dates of this year's Gathering. Once again, the dark carnival is slated to go down at the HogRock campground in Cave-In-Rock, Illinois. While this year's acts have yet to be announced, we're going to hazard a guess that Ms. Tequila isn't on the bill.
