VOTING
Pre-sale ticket holders will receive the voting survey + list of band submissions. Anybody who picks up a pre-sale ticket before April 4th will be able to see the band submissions and vote on 27 slots by choosing the 27 bands (of the 75 band submissions) they most want to see. We are keeping the band submission list private out of respect to bands who may not want the World Wide Web to know they submitted.

CHARITY
Our charity partners in 2020 are Test Prevention Awareness Network (TPAN) and Chicago HOPES for Kids. After modest expenses are covered, all proceeds will be split 50/50 between those charities.

* Friday June 7 from 7 to ???  – bands and bonfire in the West Loop

* Saturday June 8 from noon to midnight – bands and BBQ at Workshop 4200, afterparty from 12 onward

* Sunday June 9 from 2  to 10PM – more bands and BBQ at Workshop 4200

How can I go?  Donate $40 via Paypal to jhastie@penguinrandomhouse.com to get on the donor list. Donors get into all 4 events. Donations (minus modest expenses) and ALL raffle proceeds will be split 50/50 between Test Positive Aware Network and A Long Walk Home.  Use the “send to a friend’ option as it’s a charity donation and John doesn’t need to pay fees.

Can I donate without PayPal?  Sure, send an email to prfbbq2019@gmail.com and we’ll work it out.

Who’s playing this year?  Apart from a few surprises, donors are going to make the call this year.  Bands are already submitting their names and links to music, and people who have donated will do a ranked choice vote for their favorites after submissions are closed April 5th.  We’ll contact bands by votes and the lineup will take shape as they confirm that they can play.
