CAVE-IN-ROCK, Ill. (AP) - Vendors at the latest outdoor festival featuring rap-metal group Insane Clown Posse say they're owed thousands of dollars by promoters of the southern Illinois event.
The (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan reports that several Gathering of the Juggalos vendors say they've received bad checks from those publicizing the festival last month near Cave-In-Rock.
Hardin County Sheriff Jerry Fricker tells the newspaper that a check his department got from promoters Psychopathic Records Inc. for protective vests and stun guns bounced.
The yearly festival draws tens of thousands of people for a week of music and entertainment.
Farmington Hills, Mich.-based Psychopathic Records told The Associated Press in a statement that the company putting on the event, Juggalo Gathering Inc., is "in the process of preparing a plan to take care of all vendors."
