The Pilsen Fest Battle of the Bands was created to celebrate, support and recognize the excellence of Chicago bands and musical talent and the unique experience offered by artists in Pilsen, Chicago and beyond. Pilsen Fest annually awards grants to participating artists and/or artistic organizations during the festival period and our proud to announce this next fundraising initiative.

The Power of Pilsen Fest

As an organization that is motivated by creativity, forward thinking, and innovation, Pilsen Fest understands the power and opportunity we have been given by the people of Chicago. Power to guide and inspire the extraordinarily talented artists of Chicago and the mid-west. For Pilsen, it means creating innovative arenas that act as a medium of exchange and benefit to society. We embrace and support those who forge their dreams into a better future. With this in mind, we cordially invite all of you music pioneers to come out and participate in the first Annual Pilsen Fest Battle of the Bands.
