JORTSFEST, the brainchild of Maria Sotnikova and Michael Leon, will return for a fifth year in 2017 under the organizing leadership of Carter Sutherland and Maria Sotnikova. The festival was originally conceived as a way to bring the garage, punk, indie pop, and emo scenes together to bid farewell to summer. In the years following, JORTSFEST has grown to include hip hop, electronic, and a multitude of other music genres and the festival’s motto has become “ALWAYS FREE // ALWAYS ALL AGES // ALWAYS ACCESSIBLE”. JORTSFEST is always held in an ADA and transit accessible location with gender neutral bathrooms, where all ages and all income levels are welcome.
