Juggalos, the countdown is ON!

The time to start prepping is NOW! If you keep saying “I’ll get my tickets tomorrow” or “I’ll buy a tent later this week” the next thing you know it’s the day before you’re supposed to head out for Hatchet Landings and you don’t have any clean drawers!

But don’t panic just yet! We suggest you just start gettin’ your ducks in a row right now so your trip to the Gathering and your time During the Gathering are as worry free and fantastic as they’re meant to be!

First off, before you do any sort of planning you’re going to want to get your ticket! You can purchase them online at Or while you’re on the site you can look over the list of music stores and Hot Topics that are also selling tickets!

Next, why not start with a checklist of everything you want to bring with you to the Gathering? Sure, that bottle of Jack Daniels and a box full of face paint are important, but don’t forget the other items that will make your stay at the Hatchet Landings a lot more relaxed! Sun screen, bug spray, shoes and clothes you won’t mind getting dirty (you are camping after all), a first aid kit, a tent, sunglasses, Faygo, extra socks, spare money and smokes!

Now that you’ve got your ticket and all your stuff, you need to figure out how you’re getting to The Gathering! Are you going to drive? Maybe you can save money by carpooling with your homies? Are you going to fly? Make sure you plan on having transportation from the airport to the Hatchet Landings when you arrive! Planes, trains, and motorcycles! There are lots of ways to get to the Gathering, you jut have to figure out which method is best for you!

If you have this all under wraps, congratulations! We can’t see you at The Gathering! But for everyone else? Have no fear! There is still plenty of time to figure out all the details, get your stuff in order, and find your way to the 2010 Gathering of the Juggalos. But whatever you do, make sure you get there! It’s going to be an amazing year and something you’re not going to want to miss!
