O.Z.O.R.A. is the space of our alternate reality which we build up ourselves and with each other year-by-year. People from all around the world come to this exceptionally unblemished haven of nature for a whole week to share their own worlds and their emotions and thoughts with each other.
It’s 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.
In 1999 you could see the total eclipse of the sun from Hungary. Ozora was the perfect place for the one-day-long open-air celebration and more than 20, 000 people took part in the event. Five years later in 2004 the happening came to life again: the tribe recaptured the Valley under the name of Sonar Plexus. From 2005 it started growing as O.Z.O.R.A. Festival and by 2010 it had become one of the world's most influential psychedelic tribal gatherings.
The festival is a continuous realization of a conscious, well composed concept, expanding and evolving right before your eyes, and at the peak of which last year stood the Main Stage and the two towers appearing on the dancefloor, which with their animated day and night-time visions acted as forerunners of the overall composition you'll experience for the first time this year.
The creators of the Main Stage decoration in 2014 will be the festival's own team, he O.Z.O.R.A. Deco Team, made up of people who live and breathe with the festival 365 days a year.
Though many Ozorian Crew members also play a part in the creation process, most of the work, including the final designs, artistic concept and realization will be done by the TRIXX Deco Team who have been proving themselves worthy of creating amazing deco and visuals for 15 years on the scene and at the festival. We mustn't forget to mention the crew responsible for the festival's technical-mechanical elements and especially SOULDUST, who's bringing the towers to life and is, by the way, one of the very first of the Hungarian goa/psy deco designers and creators.

An entity on its own within the festival, has existed from the very beginning, since the 1999 Solipse. Since the rebirth of O.Z.O.R.A., Pumpui has always been more than a simple location. It is a manifold communal space - where you can wake up having breakfast, relax while snacking, enjoy your daily cinema input and also experience your best before- and after-partying. During the past few years their stage was home to the cream of the local and foreign performers.

more visionary art. KEYWORDS: family farming, crystallography and the Voronoi concept.
MIRADOR - The new tower and art gallery of Visionary Art crowns and elevates not only the new exhibition area but also the colorfulness of the festival's overall visual culture, a new addition to the endlessly evolving and expanding playground experience. This new Ozorian landmark stands for an especially thrilling and spectacular milestone in our culture. A tower of visionary art, both a lookout and an outlook on an alternative visual world, offering insight into the mind, imagination, worldview and soul of the artists, opening windows unto the abyss above and below. As we call it, Mirador, where technical and artistic inventiveness and exploration is interwoven with psychedelic, spiritual and mystic atmospheres and symbols, where the festival's musical universe and ancient transcendental cultures merge into an even deeper and more lasting multisensory experience. The tower art gallery will also be home to some amazing live painting, workshops and lectures by e.g. Android Jones (USA), Re:Sorb (DE), Ihti Anderson (UKR), The Vienna Academy of Visionary Art (A / I), Laurence Caruana (FR), Martin Cash (USA), Timea Tallian (A), Benedetto Fellin (A), Quen Di (SK), Inkbrushnme (IN), Jake Kobrin (USA), Subliquida (I), Bios (HU), Emma Watkinson (UK), NekoPix (HU), Norbert Papp (HU), Manu Morvan (FR), Daniel Rotenberg (IS) and many more artworks from other visionary artists.
We hope you love it as much as we do! And always stay visionary!
The first Ozorian Prophet was published at Ozora in 2012 in an edition of 5000 copies daily for 1 week during the festival. Since October 2012 the Prophet is issued monthly online with the latest news and curiosities with the same layout in PDF. From January 2014 we started the online version. About our goals:
