    CAVE-IN-ROCK, Ill. (AP) — Vendors at a recently completed outdoor festival featuring the Insane Clown Posse rap-metal  bounced checkgroup say they haven’t been paid thousands of dollars by promoters of the yearly southern Illinois event.

    The (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan 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.
