Oswego, NY — SUNY Oswego will be hosting its first in-person OzFest since 2019, after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The end-of-semester celebration will feature daytime activities from noon to 4 p.m. and a concert in the evening.

At 7 p.m., OzFest will feature performances from R&B and hip-hop artists B-Lovee, Angelo Mota and headliner Ari Lennox in the Deborah F. Stanley Arena and Convocation Hall. 

In previous years, the OzFest concert has featured artists such as Big Sean, Mac Miller and Ella Mai. However, some students like junior Jarrad Wakefield are questioning whether the event is worth the $200,000 budget.  

Tickets are available from the SUNY Oswego box office or online on tickets.oswego.edu for $15.

Oswego State Men’s lacrosse is looking to make playoffs, if they win their match against SUNY Brockport this weekend. The Lakers men’s lacrosse will play Brockport on April 29 at 7 p.m. Coverage of the game will be broadcast on WTOP10 and WNYO88.9 at 7 p.m.
