The third annual edition of Sitting On The Outside Festival (a.k.a. SOTO FEST) kicked off Thursday night, and our photographer Ev was on-hand to snap some shots of the action. SOTO FEST is a community-minded DIY punk festival that incorporates a tonne of explosive bands playing live over three days. Shout outs to our buds Ska Jeff and Felix Lahbabi-Granger for organizing this fest and keeping things going, especially since Ottawa Explosion Weekend isn’t happening this year. Check out Ev’s photos below.
