As wealthy countries receive vaccinations against COVID-19 and enter a “new normal,” billions of people around the world are still unable to access vaccines. The global pandemic amplified our pre-existing inequalities as economies were turned upside down and poverty and hunger reached new heights. As hurricanes, wildfires, floods, and droughts — intensified by the climate crisis — continue to threaten those most vulnerable, the need for change is more urgent than ever.
On Saturday, Sept. 25, Global Citizen Live, our once-in-a-generation, 24-hour global broadcast event, is putting the most urgent issues to the forefront of our call to action to defend the planet and defeat poverty. We’re bringing together the biggest stars in the world to join our mission and use the strength of a unified voice to urge world leaders and big businesses to take action.
Because not everyone will have the opportunity to attend our events in person due to location or vaccine inequity, we will be broadcasting live on a multitude of platforms so you don’t have to miss a thing.
We’ve announced events taking place in Los Angeles, New York City, Paris, London, Lagos, Rio de Janeiro, Mumbai, and Sydney, with additional performances filmed at other locations around the world.
The broadcast event will be a global takeover, spanning 24 hours, and rallying citizens to join our missions to call on world leaders, philanthropists, and corporations to prioritize climate change, extreme hunger, and vaccine equity.
And this year, you won’t want to miss a second of our incredible lineup.
Artists and advocates donating their time and talent to the global broadcast include: Adam Lambert, Alessia Cara, Alok, Andrea Bocelli, Angélique Kidjo, Billie Eilish, Black Eyed Peas, BTS, Burna Boy, Camila Cabello, Charlie Puth, Christine and the Queens, Criolo, Coldplay, Cyndi Lauper, Davido, Deborra-Lee Furness, Delta Goodrem, Demi Lovato, Doja Cat, Duran Duran, Ed Sheeran, Elton John, Fatma Said, Femi Kuti, Green Day, H.E.R., Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lopez, Jon Batiste, Keith Urban, Kylie Minogue, Lang Lang, Liniker, Lizzo, Lorde, Made Kuti, Måneskin, Mart’nália, Meek Mill, Metallica, Mosquito, Nile Rodgers and Chic, Rag’n’Bone Man, Ricky Martin, Shawn Mendes, Stormzy, The Lumineers, Tiwa Savage, Tropkillaz, Usher, and more.
