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.
OZY Media is a 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.

Yes — there will be a dedicated ADA accessible entrance, and accessible viewing areas are provided in front of both stages. Accessible bathrooms are available throughout the site. You can check out Central Park’s policy here.
Children under 10 are allowed to enter the festival for free with a ticket-holding adult. Minors age 11 to 17 must have a ticket, and must be accompanied by someone over the age of 21. In both cases, there is a maximum of two minors per accompanying adult.
No dogs or other pets are allowed. Certified service dogs will be allowed.
There sure will be. We’ll message all ticket holders before the event with instructions about how to download the app.
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.
