THINK. EAT. ROCK.  The future of festivals is here. 

OZY FEST, described by The New York Times as “part music festival, part TED talk, part food fair,” features entertainers, innovators, and thought leaders on the cutting edge. 

An all-day festival under the beautiful summer sky in the heart of Central Park, OZY FEST 2017 will feature R&B star Jason Derulo, comedian Samantha Bee, authors Malcolm Gladwell and Ta-Nehisi Coates, Yahoo! Global Anchor Katie Couric, Super Bowl MVP Von Miller, HBO’s Issa Rae, CNN political contributor Van Jones, and many more (full lineup below).

Celebrity chef Eddie Huang (Baohaus, NYC) is curating a mouth-watering food experience all day long!

OZY FEST is something you experience — not something you just attend. Rumsey Playfield in the heart of Central Park comes alive with everything you love in one place.

Join 5,000 guests to interact with art, engage with provocative speakers, taste inventive food and listen to live music, and much more. 

Last year the festival featured music headliners: Will.i.am, Wyclef Jean and Andra Day, a conversation with Broad City's Abbi Jacobson & Ilana Glazer, presentations, panels and discussions with Senator Cory Booker, Karl Rove, Malcolm Gladwell, art exhibits with Kazuhiro Tsuji and food from celeb Chef Alex Guarnaschell.
