New York's Central Park, the site of countless iconic concerts, will once again aim for the history books when fans fill the lawn for the Global Citizen Festival. Headlined by the Black Keys, Foo Fighters, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Band of Horses and K'Naan, the show aims to be the biggest syndicated music charity webcast and broadcast ever.
The Global Citizen Festival will bring these artists and 60,000 change makers together to urge leaders and fellow citizens to do more to help end extreme poverty.
This advocacy concert will celebrate the progress already made in fighting extreme poverty, secure financial commitments for tackling extreme poverty and disease, and mobilise thousands of ambassadors for change. We'll unite around a simple yet powerful idea: that by giving every child a chance to thrive, our generation can end extreme poverty.
