FuMPFest 2017 Announcement!

We are thrilled to announce that we have begun planning FuMPFest 2017 and have some information we can now share with you!

General Info
FuMPFest 2017 will be taking place June 16-18 at the Elk Grove Holiday Inn, the same venue we were at in 2016. Our hotel block should now be open and the rate is the same $109 per night. The room block closes May 26th.

Pre-registration is now open. Registration is just $40 for the weekend until March 31st. Visit our Registration Page to register online.

And we are now seeking dealers, sponsors, and program book ads for 2017.

Guest of Honor: Henry Phillips
Our guest of honor for 2017 will be none other than Henry Phillips. Henry tours the country bringing his own brand of "disconcertingly funny" songs to unsuspecting crowds everywhere. He is best known to fans of The Dr. Demento Show as the author of "On the Shoulders of Freaks," "Sweet Little Blossom of Mine," and "Guitar Pill." He also starred in the comedy Punching the Clown which we screened in 2015. We are thrilled to have Henry on board.

Video Contest
We are running another video contest for this year. Make a fan video for any song from The FuMP (preferably one that doesn't already have one) and you could win a free admission to next year's event. See our Video Contest page for details.


Holy Crap, What a Weekend!

FuMPFest 2016 was an unbelievably epic weekend of music, comedy, and fun! It was so epic that we are just now finally (mostly) recovered from the con and caught up with everything we have to do! Thank you to everyone who came, all of our guests and performers, our volunteers, the hotel staff, and everyone else who made this weekend a success!

We have some of leftover merchandise from the weekend that we have put in our store.

  • 2016 T-shirts - We have a very limited amount of 2016 t-shirts left. The shirts look amazing, so if we have your size left definitely pick one up!
  • 2016 Program Book - We made a few too many program books this year so we will be selling the extras through October for $2 each.
  • 2014 T-shirts - We had some additional t-shirts from 2014 leftover from a second run we did. Those have now been added to the store.

And we still have some copies of the 2014 and 2015 live CD sets.

Finally, we have set up a brief (7 question) survey to get some feedback from the audience regarding the event. If you have a few minutes please fill it out. Responses are anonymous and will be collected through October 15th. Click here to complete our survey.

Thanks again for an awesome event! We hope to have some information to share regarding 2017 soon!


Tune in Live!

FuMPFest is this weekend, and if you can't be here in person you can still enjoy the festivities online from the comfort of your own home, or office, or in-laws, or wherever you happen to be this weekend.

We are going to be streaming as much of the weekend as we can. Audio will be streamed for free on Dementia Radio. Video will be "paywutchyalike" via Concert Window. See the schedule for the full list of events happening this weekend.
