OZ Fest is this Friday and here’s what you need to know

This year, students can expect an exciting lineup of artists playing at UNF’s Coxwell Amphitheater. If the music isn’t for you, maybe the food trucks, airbrush tattoos and oxygen bar at the event are.

Before OZ Fest kicks off, the most important thing that you should be worrying about is getting your ticket. You can pick up a ticket at the Osprey Productions table in the Student Union Wednesday or you can go to the UNF Box Office, Building 8, Room 1100. Tickets are free to students and $20 a piece for others.

If you’ve already obtained your ticket, then it’s important to know what you can’t bring with you to the show, according to Osprey Productions.

DON’T BRING: Glow sticks, rave sticks, large purses, large bags, backpacks, chairs, skateboards, bikes, beverages, illicit drugs or drug paraphernalia, coolers, professional cameras or cameras with removable lenses, video cameras, food, pets (service animals allowed), signs, weapons and umbrellas.

The doors to the event open at 5 p.m. and the first act takes the stage at 7 p.m. From 7 p.m. to roughly 9:30 p.m., you can watch Master Radical, Palm Trees and Power Lines, The Mowglis, Daya and Tove Lo perform.

Originally, Matt and Kim were to be playing, but because of an injury Kim sustained at a recent show, the duo can no longer make it. Osprey Productions acted quickly and managed to get Tove Lo as a replacement.

While these musicians are performing, there are plenty of other things to do. There will be a ferris wheel, a gravitron, as well as henna art, airbrush tattoos, body art and even balloon creatures.

For something a little different, there will be an oxygen bar where students can grab a cannula and breathe in pure, concentrated oxygen. To make it a little more exciting, you can get your oxygen scented. It’s like breathing, but better.

If you’re wondering about food and drinks, there will be three food trucks: Nitro Creameries, The Happy Grilled Cheese and Delish Kabobs. For vegetarians and vegans, Delish Kabobs will have you covered with multiple options.

The musical performances are set to end around 9:30 p.m., but the festival itself ends at 10 p.m., giving you just enough time to catch a ride or grab a bite to eat after you’re done watching Tove Lo.
