You don’t want to hear about what happened yesterday. You want to discover new ways to experience life. You want to see, hear, touch, taste… feel what the future has in store. That’s why we started OZY Fest.
OZY Fest was born out of our deep belief that broad curiosity — about people, ideas, and culture — fuels meaningful and rewarding lives.
Now in its fifth year, OZY Fest has been dubbed “the only NYC summer festival you need to attend” by Thrillist and “the new SXSW” by The New Yorker. 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.
Brought to you by the minds of OZY, a media company tailor-made for the Change Generation — people from every corner of the globe who are challenging the status quo and bucking convention. 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.
We help you see more, be more and do more. Or, as one fan put it, “OZY is what cool people read to be smart and smart people read to be cool.”
