Global Citizen Festival has announced the lineup for next month’s 10th anniversary edition.
On Sept. 24, the fest will return to New York City’s Central Park, where the international advocacy organization held its inaugural event in 2012. Hosted by Global Citizen ambassador Priyanka Chopra Jonas, the NYC portion of the festivities will see live performances from Mariah Carey, Charlie Puth, Metallica, the Jonas Brothers, Måneskin, Mickey Guyton, and Rosalía.
Meanwhile, to celebrate the 65th anniversary of Ghana’s independence and 20 years since the formation of the African Union, Global Citizen is hosting an additional concert in Accra, Ghana, which will include performances from Usher, SZA, Stormzy, Gyakie, H.E.R., Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, and Tems.
“Decades of systemic and political failures have led humanity into the midst of converging and rapidly deteriorating crises—climate, hunger, health, war and conflict,” Global Citizen co-founder and CEO Hugh Evans said in a press release.
“The most marginalized populations are paying the price of the stagnant inaction of our leaders, and now millions of lives, and the future of our planet, are at stake,” Evans continued. “We refuse to just stand by and watch! We refuse to accept the starvation of multitudes when solutions are readily at hand. We demand a secure future for girls everywhere. We demand governments keep their promises on climate funding. We demand relief from debts unjustly crushing economies. And we demand action NOW, while there’s still time to change our collective trajectory.”
The 2022 Global Citizen Festival will be broadcast and streamed on ABC, ABC News Live, FX, Hulu, iHeartRadio, TimesLIVE, Twitter, and YouTube.
