Announcing FuMPFest 2019!

We are thrilled to finally be able to announce FuMPFest 2019! This year's event is going to be taking place at the Holiday Inn O'Hare in Chicago from August 9-11. Our guest of honor this year is The Doubleclicks! This quirky, nerdy duo from the northwest have been putting out charming, catchy, funny melodies since 2011 and we are thrilled to have joining us this year. Additional guests are still being booked and will be announced later.

Our room block with the hotel is $119 per night, which includes breakfast. We have 120 rooms to fill and if we fill them we get a significant discount on the meeting space, so please help us fill the room block. Our group code is FMF.

Once again we will be having a video contest, so get your cameras ready and you could win a free admission and 2 free hotel nights at FuMPFest 2020! And once again we are looking for sponsors to help us offset the cost of putting on this convention. If you'd like to reach a dedicated fanbase of comedy music fans this is the place to do it.

We are not going to be able to have a con suite this year, but the hotel will be on site selling food in the snack bar. More details to come. And yes, Dumb Parody Ideas will be back, as will FuMP Bingo, and The FuMP Game Show.

If you pre-registered for 2019 and can no longer make it please let us know. We can apply your membership to our 2020 event or refund you your money.

Stay tuned for more details. We will be announcing additional acts as they are confirmed. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.

Thank You for an Amazing Event!

Another FuMPFest has come and gone and we had so much fun we are just now getting around to sorting things out from the weekend.

All the acts were amazing, as usual. It was great to see Lauren Mayer and Bill Larkin do full sets and, of course, The Four Postmen just blew the lid off the place with their concert. It was amazing! And I am still humbled to have been named Honorary Postman #6 with a hat and everything. That was so cool!

The FuMP Game Show was a lot of fun and went off much better than we were expecting it to. The FuMP Bingo was a lot of fun, and Dare to be Weird Burlesque was a welcome addition to the weekend.

We still have some copies of the 2017 FuMPFest CDs if you haven't picked one up yet, and a limited number of FuMPFest 2018 t-shirts. So if you haven't picked yours up yet order soon before we run out.

We've already started planning for next year and we are looking to fill two more volunteer positions. 1. Hotel Liaison. We are looking for someone to just interface between Devo and the hotel. Must be in Chicago and have a car. 2. Salesperson. We are looking for someone to get us more sponsorships and possibly score some deals with local establishments. If you think you can help out with either position please email Devo Spice.

Thanks again, folks! And we'll update you on what we have planned for next year as soon as we know anything!

FuMPFest 2018 App Available

Our mobile app has been updated for this year's event. Go to your respective stores and download it to help you enjoy the weekend. The app is available for iOS and Android. (The Google Play store is still showing last year's icon for some reason. Install it and you'll see this year's icon.)

The app features our schedule, area map, hotel information, policies, and links to audio and video streaming sites. So if you can't attend the event in person you can tune in to the audio on DementiaRadio or the video on Twitch. (Note that due to a technological change we were unable to get the Shoutcast stream to work from inside the app itself. The app links to DementiaRadio.org. You will need a streaming media app such as VLC to listen to the stream.)
