Mayor Bill de Blasio made the announcement on Friday (July 19).

“As many of you know, there is a city-wide heat emergency. To ensure everyone’s safety, OZY Fest will not be going ahead as scheduled this weekend. We are so disappointed and so sorry that this has happened. We are currently working with the City to figure out alternative plans. We will be in touch with ticket holds and the media as soon as we have more information. Stay tuned,” festival organizers tweeted in a statement later that day.
