DC MARCH CONCERT MOVING - NEW VENUE SOON!
The free concert scheduled to follow the Juggalo March in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, September 16, 2017 will not happen at its originally scheduled venue due to the venue changing its mind about booking ICP, possibly due to pressure from law enforcement agencies. It is Psychopathic Records' full intent that a free concert will still take place following the Juggalo March, which is scheduled for noon in the National Mall.
Today, Psychopathic Records released this statement concerning the unwarranted cancellation of the concert:
“Despite months of having dates helds at a venue near D.C., the facility has revoked the dates reserved by Psychopathic Records last July to hold the free Juggalo March concert.. When Psychopathic attempted to schedule the concert on a different date, they were flatly told that they would NEVER be allowed to book a show at the venue on any date, presumably due to unwarrented fears of Juggalos. This decisionis telling thousands and thousands of people that they are not welcome in their community simply because they identify as Juggalos, which is a music-based subculture and nothing more. And this PRECISELY reflects the purpose of the Juggalo March – to call attention to the kind of casual discrimination, profiling, and bigotry that Juggalos face every day throughout these United States. This is why we are marching and also why we are calling upon fellow music artists, social activists, and public servants to join us at the March – because the basic civil liberties of thousands of taxpaying American citizens are being abused…simply because they listen to a certain type of music. To our Juggalo brothers and sisters, rest assured we are looking into all options to ensure a free concert following the Juggalo March on September 16 goes on as planned. Stay strong and remember…we are family, NOT a gang or public menace and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!”
