OZY Fest fans,
OZY co-founders Carlos Watson and Samir Rao here.
We were so excited to meet all of you at OZY Fest this weekend, along with John Legend, Trevor Noah, Padma Lakshmi, Malcolm Gladwell, Mark Cuban, our terrific co-host and friend Alex Rodriguez and so many others. But as you know, yesterday the City of New York declared a heat emergency and canceled all outdoor events, including the New York Triathlon, Summer Stage, and OZY Fest.
All tickets will be refunded to the original form of payment by each ticket vendor. Front Gate Tickets, our primary ticket vendor, as well as other vendors like TodayTix, Goldstar and Groupon, have already emailed ticket holders with details about when to expect their refunds. Most vendors are processing refunds automatically without you taking any further action, but please refer to your ticket vendor’s stated process. If you have any questions, the most efficient course of action is to contact your ticket vendor directly.
We are so disappointed, but care most about everyone’s safety and hope you are staying cool and hydrated.
As announced this morning, we will be back — bigger and bolder than ever. We are already working with the City to find a new date. Stay tuned for more information.
We are so grateful for your love and support.
Until next time,
Carlos and Samir
