OZY Fest is a unique festival that brings together an interesting and diverse mix of people for an experience that doesn’t just leave you mind blown, but also mind grown. Curious? Indulge yourself at OZY Fest, and engage with the biggest names and boldest thinkers across entertainment, art, politics, business, food and thought leadership.
The theme of this year’s event is “Reset America,” based off a viral OZY campaign that aims to spark conversation to reimagine what democracy, capitalism, racial justice, education, healthcare, relationships, identity, technology and more should look like in the 21st century. We wanted to start a thought experiment about America 2.0 — and whether we should even have a new Constitutional Convention to reexamine the big, complicated issues facing our society as a national family, rather than the echo chambers we often find ourselves in. What do you think? Read the letter from OZY co-founder and CEO Carlos Watson here, and weigh in on social media using #ResetAmerica and tagging @OZY.
We are proud to be partnering with the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) as the official beneficiary of OZY Fest 2021. $10 from every VIP ticket sold between April 1, 2021 and May 16, 2021 will be donated to UNCF to support Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). For more information about UNCF, or to make a direct donation yourself, click here.
Yes, anyone can stream OZY Fest 2021 on YouTube. Be sure to subscribe to both the OZY Media and Carlos Watson Show YouTube channels to stay up to date with streaming announcements. However, only VIP and HBCU pass holders will have access to our interactive VIP platform, featuring exclusive content.
OZY Fest in may will be a virtual event, to ensure that everybody can stay safe and healthy. But stay tuned, we have some exciting announcements coming your way later this year …
OZY Media is a multi-platform media and entertainment company that produces daily digital news, original TV shows, addictive podcasts … and of course events. In everything that we do, we aim to inspire folks to see a broader and a bolder world. The name isn’t an acronym, but it is short for Ozymandias, a poem by Percy Bysshe Shelley.
There sure will be. We’ll message all ticket holders before the event with instructions about how to download the app.
Portions of the event will be streamed live publicly, but only VIP and HBCU Pass holders will have full access to explore programming in advance, submit questions and catch up on the show after the livestream ends.
Every pass — whether a Streaming Pass, VIP Pass or HBCU Pass — needs to be connected to a unique email address. So by all means encourage your friends to join you at OZY Fest — but please make sure they each register for their own pass with their own email address.
VIP and HBCU Pass holders will receive an invite several days before OZY Fest with a link to login to an exclusive virtual event platform. There, you will be able to submit video questions for the guests in advance, interact live during the event via chat and live trivia, fill out a personality profile to be matched with like-minded ticket holders in a matchmaking room, and access exclusive content via the on-demand OZY Theater. Plus, all VIP Pass holders will receive an invite to the Clubhouse app for exclusive audio-only talent meet-and-greets (iOS only).
A few days before day one of the OZY Fest 2021 livestream starts, you will receive an email with instructions about how to set up your account for our VIP virtual event platform. Please make sure to double check the email address you use to purchase your ticket is valid. If you received a confirmation email after your purchase, then you are all set.
Unless in exceptional circumstances, all sales are final — no refunds and/or exchanges are allowed after a ticket is purchased. Artist cancellation is not grounds for refund. All of our tickets are non-refundable and non-transferrable. This policy is to ensure reliability and legitimacy of each ticket sold.
Your ticket is for OZY Fest, not for a specific artist. Artists and schedules are subject to change without notice.
