On June 4, you can experience what it would be like to walk through a real life shuffled Spotify playlist at Dorchfest, an outdoor music festival featuring 40 different artists performing on various neighborhood porches. The inaugural event is being hosted by the Ashmont-Adams neighborhood and from 11:30 AM to 4:00 you can walk through the town while stopping to listen to the 30-to-60 minute sets of Haitain music, country music, folk music, Cape Verdean music, Indian music and more. You can get the full details here!
