How to Earn Tickets to the Global Citizen Festival 2017

The Global Citizen Festival is a free, ticketed concert that brings together musicians, world leaders, and global citizens in an effort to influence positive change on a global scale.

Last year’s festival drew a crowd of 60,000 to Central Park, but the effects of commitments made by world leaders on stage reached over 199 million people worldwide.

Ready to Take Action? Get Started Now

Just two weeks ago, Global Citizen held a concert in Hamburg, Germany, and the results were just as impressive. With more than 11,000 Global Citizens in the crowd, Hamburg heard $706 million worth of commitments be made by world leaders and luminaries.

With global citizens like you, we hope to make this year’s 6th annual festival even more successful.
