Battle Of The Bands

Chilifest Battle of the Bands is a competition for the chance to play the opening spot on Friday of Chilifest.
We are partnering with the Tap (the location of the contest) and Texas Music Pickers to put on the event. There are 6 rounds that occur every other week, and the breakdown is as follows. The first 4 rounds are preliminary rounds of 6 artists performing an acoustic set. After the first four rounds, one winner from each round, plus one wildcard winner will advance to the semi-finals on the 5th contest night and perform another acoustic set. From the semis will advance the top two winners into the finals, where they will perform with a full band.
At the end of each contest, there will be a performance by bigger name artists. Here are the dates and names of contestants/headlining artists:
