OZY Fest was born out of our deep belief that broad curiosity — about people, ideas, and culture — fuels meaningful and rewarding lives. Featuring the very best live music, stand-up comedy, cooking demos, and stimulating conversation with leaders across disciplines and political leanings, OZY Fest offers a rare opportunity to engage with forward-thinking artists, business leaders, presidential candidates, writers, teachers, students and more — all while chowing down on great food in the sunshine of New York’s Central Park. Now in its fifth year, OZY Fest has been dubbed “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 our friends at Boston University.
The OZY Fest headliners aren’t like any other festival lineup out there — it is a group of game-changers and change-makers who are ahead of their time, and worthy of yours — because OZY Fest is where cutting-edge culture comes to life.
OZY Fest is brought to you by the minds of OZY, a media and entertainment company for curious people. Our mission is to help you discover the world more broadly and more boldly by introducing you to the New and the Next — rising stars, fresh trends, provocative ideas and boundary-pushing culture — through events, TV shows, stories, podcasts and more.
