I had a similar problem with flite (the light version of festival, which I recommend). 
It was giving me an error, that it couldn't open /dev/dsp. Which means flite 
(so possibly festival too) was programmed to use the old OSS drivers.
Check with /sbin/lsmod that you have snd_pcm_oss loaded. Also, if you
you get any error message when running festival, post it here, we 
may be able to tell more.
