New York City officials have canceled OZY Fest as a result of the heat emergency this weekend. While we are disappointed at this outcome, the safety of our guests is our number one priority. Ticket holders will receive an email tomorrow regarding the process to claim a refund.
Please read the joint statement from OZY and the City of New York for more information.
I have heard of some folks that are upset with this decision. Would have been a “Legend-ary”weekend in NYC. But folks think of this almost like sitting on an airplane waiting to take off and the captain comes on and announces that we will all have to de-plane the aircraft as we have been grounded by storms. I have actually heard people complain out loud as this happened, some of these rocket scientist demand that the flight take off as planned… Are we seeing the correlations???
Also think off this.. Everyone on the production wanted this to happen, The artist, the producers, the fans… but.. one thing I learned managing Public Safety in Times Square the past four years……
SAFETY FIRST!!!! SAFETY ALWAYS!!!
I for one applaud the decision!!! Wishing all a safe and sound weekend.
