The Global Citizen Festival – September, NYC
New Yorkers are excited when September is around the corner, because The Global Poverty Project puts on the Global Citizen festival, an event promoting the movement to end extreme poverty. The Global Poverty Project is an advocacy organization committed to building a strong movement to end extreme poverty by 2030. Each September, Global Citizen’s founder Hugh Evans and Coldplay’s Chris Martin bring together global leaders, music artists and global citizens for the largest concert in Central Park’s history, called the Global Citizen Festival. Performers include Beyonce, No Doubt, Usher, Mary J. Blige, Fall Out Boy, Jay Z, Coldplay, My Morning Jacket and many more. The concert is televised and hosted by major celebrities like Stephen Colbert and Hugh Jackman. Tickets are free, but must be ‘earned’, and it’s well worth it because the lineup is always incredible.
