Do I need to be vaccinated to attend Global Citizen Live in Los Angeles?

To ensure the health and safety of everyone at Global Citizen Live, all guests must be fully vaccinated and will be required to show proof of vaccination. “Fully vaccinated” means that it has been at least 14 days after the second dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine, or at least 14 days after a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine.

As this is an inclusive, all-ages show, exceptions will be made for guests who are not able to be vaccinated due to age restrictions, on medical advice, or inability to access vaccinations. These guests must present a negative PCR test from within 72 hours of the start of the show to gain entry.

What will be accepted as proof of vaccination? 

Guests must provide a physical vaccine card, photo of vaccine card showing the batch number, or a Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record from the State of California to prove vaccination status. Vaccine status and photo IDs will be checked by security before entry.

Will masks be required for attendees? 

Face masks are required for all attendees at all times regardless of vaccination status; face masks must cover the nose and mouth and must be either a two-ply disposable or reusable/washable facemask.

Neck gaiters, bandanas, and facemasks with vents are not permitted. Security will monitor and enforce compliance with face covering per the venue policy.

What is the security screening like?

The safety and security of every attendee of Global Citizen events is our top concern. Every person attending the festival can expect a thorough screening (similar to airport-style) at the gates.

What can I bring inside the venue for Global Citizen Live in Los Angeles?

Items allowed inside the Greek Theatre include: one (1) factory-sealed plastic bottle per person; an empty reusable water bottle; a small point and shoot camera with non-detachable lenses that can fit in the front pants pocket. Strollers are permitted in the venue but are not permitted in any seating areas. Strollers are to be checked and held at Guest Services.

Guests are also permitted to bring in clutches or wallets smaller than 4.5” x 6.5” x 1” and medical and parental bags smaller than 12” x 12” x 6”, which are subject to search. Please leave anything larger at home or in your vehicle.

Can I buy tickets to Global Citizen Live in Los Angeles?

Yes. There are a limited number of tickets on sale at Ticketmaster here

Can I sell my Global Citizen Live tickets? 

Tickets you’ve won by taking action with Global Citizen are free but cannot be sold on a secondary market place for any reason. Ticket resellers will take down any Global Citizen Live ticket sales and Global Citizen will cancel any tickets that do come up for sale — so if you buy them, you won’t be able to get into the show.

We’ve set out the rules in the Terms & Conditions and will remove people who break the rules from all draws.
