FuMPFest Information

Paul and Storm - 2016 Guest of Honor

A Comedy-Music Festival/Convention

FuMPFest is a full weekend of comedy-music and related weirdness. 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 many of your favorite artists from The FuMP and The Dr. Demento Show. We also feature panels, interviews, and other events related to comedy-music and the guests on hand.

In 2021 we will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of The Dr. Demento Show with Dr. Demento himself!

FuMPFest has been providing fans with up-close and personal comedy-music festivities since our first event with Dr. Demento in 2014. Since then we've played host to The Arrogant Worms (2015), Paul and Storm (2016), Henry Phillips (2017), The Four Postmen (2018), and The Doubleclicks (2019). For more information about past events please visit our Archive.

Guest Information


August 20-22, 2021

Please see our COVID-19 Statement.

Festivities begin with Opening Ceremonies Friday evening and run until the end of Closing Ceremonies Sunday afternoon. Friday and Saturday night events run until about midnight, but karaoke stays open late. Please refer to the schedule for details.

And to make things easier on our attendees we have created a mobile app to accompany the event. The app contains information about the con, the schedule, and streaming links to tune in live.

Web App

We were unable to update our native app for 2021. Instead we have published the app as a web app. Visit fumpfest.com/app on your mobile device and it will work just like our app.
