MythBusters for Students

Welcome! If you made it this far you are either a fan of the popular television program MythBusters, curious about new music, interested in life-changing experiences, or all of the above. Rest assured, you have come to the right place. Although we lack the funding for a full-fledged MythBusting operation, we can challenge common Ojai Music Festival myths using verifiable facts. 

Myth #1: I am a student, and the Ojai Music Festival is too expensive. Other concerts and music festivals are so much cheaper!  

A student or educator can attend all four days of the Ojai Music Festival for $35 dollars – that includes ten concerts from master musicians, composers, and improvisers, pop-up concerts in Libbey Park, and exclusive student events. 

Myth Rating: BUSTED

Myth #2: Ojai is in the middle of nowhere.

Ojai has a unique energy – with its pink sunsets, surrounding mountains, and clear night skies – but we do not think it terribly difficult to get to from Los Angeles (90 minutes) or Santa Barbara (45 minutes). These estimates (which we have tested many times) assume you plan your trip in order to avoid rush hour traffic. 


Myth #3: The music is too weird. 

Audiences and artists enter the Festival with a sense of curiosity and adventure – so yes, that can get weird, but not too weird. If you are open-minded, then creative, innovative music will open itself to you. Ojai Talks, our program notes, and information on this website should dispel inaccessibility myths. If you have a heart, a mind, and open ears, this music is for you.

Myth Rating: BUSTED 

Myth #4: Lodging is too expensive

This one is true. We are working on ways to cut lodging costs for future Festivals, but we suggest camping or staying in Ventura or Santa Paula.
