If you have a podcast, radio show, or some other outlet where you can play a promo to help promote FuMPFest here is an updated one for you. This one has a better mix and is updated to reflect the line-up change. Please help us spread the word!
First, the bad news. Jessica Delfino has had to cancel her appearance at FuMPFest. She has just signed an agreement with a venue in New York to open a new performance space and is going to be busy with everything necessary to get that up and running. Having another comedy-music friendly venue on the scene is definitely a good thing so we certainly wish her the best of luck.
Now, the good news! This opened up a slot that we had to fill and we are very happy to welcome Danny Rockett and Bad Teenage Moustache to the bill!
Finally, we are thrilled to announce one of the movies that we will be screening during the Movie Time panel. Chomp is a short film that features some music by Trevor Strong (of The Arrogant Worms) and Marc With A C. Additionally, the good folks who made Chomp will be on hand to promote their movie and answer questions. We’ll be adding some additional movies to the show and will hopefully be announcing them soon.
There is only one week left to register at the discount rate of $35. On April 1st prices go up to $45, so get your registrations in now and save yourself some money!
Pre-registration ends on May 31st. After that you will need to get your badges at the door. There will be single-day passes available at the door as well.
We have put together a new FuMPFest promo. Please share this to help us spread the word, and if you have a podcast, radio show, or any place else you can play the promo an audio link to the MP3 is below.

FuMPFest is thrilled to announce our 2015 Guest of Honor, Canada’s own The Arrogant Worms!
The Arrogant Worms are a legend in the world of comedy music with countless hits on the Dr. Demento Show, world tours, 14 albums, and more laughs than you can imagine. We are absolutely thrilled that they have agreed to come south of the border and join us for FuMPFest!
For more information on them check out their web site.
We are proud to announce that the first six guests have been announced! They are Tim Cavanagh, Jessica Delfino, Steve Goodie, Mikey Mason, the great Luke Ski, and Carla Ulbrich! For more details on each of these guests please visit our Guests page.
And we are close to announcing our Guest of Honor for 2015! Sit tight. As soon as the papers are signed we’ll make the announcement. I promise you it’ll be worth the wait!
We have dates! After much discussion and some additional research we have decided to stay at the same hotel we were at last year, the Westin Northshore in Wheeling, IL.
The convention will be taking place June 5-7, 2015, so mark your calendars and put in your vacation time now!
We’re hoping to have some announcements soon regarding the first batch of guests so stay tuned!
FuMPFest was amazing! I can’t thank everybody enough for making the weekend as glorious as it was. Nothing major went wrong. We ran on time, for the most part. Our guests were awesome. The performances were amazing. All in all the weekend was absolutely fantastic.
We’re already looking forward to next year, since we don’t have the technology to go back to last week yet. We probably won’t make any announcements about next year for a couple months or so as it’s going to take us time to recover from this year and finish up all the administrative stuff we have to take care of.
In the mean time, here’s an article about FuMPFest by Count Gregula.
