The Omnipresent Music Festival (OMF) is an American music festival based in New York City. The festival, a five-day concert series, showcases the historical significance of BIPOC professional musicians and composers while aiming to entertain communities and inspire the youth with multi-genre musical performances.[2][3][4][5]

The Omnipresent Music Festival is currently led by founder and artistic director Edward W. Hardy.[6][7][8] Hardy said "we believe musicians on stage should reflect all communities, in the programming of music, and especially in academia. This new music festival aims to promote diversity and be an example for our youth."[9][10]
