Global Citizen Festival Lineup

An impressive lineup of artists and influential figures is set to make the 2023 Global Citizen Festival a powerful event. Scheduled for September 23 on Central Park’s Great Lawn in New York City, the festival is organized by the international advocacy group Global Citizen.

Joining the roster are Anitta, D-Nice, and Sofia Carson, along with dignitaries like José Ramos-Horta, President of Timor-Leste, Governor Helder Barbalho, and State Secretary for Indigenous People Puyr Tembé from the Brazilian State of Pará. The festival will also showcase appearances from renowned advocates and stars like Bill Nye, Bridget Moynahan, and Common, with headliners including Red Hot Chili Peppers and Ms. Lauryn Hill.

The festival campaign’s core mission is to prompt governments to tackle the systemic challenges that drive extreme poverty. Initiatives range from urging the UK Government and Labour Opposition to fulfill climate financing pledges to encouraging the Government of Canada to support women’s health through UNFPA funding. Additionally, the event aims to raise awareness about the global food crisis and advocate for freedom of speech protection.

With the number of people living in extreme poverty rising for the first time in years, the festival aims to reverse this trend and address pressing global issues. Attendees can secure free tickets by engaging with the Global Citizen app or visiting their website.

Global Citizen is excited about the event’s impact, with SVP Katie Hill expressing enthusiasm for the collaboration between artists, advocates, and attendees. The festival’s broadcast, produced by Done and Dusted, will be accessible worldwide through various platforms including ABC, Apple Music, Prime Video, and more.

The festival’s cause is endorsed by a multitude of global partners and supported by various organizations dedicated to addressing pressing challenges. For those interested in participating, the official Global Citizen website and social media channels provide further information.
