The Press Release:
Dear OZY Fest 2020 ticket holder — We hope you are staying safe and well during this unprecedented year.
The world has changed beyond recognition since we first announced the lineup for OZY Fest 2020, and so unfortunately this year’s event will be postponed to protect public health during the COVID-19 pandemic. OZY has been working closely with the City of New York to find a new date in 2021 for our one-of-a-kind festival of music, comedy, food and ideas next summer, which will be announced in due course.
All ticket holders have the option between rolling over their ticket to 2021, or receiving a full refund. If you wish for your tickets to rollover to 2021, please click here to follow the rollover instructions from our official ticketing vendor, Front Gate Tickets. All rollovers must be claimed by Friday, July 10, at 11.59pm ET.
If you prefer to receive a full refund, you can either click the link above and follow the instructions to claim your refund now, or you can simply sit tight — anyone who has not requested a rollover by Friday, July 10, at 11.59pm ET will have a full refund processed automatically. All refunds will be processed in as little as 30 days from July 10, 2020 to the original method of payment.
You can get in touch with the Front Gate customer service team at [email protected] if you have any questions about the timeline of your refund or the rollover process.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: While I realize that event cancellations are no longer something that surprise the readership I did want to point out something about this particular event. This will sadly mark the second year in a row that this festival event has been cancelled. Last year the heat was so intense it was like being on the sun and this year, well, the virus is everythings cause of cancellation this year. We don’t actually attend this event or seek it out based on other happenings that are scheduled for the outlet at the same time, and I guess its only a matter of days before I learn that this hoped for event that conflicts for me is being cancelled as well. Stay healthy out their my friends, be mindful of your surroundings and follow whatever the regional guidelines are for you to follow. If they are farther away than a visit permits, call your family.
