CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Sep 12, 2012) - Fred is on his way to Chicago, and naturally his first stop is a party. Meet Fred, velvety smooth natural spring water from the USA, at The Hideout Blockparty + A.V. Fest on Sept. 14th and 15th. He'll be keeping the crowd cool and helping raise money for charity with tee shirts made from 100% recycled plastic bottles.

With a great lineup of bands including Saturday night headliner WILCO, it is no wonder this event is sold out.

The A.V. Club (the arts-and-entertainment wing of The Onion, America's Finest News Source) and The Hideout (Chicago's finest source for live music) have combined forces to present one terrific sold-out festival this year just outside The Hideout, at 1354 W. Wabansia St in Chicago.

Like Fred, The Hideout Block Party + A.V. Fest has a social conscience. The event is donating $4 of every ticket to charity, benefitting Rock For Kids, Literacy Works, Drummond Elementary School, and Oscar Mayer Magnet School.
