OZY Fest’s lineup includes a range of celebrities and public figures including , John Legend, Rachael Ray, Jameela Jamil, Malcolm Gladwell, and Spike Lee. 

O’Rourke appears to be the only 2020 candidate OZY Fest has announced will appear during the two-day festival. 

He faces 24 other candidates in seeking the party nomination. 

Former Vice President , one of the primary candidates, attended last year’s OZY Fest and introduced his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, who was one of the event speakers. 

At the time Biden deflected a question from Katie Couric as to a potential 2020 White House run.
