“It’s called Otis Mountain, and it’s a good example of what the East has to offer: family- and community-run spaces that exist not because tourists come from around the world to see it, or because the government funded its protection, but because the people who live there want it, build it, and use it.“ We’re fortunate to be a part of the Adirondack community and couldn’t agree more with this article about how much this area has to offer year round. Give it a read at the link in our bio. @adventurejournal #ADK

We're still swimming in gratitude. There are too many individuals to thank, but if you've ever interacted with one of the humans in this photo, there's a good chance you've impacted what Otis has become. Otis is a labor of love. We love putting on a festival that's different. We love bringing audiences and artists closer together. We love building things we believe in. We love providing a platform for creative energy to thrive. None of this would be possible without you. So thanks, here's to you, and five more years! Photo by Eric Teed #otismountaingetdown

Meet Kepa. Steel-sliding strings define Kepa's post modern blues, as his one man jug-band approach hinges around the picks, slides, and hammers he twangs all the way from Basque County, France. @kepamusic #kepa #otismountaingetdown Audio live from the 2016 Get Down.

Strides in sustainability are always at the forefront of what we do. Thanks in part to our friends at Zero Gravity, we are reducing our consumption of single use plastics by providing our staff and musicians with reusable pint glasses. Be sure to stop by the merch tent to grab one of your own! @zerogravitybeer #zerogravity #otismountaingetdown
Meet Crusty Cuts + Loupo. The finest beat makers coming out of Burlington, VT have been with us from the start, and quite frankly it wouldn't be Otis with out a fire set from these two. Hip Hop, Soul, Funk, Jazz, you name it. You'll get your fix at the Range stage Friday night. @crustycuts @loupodaps #otismountaingetdown
