New ORF Web Site Kicks Off 2004 Festival


New Brunswick, NJ May 19, 2004 -- The Online Rock Festival has officially launched its newly designed web site for the 2004 season. In addition to the new design, ORF has also undergone some structural changes during the off-season. This year the festival will be organized and run by the non-profit organization Agent15, whose ideals and motivations aptly complement those of the independent music community. Ever since its conception in 2001, ORF has experienced a progressively rapid growth in participation, capacity, and support. With this year’s changes, 2004 promises to yield the largest, most successful festival yet.

The Online Rock Festival is an annual, Internet based music showcase of independent rock bands. This event generates an unlikely mesh of musicians from assorted countries, genres, economic capacity, and creative ideals. The result is a unique, interactive community of bands, jurors, and fans who share the task of awarding seven groups with prizes provided by an array of sponsors.

"Independent artists are the innovators, the risk takers, the musicians who keep the rest of the industry honest. They should be celebrated for their efforts regularly, and supported as much as possible... Our intention is simply to do just that."
- Hassan Mahmood (Co-Founder, Artist Relations)

The non profit organization, Agent15, based out of New Brunswick NJ and located on the web at, is the exclusive operator of the 2004 Online Rock Festival. Agent 15 seeks to provoke and maintain an active dialogue on the broad spectrum of issues that affect independents most, advance the awareness and perception of all independently created works.
