The Ozora Festival, stylised as O.Z.O.R.A., is an annual psychedelic trance and arts festival in the Hungarian village of Ozora.

History and growth[edit]

The festival has been held on an estate in Ozora near the small village of Dádpuszta every year since 2004.[2] The first modern music festival held in Ozora was called Solipse and took place during the Solar eclipse of August 11, 1999. Solipse did not get a sequel until the first Ozora Festival was held in 2004.

The Ozora Festival is one of the two sizeable psytrance festivals in Hungary (the other being Solar United Natives festival), and is one of the largest psychedelic trance festivals in the world. As of 2016, it annually attracts close to 60,000 people,[1] similar to Boom Festival in Portugal and Antaris Project in Germany who also reach more than 40,000 visitors every year.[3]

Due to its success, several one-day spin-offs from the Ozora Festival have been held in several other countries such as Paris, France and São Paulo, Brazil.[4][5]

Reception[edit]

Ozora is considered one of the "leading festivals" around the world,[6] "one of the largest gatherings of trance and psychedelic music in the world",[7] and according to Trax Magazine "the principal hub of psytrance culture in Europe".[4] La Dernière Heure likened Ozora to an "ecological Tomorrowland with the Peace & Love atmosphere of a 21st-century Woodstock".[8]
