FuMPFest Information

the great Luke Ski and Tom Smith

A Comedy-Music Festival/Convention

FuMPFest is a full weekend of comedy music. If you're a fan of The Dr. Demento Show, The FuMP, or any of the other numerous outlets for comedy music, you will feel right at home here.

FuMPFest features concerts throughout the weekend by today's top musical-comedy performers, including your favorite artists from The FuMP. We also feature panels, interviews, and other events related to comedy-music and the guests on hand.

We at The FuMP had talked about holding our own convention for some time, but were unsure if we could actually pull it off. Then in 2013 the great Luke Ski put on LukeSkiCon as a private event for his Kickstarter backers. Devo Spice then expanded on that event to create FuMPFest. Our first event was held in June of 2014 with Dr. Demento as our guest of honor. Since then we've played host to The Arrogant Worms (2015), Paul and Storm (2016), Henry Phillips (2017), and The Four Postmen (2018). For more information about past events please visit our Archive.
