ST. LOUIS — Organizers of an outdoor festival headlined by the rap-metal group Insane Clown Posse are finding new digs for the event after six years of staging it in southern Illinois.

A band spokesman said last week it won’t be held at the site near Cave-In-Rock, a Hardin County village along the Ohio River. But Jason Webber declined to elaborate on the new location.

The five-day concert, which each year has drawn tens of thousands of people, also has developed a reputation for unruliness drug overdoses and arrests.

The yearly gathering has been a recurring headache for Sheriff Jerry Fricker, who said he’ll be glad the group is moving on.
