The line-up for this year’s Global Citizen Charity festival has been announced, with some impressive artists in the headline slots.
Coldplay, Beyoncé, Pearl Jam and Ed Sheeran are all set to perform at the one-day event, held in aid of the Global Poverty project. Currently in it’s fourth year, the festival will take place at the Great Lawn in Central Park, New York on 26th September.
Speaking of the upcoming event, Coldplay frontman and festival curator, Chris Martin stated: “We are so proud to be playing this year’s Global Citizen Festival. We love the Global Citizen movement and we love opening for Beyoncé so this ticks both boxes.”
The goal of the benefit event is to raise awareness of the United Nations’ measures to fight inequality, protect the earth and end extreme poverty by 2030.
Tickets for the festival are free and available when you promote the cause of the Global Poverty Project online. However, for those who cannot attend the show, the event will be able to stream on YouTube.
