Insane Clown Posse and More Announced for Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare 2015

Great American Nightmare Insane Clown PosseAnother night of music has been announced for Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare — the ultimate Halloween horror event — at Odeum Expo Center in Villa Park, IL. Detroit-based horrorcore/hip hop band Insane Clown Posse, rock band P.O.D., along with artists Stitches, Young Wicked, and Dope D.O.D., will perform at Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare on Saturday, October 3.

When Insane Clown Posse (ICP) emerged from the darkness surrounding Detroit’s underground music scene in the early ‘90s, the world had yet to imagine the impact that the hardcore hip-hop style spawned by these two artists–Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope–would bring to bear on mainstream music. Shunned by mainstream music players like MTV and castigated in the media, banned from radio airwaves and yanked from the shelves of “conventional” retail outlets, ICP was dealt a hand that seemed destined for swift and certain failure. Instead, the duo amassed a following of millions of fans endearingly called “Juggalos” and smashed through the ceiling of music industry expectation.

Tickets for the October 3 show at Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare are on sale and start at only $35. Tickets include the concert and haunted attractions. Tickets purchased at the door (if available) will start at $45. On October 3, doors open at 5:00 PM and the concert starts at 7:00 PM.
