May is here and that means flowers blooming, summer days by the pool and the countdown to OZY Fest has begun! Get ready to dance with Sevyn Streeter and Marc Rebillet, brainstorm big ideas to Reset America with Mark Cuban, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Condoleezza Rice and Malcolm Gladwell, laugh with Tig Notaro — and even have Big Freedia set you up on a blind date.
Maybe you’ve been to our “TED meets Coachella” festival of great entertainment and bold conversations before — but this year will look a little different. While we’ll certainly miss the energy of New York’s Central Park, we think that this year’s virtual event will be better than ever. Here are four reasons why:
No need to yell from the crowd. Attendees get to be part of the important conversations we’re having, whether by recording a question for one of our top-tier guests or continuing the conversation after the panel in discussion with our OZY editors.
OZY Fest VIP guests will have the exclusive opportunity to participate in a matchmaking dating show with none other than Big Freedia herself. Whether you’re looking to start a post-COVID fling or on searching for The One, Big Freedia might have your answer. Already found your soul mate? Impress them by showing off your best moves in a one-of-a-kind show with famed magician John Stessel.
VIP ticket holders can fill out their personal profile and participate in our virtual matchmaking to meet like-minded event attendees for networking, to find a new pen pal or (you never know) maybe even to start a Zoom romance! Our virtual festival will have incomparable opportunities for interactivity, from meet-and-greets, to live polls and more.
No need to sift through the crowd to catch a glimpse of a performer or wait in a long queue for a dirty port-a-potty. With OZY Fest, feel the intimacy of Sevyn Streeter performing from her living room or conversing with Malcolm Gladwell at his kitchen table. And when you need to take a bio break or have a hankering for a snack, you’ll have it all in the comfort of your home. We're even giving you a free gift card for food delivery if you register today!
Oh, and best of all, we’ll stay safe and healthy while having a great time without creating a super-spreader event. What’s not to love?
For only three more days, our tickets will be available at presale prices (and with offers for gift cards from your favorite delivery services). Don’t forget to take advantage of this offer today before prices go up!
