WTF is OZY?
Someone described it as people shaking up their fields, old dogs doing new tricks, and those who like to bring the ruckus.
According to their website, OZY Fest is designed for curious minds. Blend in music, a diverse group of participants and you have a thing.
Unlike other events, at OZY Fest you are part of the conversation.
OZY Fest was born out of the deep belief that interest in people, ideas, and culture is what fuels meaningful and rewarding lives. It offers a rare opportunity to engage with forward-thinking artists, business leaders, presidential candidates, writers, teachers, students — all while munching on great food in New York’s Central Park
50 PERFORMERS. 4 STAGES. FOOD FROM 30 COUNTRIES. 2 DAYS.
Now in its fourth year, OZY Fest has been called “the only NYC summer festival you need to attend” by Thrillist and “all that one could dream of in a New York summer festival” by Boston University.
