My friend also separately won tickets. Can we stand together at the festival? 

Due to COVID-19, in order to keep social distance and avoid gatherings, we have different entrances. Your entrance will be shown on the ticket that will be sent to you a few days before the event.

In terms of where they will be situated, we are randomly allocating the tickets across the zones so we cannot guarantee that people who have won tickets separately will be in the same area. However, everyone who has a pair of tickets will be in the same area.

Will the concert be on screen or are the performances live?

The performances for Global Citizen Live in Paris will be live, onstage performances, not on-screen.

I have another question that’s not covered here.
