The Arrogant WormsThe Arrogant Worms!

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.

First Round of Guests Announced

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!

FuMPFest 2015 Dates Announced

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!

Thank you!

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.

Room Parties and Volunteers 2

We now have a page set up with information about Room Parties. If you would like to throw a room party please let us know. We need to let the hotel know so they can group all of them together in one area.

Also, FuMPFest is looking for volunteers!  If you can help us with things like manning the registration table for a couple hours, or making sure the con suite hasn’t turned into a complete disaster area please contact Jean “Jayekitty” Prior and let her know.  She is in charge of FuMPFest volunteers.  Thanks for all your help!

Info For Dealers

We have finally finalized our plans for the dealers room and put the information on our web site here.  Take a look and if you have any questions please contact us.
