CAVE-IN-ROCK, Ill. (AP) -- Insane Clown Posse say they're going to sue the FBI for labeling its fans as gang members. The duo announced at its Gathering of the Juggalos convention over the weekend it will file a lawsuit against the FBI for putting ICP fans, known as Juggalos, on its National Gang Threat Assessment List last year. ICP have set up a website at www.JuggalosFightBack.com for fans to report tangles with the law because they are ICP fans.

CAVE-IN-ROCK, Ill. (AP) -- Organizers of an outdoor festival featuring the rap-metal group Insane Clown Posse say they’re relocating from their site in Southern Illinois’ Hardin County.

Jason Webber is a spokesman for Psychopathic Records Inc., which produces the Gathering of the Juggalos.

He told The Southern Illinoisan that the event is moving from Cave-In-Rock. He didn’t say where the festival would be held or why the venue was changing.

The five-day concert that has been held in southern Illinois since 2007 draws tens of thousands of people. While it’s credited as an economic boost to the region, the event has produced its share of unrest.

One man died during this summer’s festival at the Hogrock campground. And dozens of attendees were arrested on drug-related and disorderly conduct charges.
