    Chicago's Lincoln Fest 2011 to Take Place July 30th Through 31st - It's a prime event for DJs

    With summer in Chicago comes countless outdoor festivals, concerts and special events. Featuring a wide variety of delicious local food and numerous live musical performances, Lincoln Fest is one of the city's most popular street fests. Uncle Fatty's Rum Resort is proud to be one of the official sponsors of Lincoln Fest 2011, which will take place July 30th and 31st.

    In addition to food vendors, beer booths and a number of different bands, this year's weekend-long party will feature a brand new DJ competition that is unlike anything that has ever been done before. Produced by Darth Fader, Inc., "Scratch of the Titans" will pit 75 of the Midwest's most talented DJ's against each other for a grand prize of $10,000 – the largest cash prize ever awarded in a DJ competition in the state of Illinois. Darth Fader, Inc. will first select 75 DJ's out of the pool of applicants and asses their skills and stage presence. Lincoln Fest attendees will then get the chance to experience the top 40 and cast a vote for their favorite DJ.

    For DJ's who are interested in entering, please visit Darthfaderinc to submit your mix. For additional information on entering the contest email Darthfaderinc@gmail.com. For more information on Uncle Fatty's or "Scratch of the Titans," please contact me directly. High resolution images will be available for post event coverage upon request.
