OZY Media, the daily information source for important stories told nowhere else, today announces the third annual OZY FEST. Extended to two days this year, the festival will take place Saturday, July 21, and Sunday, July 22, 2018, at Rumsey Playfield in New York City’s Central Park. A limited number of presale tickets are available now at OZY.com/ozyfest. OZY FEST is presented in partnership with Volvo Cars.
Described by The New York Times as “part music festival, part TED talk, part food fair,” and by CNBC as “New York’s answer to SXSW, “ OZY FEST features world-class entertainers, innovators, esteemed thought leaders, artists and some of the world’s best food. This year’s lineup includes musicians Common and Grouplove; performers Taye Diggs, Sanaa Lathan and Laverne Cox; comedians Chelsea Handler, Hasan Minhaj and Michelle Wolf; authors Malcolm Gladwell, Steven Pinker, Roxane Gay and Salman Rushdie; celebrity chefs Marcus Samuelsson and Roy Choi; Jemele Hill (ESPN), Scott Rogowsky (HQ), Martha Stewart and more to be announced.
“OZY FEST is a massive party that descends upon New York City, bringing together the most diverse group of performers, thinkers, chefs and entertainers for an unprecedented exchange of ideas and the most fun you’ll have all year” says Carlos Watson, OZY co-founder and CEO. “This year we’re giving you double the fun, taking over Central Park for two days of laugh-out-loud comedy, delicious food and the hottest music. You don’t want to miss it!”
