Global Citizen Festival is an annual charity organized by the Global Poverty Project, with the aim of bringing attention to worldwide poverty. This year’s installment, set for Saturday, September 24th in New York’s Central Park, boasts a particularly impressive lineup headlined by Kendrick Lamar, Metallica, and Rihanna, along with special guest appearances from Eddie Vedder, Chris Martin, and Yusuf Islam, a.k.a. Cat Stevens.
Also taking the stage will be Major Lazer, Usher, Ellie Goulding, Selena Gomez, and Yandel, with more acts still to be announced.
“Over the last five years, Global Citizens around the world have taken more than 6 million actions in the fight against extreme poverty – actions that are set to affect the lives of over 650 million of the world’s most marginalized people. This year’s festival – and this incredible lineup – is an annual touch point to hold our world leaders to account on their commitments to solve the world’s biggest problems,” said Hugh Evans, CEO of Global Citizen.
The festival will be hosted by Chelsea Handler, Deborra-lee & Hugh Jackman, Neil Patrick Harris, Priyanka Chopra, Salma Hayek Pinault and Seth Meyers.
