By design, the JTMF lineups are a diverse spicy gumbo of talented artists from around the globe. Variety is the spice! The weekend of music is like a live mixtape, sequenced to take you on a joyful ride with artists on the rise that you don’t see at other fests.  Says festival founder Barnett English.
