JORTSFEST 2016 to feature performances by the Wild, Ethereal, Mutual Jerk, and more
It’s a strong return for the fourth annual fest celebrating the local music scene, and cut-off denim shorts.
When asked about her expectations for this year, she says, “Just to bring folks of different backgrounds together and have a good time.”
Sotnikova is a former WREK DJ who’s heading up this year’s JORTSFEST with Sea Ghost singer, guitarist, and keyboard player Carter Sutherland.
The festival’s motto: “Always free, always all ages, always accessible.” This year, the fest takes place at the Mammal Gallery on Sat., Aug. 20, and sports a new portable ramp to follow through on JORTSFEST’s promise of accessibility. The ramp was purchased after a successful Kickstarter campaign raised more than $3,500. After JORTSFEST, the ramp will be stored at Mammal Gallery and is available for venues across the city to provide easy access to the stage.
