International advocacy organization Global Citizen announced the lineup for their 10th anniversary Global Citizen Festival.
Global Citizen Festival is Back With A-Level Performers
Global Citizen will host two festivals taking place on the same date, September 24. One of them will be in New York City’s Central Park and the other one in Accra, Ghana. In the last ten years, the festival has become the world’s longest-running global campaign calling for an end to extreme poverty. Every year, it unites millions of voices, amplified by the world’s biggest artists, demanding world leaders take action now.
Performers on the Central Park stage in New York City will include Metallica, Charlie Puth, Jonas Brothers, MÅNESKIN, Mariah Carey, Mickey Guyton, and Rosalía. Correspondingly, Global Citizen Ambassador Priyanka Chopra Jonas will host the event.
Marking the 65th anniversary of Ghana’s independence and the 20th anniversary of the African Union, Accra’s iconic Black Star Square will see live performances from Usher, SZA, Stormzy, Gyakie, H.E.R., Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, and Tems.
