Dumb Fe5t Band Announcement #4


What’s this? Two waves of Dumb Fest bands being announced in one week?? Impossible! Well we just missed a Friday episode of The Black Sheep Radio Show, so we figured we would make it up to all of you fans out there by another ten bands announced for Dumb Fest #5 happening June 9th, 10th, and 11th. Here we go!

JUDY & THE JERKS (Hattiesburg, MS)
THE WAD (St. Louis, MO)
KOWABUNGA! KID (Champaign, IL)
C.H.E.W. (Chicago, IL)
FYC (Indianapolis, IN)
EYE JAMMY (Hattiesburg, MS)
BITE (Bloomington, IL)
TOOMS (Galesburg, IL)

There you have it. For a closer look at which of these bands are playing which of the big stages over those three days and also to see the full announced lineup, head over to our Dumb Fe5t page on our site. This leaves us at 40 bands announced, and 10 more bands to go! Expect one more announcement soon- maybe next week? Nice. Also check out the facebook event for Dumb Fe5t right here. Ticket presales and all of that jazz will probably go up with the last band announcement. Stream some Judy & The Jerks on the player below.
