O.Z.O.R.A Festival

About O.Z.O.R.A Festival

Ozora has always been a special place in history. The valley itself used to be a so called ‘sea-eye’ when the Pannon sea existed, and the soil, flora and fauna on some places are Nature Reserve protected.

Ozora is a village in Tolna County, Hungary. It has been a notable historic site since the Middle Ages. Pipo of Ozora built his castle here in the 15th century by permission of Sigismund of Hungary in 1416. An important victory of Arthur Görgei at the Battle of Ozora of the 1848 Revolution was gained here.

It is the site of a psychedelic trance festival called O.Z.O.R.A., which has been held every year since 2004.

It is also known for hosting the Solipse Festival in 1999.

The village itself is famous of its ‘black willows’, it was a ‘witch town’ where all women had been poisoning the men to control the society in secret. Also there are many tales and stories about the castle and its owner Pipo. More interestingly there was a small village (Dadpuszta) on the area of the Festival, with many families and even one small school.

The first Festival took place in 1999 when there was a total Sun eclipse in the area: the famous Solipse. Almost 30 thousand people gathered from all over the world creating a new ritual.

The most important advice from us is to have fun. Second is to look out for each other. We are a big family so treat everyone with respect and help the ones in need.
