(AP) Vendors at a recently completed outdoor festival featuring the Insane Clown Posse rap-metal group say they haven't been paid thousands of dollars by promoters of the yearly southern Illinois event.
The (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan (http://bit.ly/16bqe9f ) reports that several vendors at the Gathering of the Juggalos say they've received bad checks from the promoters of the event near Cave-In-Rock.
Hardin County Sheriff Jerry Fricker says his department got a check from the promoters, Michigan-based Psychopathic Records Inc., as a donation for equipment such as protective vests and stun guns. But Fricker says that check bounced.
The festival has been staged for the past several years near Cave-In-Rock, drawing thousands of people for a week.
A message seeking comment was left Thursday with Psychopathic Records.
