Beyonce, Coldplay, & More to Headline Global Citizen Festival 2015

The 4th annual Global Citizen Festival is shaping up to be an amazing show with Beyonce, Coldplay, and more acting as headliners!

The benefit concert, which aims to raise awareness to end poverty and improve the planet, will take place on the Great Lawn of Central Park on September 26 in New York City.

Ed Sheeran and Pearl Jam will also be taking part in the event.

“I am honored to be a part of the Global Citizen Festival,” Beyonce said in a statement. “It has always stood for improving the lives of people everywhere, but this year is especially rewarding as we all join focuses and utilize our talents for one goal: to end extreme poverty globally.”

The event is ticketed but is free – you can earn a ticket by completing an “action” of calling the U.S. State Department and asking them to set aside 50% of the U.S. foreign aid budget towards ending poverty. Find out more at the Global Citizen website.

The concert will air live on TV and will be broadcast on YouTube.

    I am not a Global Citizen. I am an American. Giving money to another celebrity charity like this or the Clinton Foundation, does nothing to stem poverty. It only enriches the uber rich.

    How convenient that Tidal is streaming the concert on it radio streaming app. Aren’t Chris Martin and Beyonce partial owners? Conflict of interest?

    I am the only person who thinks these concerts to “raise awareness” are junk and useless ?. poverty and the world’s problems will not improve just because a lot of narcissistic attention seekers are made to sing on stage
