There will be several I Am Fest Battle of the Band contests held at the Elbo Room. Bands will be provided with a basic backline (Guitar/Bass Cabs minus heads and Basic drum set and hardware minus kick pedal, snare drum and cymbals). 20 min sets for each band will be judged by a music industry panel, voted on by fans in attendance and tallied for the number of people watching the live video stream of the show per band thanks to Gigity.TV.

The overall winner of the Battle of the Bands will get to open I Am Fest 2013 at the House of Blues in Chicago. I Am Fest 2013 is pleased to announce their fourth year of putting on one of the biggest, independently produced arts and music festivals. The Elbo Room presents I Am Fest 2013 Independent Arts & Music Festival. It will host 10 bands at Chicago's very own House of Blues on Saturday, August 23rd, 2013.

In the past they have worked with over 500 bands and artists and continue to create opportunities for local bands to network, get in front of new crowds and open at one of Chicago’s premier music venues.
