The O+ Festival is an annual three-day celebration of art, music, and wellness that takes place in Kingston, NY, featuring an eclectic music lineup, visual and public art performances and activations, and community wellness events.

Submissions for Clinic Providers are open now for O+ Festival 2024.

Behind the scenes, O+ brings together hundreds of local health & wellness practitioners with artists and musicians to participate in a radical exchange model that provides vital healthcare services to underinsured creatives in the Hudson Valley and beyond. We call this exchange “the art of medicine for the medicine of art.”

Since its inception in 2010, O+ has facilitated thousands of medical, dental, and wellness treatments for artists, musicians, and creatives.

In 2023, we established a year-round, exchange-based clinic for artists and musicians in Kingston, expanding the services provided at the O+ Festival into a sustainable model for care available 365 days a year.
