Why you should care
Life is short. You should enjoy it. Join us!
Where the worlds of thought, food and music intersect.
Welcome to the OZY FUSION FEST. You are cordially invited to our world. The world as we see it. A world where Will.i.am and Malcolm Gladwell converse. Where Cory Booker, celebrity chef Alex Guarnaschelli and Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer mingle.
A world where YOU interact with the artistic, the intellectual and the “trend-makers” who love good conversations, a rich mix of food and great music.
The future of festivals is here.
The OZY FUSION FEST is something you experience — not something you just attend. Rumsey Playfield in the heart of Central Park will be transformed. You will want to spend all day there. Experience incredible art, provocative speakers and live music. Meet new people, play interactive games and shop our Good Sh*t Bazaar. Or just hang out. Nothing wrong with just chillin’.
The best minds of our time.
Expect the unexpected. The inaugural event theme is “Where the world can and should be heading in the next decade.” From social scientists to innovators to actors to political heavyweights to producers turned hotel moguls, plus “agitators” who rock the boat, thought will be center stage. You also never know who might drop by to share their opinions or passion. We like surprises.
Food remixed, reenvisioned and curated by chef Alex Guarnaschelli.
Perfect days and great food go hand in hand. Chef Alex will be “CFO” — Chief FOOD Officer. We are all invited to the chef’s table. Get ready to eat your heart out. There will be custom creations that everyone can buy and try … and a few “you better get in line” limited samples. Cooking demos and friends of Alex will make it feel like a family affair. Because we believe friends are family.
Icons, future icons and tunes that transcend time.
There are a lot of bands. There are a lot of singers. Icons are few. They cross genres and go straight to our hearts. They take us places. They make us think. If you love good music, you will love OZY FUSION FEST.
