On September 27, 2014, New Yorkers and guests will come together in an effort to eradicate World Poverty. To assist in the push, some of the biggest names in the music industry will work together and put on one of the year’s best music festivals for free. New York’s very own Jay Z will headline the Festival, and be joined by No Doubt, Tiësto, Carrie Underwood, The Roots and Fun. In fact, this will be the first show in two years that No Doubt has performed at together.
Global Citizen Festival will be a free-ticketed event on the Great Lawn of Central Park. To get tickets for this event, you must get involved in the cause. Festival seekers can ‘win’ tickets by performing activist actions on the Global Citizen online platform. Individuals are able to enter the draw for tickets up to 6 times, with 24,000 tickets up for grabs. While 80% of tickets are free, for those who wish, VIP tickets are available for purchase through their website.
The festival coincides with the United Nations General Assembly to help further draw attention to the issue of poverty. The event will be broadcast worldwide this year, so if you don’t get a ticket be sure to tune in at a local pub or even in your hotel room!
