Philip K. Dick Festival

2014 Philip K. Dick Festival Update

Unfortunately due to logistic problems that the Philip K. Dick Festival committee was not able to overcome, the 2014 Philip K. Dick Festival has been postponed. The Festival won’t be taking place at University of California, Irvine, but in another location that would have the space plus be able to meet the other logistical issues.

The Philip K. Dick Festival committee would like to hold the next festival in Orange County, California because that is where Philip K. Dick spent the last several years of his professional life. The Philip K. Dick Festival committee has also shared that the event won’t take place before the end of 2014. More information will be shared about the new location and the new dates as soon as possible.

The date and location have been set for the next Philip K. Dick Festival:

April 25-26, 2014
University of California in Irvine, California


Details about the location:

Visiting the University of California, Irvine

Campus maps

Interactive Main Campus Map

And, of course, parking information

Tim Powers and James Blaylock, well respected Science Fiction and Fantasy authors, and Phil’s friends in his Orange County years, will be present at the 2014 Festival.


As more details become available, the information will be posted on this site and the Facebook pages.

    Enough about the logo. It may be “hideous” to you, but I didn’t exactly see much to recommend your designs, either. Think about the people you are insulting before making public statements like this.

    Mind your own business, jackass. I was just trying to contribute something here. Besides, my designs are fine. You eyesight is what’s jacked up. Clearly you have no eye for design. What are you, a plumber?

    We will be asking for submissions for logo designs closer to the next festival date. We had planned it for the 2014 festival but that festival has been postponed.

      I will be performing some PKD Material here near where Paul Williams had is accident, just south of Encinitas.

      Can you send me an email? I am trying to get in touch with someone about this presentation, and could also be an avenue to raise funds for the festival/Paul Williams,

      Thank you in advance

    Is there any way to resurrect this here festival? Surely we are not all heathens in the hands of a cruel God. Where is the knight in shining armor?

    Hello all! It looks like it will be 2015 before the next PKD Festival (probably in California) . Logistics were just too much this year but I, for one, am determined to get it going again next year. So… Now Wait For Next Year

      I hope you can have the 2015 PKD Festival at California State University, Fullerton. It’s the logical location: not only is it in Orange County, it also houses the PKD archives. Talk about PERFECT.

    Has anyone spoken or heard about the PKD Fest 2015 yet? Want to make sure I don’t miss it completely.
