The Global Citizen Festival  

Synopsis

The Global Citizen movement continues its campaign to achieve a world without extreme poverty by 2030 with the third annual Global Citizen Festival, a free ticketed concert on the Great Lawn in Central Park.

This one hour NBC Television Network special – before a packed house of 60,000 fans – will feature some of today’s top music stars including Jay Z, No Doubt, fun., Tiësto, Carrie Underwood, and The Roots

Also available for broadcast will be the live 6-hour MSNBC broadcast of AEG Ehrlich Ventures’ production of the entire Global Citizens event, featuring incredible music performances, guest appearances by entertainment celebrities and heads of state (the United Nations General Assembly will be meeting in New York that week) as the Global Citizens movement continues its campaign to achieve a world without poverty by 2030.

This year’s Festival will build on previous Global Citizen Festivals, which in 2013, included performances by Stevie Wonder, John Mayer, Alicia Keys, Kings of Leon, and Elvis Costello, and in 2012, was headlined by Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, Band of Horses, K’NAAN and John Legend, and will aim to generate more than two million actions in support of the world’s poor. Since the Festival’s inception in 2012, actions taken by concertgoers have resulted in $1.3 billion dollars in new funding and 35 commitments from world leaders that directly benefit the world’s poor.
