Insane Clown Posse members Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope are hosting the first ever Dark Carnival Games Con this weekend and you're probably not the only one asking yourself what, exactly, that is.

The convention — similar to a comic con — is geared toward "Juggalo gamers" and invites them to compete in tournaments for Into the Echoside, Quest for Shangri-La, Texas Hold'em, Morton's List, Juggalos Against Sanity, Magic the Gathering, and other games whilst donning clown makeup and wearing JNCO jeans and wife-beaters.

The three-day con also includes afterparties featuring an ICP concert, a rare performance from V Sinizter, plus DJ Carlito, DJ Clay, MBK, Big Hoodoo, and more.

Appropriately, the whole thing is held at the Gibraltor Trade Center in Mt. Clemens.

If things are still unclear, you can watch this promo video, which features a very slim looking Violent J. For more info go here.
