Help make a better world, and join the movement that's drawn over 60,000 people to Central Park's Great Lawn for 4 years running. An all-day music festival full of superstar acts, celebrity hosts, and world leaders, the Global Citizen Festival is an unforgettable celebration for everyday activists dedicated to eradicating extreme poverty and all its symptoms - from violence and disease, to lack of education and free water - by the year 2030. While this year's performers include Beyonce, Pearl Jam, Coldplay, and Ed Sheeran, red-carpet Hollywood royalty and UN diplomats will also take the stage for the day's cause.
