This tiny southern Transdanubian settlement of Hungary’s Tolna County, Ozora has an unbelievably old history dating back to the Stone Age.

Ancient people had chosen to gather and settle here, protected by the surrounding hills, Mother Nature gifting them with abundant fishing and hunting grounds.

Ozora has been remarkably spared from the unkind influences of materialistic exaggerations, leaving it green-breathing and human-scale. However it also takes an glorified place in Hungarian history.

The site of the victorious battle of 1848 – its heroes inscribed in gold in all Hungarian historical chronicles, is also home to Pipo de Ozora’s Castle, a symbolic landmark, standing proudly to this very day outstanding in its individuality and homeyness among all other castles of its age.

In a more recent past, in 1999, a year similarly unfathomable as the one lying ahead of us thirteen years later, Ozora was reborn as the site of a monumental solipse festival. Thousands of people gathered from all around the world to be a part of that uplifting and apocalyptic feeling of the total eclipse of the sun, celebrating it with goa music energies.

Since then nine festivals had taken place, each one strengthening that one-of-a-kind togetherness and spiritual reformation that keeps it throbbing with life.

ozora2In light of last year’s 10th festival held in Ozora, in light of the mysticism of the year 2012 and the newest one that follows the end of the world, in light of all that has enriched us with an Ozora experience, we still have only one thing in mind. Respecting and nurturing the valued traditions, treasures, for free spirits, paradise on earth, our fairy tale. A playground where we learn to share and care, to express, connect, unify, beautify the world around us, in us. A universe of openness, togetherness, reaching out to cosmic energies, to nature, to wholeness through dance, trance, creation, invention, transformation and peace.

A festival where caring for each other, for our world is as important as our love for all living beings, Ozora 2013 would like nothing more than to grow more and more as an ecologically conscious gathering as well.

The festival strives to bring forth the soulsome creators from each one of you, from all of us. Reaching out to the deepest realms of your imagination and displaying, sharing that glorious, that grotesque, that unparalleled treasure you find is one of the pillars of the Ozora experience. Expressions of creativity are as manifold and unique as we ourselves, so we definitely encourage the participation of each and every one of you – to experience, to collaborate and share. The festival is home to all kinds of artistic, creative and enlightening projects, activities, workshops, performances and exhibitions. Therefore the full week-long artistic program will host a vibrant variety of international, national and local visual and performance artists.
