10 of the Best Crowd Shots From Past Global Citizen Festivals

The Global Citizen Festival is a celebration of the millions of Global Citizens around the world who are committed to ending the injustice of poverty. It's a chance for artists, dignitaries, celebrities, and businesses to say thank you to the countless people making a difference in big and small ways everywhere. It's also a way for the power of the Global Citizen movement to be visualized — a sea of united people in one of the most iconic parks in the world.  

Some of the most astonishing images of past festivals are crowd shots — people cheering, dancing, and raptly listening. 

Here are the top 10 crowd shots from past festivals.
