About Dickies

Founded in 1922, Dickies has worked its way up to become the largest work wear manufacturer in the world. Every Dickies garment, from work pants and work shirts to denim jeans, women's work wear and kids' school wear, stands for the quality, toughness, and pride that embodies the spirit of the American worker-traits mirrored in the rugged lifestyle that any independent / unsigned artist endures while grinding away to share their music with the masses.

The Dickies name has been built on strength and durability, qualities most bands will need as today's music business becomes more of a struggle than ever. Don't miss your chance to come out on top-enter the Battle of the Bands now!

While Dickies Battle of the Bands is taking place in Austin during SXSW, it is not an official SXSW event. This also means it's free and open to the public.
