World-class acts, top-notch beer, and philanthropic fun – get ready because “Fat Tire presents the Tour de Fat” from New Belgium Brewing is bringing the party to Chicago on Saturday, July 29. This year’s tour is the biggest and boldest yet, traveling to 33 cities.

Leading up to the big day, some cities, including Chicago, will host a Battle of the Bands competition to play on the Tour de Fat stage. On Monday, June 26 four local bands, White Mystery, Ric Wilson, Lili K and Modern Vices will compete against each other for this hometown honor.

“We’re looking forward to sharing our new Battle of the Bands competition element with Chicago music fans,” said New Belgium Tour de Fat Brand Manager, Sam Sawyer. “In Chicago, competing bands can earn votes online beginning Monday, June 12th, as well as from event attendees and Battle of the Bands judges. The band with the most combined votes gets to play at Tour de Fat!”

How Bands Win: Voting will be a three-part process including online in advance of the event, and on-site from attendees and a judging panel. The band with the most combined votes at the end of the Battle of the Bands event will play the Tour de Fat Chicago stop.
