StumpFest Returns This Year to Benefit St. Jude’s

StumpFest, the family-friendly music event run by industry executive Richard Stumpf, turns 20 this year as it returns to Westchester, NY on July 30, following a two-year COVID-19-related hiatus.

The event has raised thousands of dollars for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital over the past 10 years, according to Stumpf. Past performers at the event include Anna Nalick, Antigone Rising, Garrison Starr, the Kennedys, Madi Diaz and will.i.am.

“StumpFest gives me the ability to unite my two core passions: music and helping kids,” Stumpf said in a statement. “The festival is typically super casual, with artists hopping up onstage with one another —and of course, I play some harmonica with all of them. The ability to use my connections and reputation in the music industry to have artists of such a high caliber donate their time might be the most rewarding thing I’ve achieved in my career.”

Stumpf, who founded Atlas Music Publishing and has been an executive at Cherry Lane Music, MYC.com, and Capitol Records, has just formed a new start-up called Hawkeye Music Group. He says Stumpfest reminds him of what’s most important: giving back.

Anna Nalick, an artist who played StumpFest 20 years ago calls the event a “celebration of togetherness” for a good cause with music at the helm. She adds in a statement, “St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital does an exemplary job of staying at the forefront of what science and medicine can do to improve and save the lives of their young patients. Here’s to 20 more years of support from StumpFest!”
