OZY Fest 2020 Lineup: Miguel, Tig Notaro, Andrew Yang, Tan France, Chelsea Clinton And More Announced
OZY Fest, the multifaceted cultural festival highlighting tastemakers and industry leaders in the fields of music, comedy, food, politics, business and beyond, has today (Feb. 28) announced its initial lineup for its 2020 iteration. GRAMMY winner Miguel, R&B artist Jazzy Amra and singer/actress Kat Cunning lead the music programming for OZY Fest 2020, which is set to take place Saturday, July 25, at the Great Lawn in Central Park in New York City. The festival's website notes that at least two more musical acts will be added to the lineup in the coming weeks.
The OZY Fest 2020 lineup will also feature comedians Dulcé Sloan, two-time GRAMMY nominee Tig Notaro and John Stessel. Cultural figures like Queer Eye's Tan France and Karamo Brown, feminist pioneer and social political activist Gloria Steinem, actress, model and writer Jameela Jamil and several others will headline what the festival is categorizing as the "Ideas" portion of the event. In the politics arena, recent 2020 presidential candidates Andrew Yang and Julián Castro, author and global health advocate Chelsea Clinton and former Ohio Governor John Kasich are confirmed.
Launched in 2016, OZY Fest is a hybrid festival offering live musical and artistic performances, engaging discussions and delicious food options from industry leaders across the world. The festival is an offshoot of the multimedia and entertainment company OZY, which produces original news and culture content across TV, podcasts, web and live events.
In 2019, OZY Fest was canceled due to high temperatures caused by an ongoing heat wave in NYC. Last year's festival, which was scheduled as a two-day event, was supposed to feature John Legend, A R I Z O N A, Trevor Noah, Spike Lee, Malcolm Gladwell and others. Several artists and talent from last year's canceled event are now confirmed for the forthcoming 2020 edition, including Miguel, Dulcé Sloan, Jazzy Amra and others.
