Excited? Us too. Here’s what you need to know to start prepping for the big day; from when to arrive, to what’s on the menu, to what you’re allowed to bring to the venue. 

When and where is Power Our Planet: Live in Paris?

Power Our Planet: Live in Paris is happening on Thursday, June 22, 2023, on the Champ de Mars in Paris. The doors will open at 5 p.m. CET and it is highly recommended that attendees arrive early to allow plenty of time to go through security. Attendees will no longer be allowed to enter past 9 p.m. CET. The event will end at approximately 11:30 p.m. CET.

What do I need to bring?

The most important thing to bring with you is your ticket — so make sure you have enough battery on your phone! You can also print out your ticket and bring a physical copy. 

You do not need a matching ID at the gate with your ticket.

All tickets are allocated prior to the event and none will be sold or distributed on the day. Everyone needs a ticket to enter the venue, including all children. 

Bags that are 40 cm x 30 cm x 18 cm and smaller, or single-pocket drawstring bags, are allowed — but no backpacks. 

Empty plastic water bottles are permitted, but metal or glass bottles are not. There will be water stations on site to refill your water bottles once you’re through security.

We’ll also have plant-based food, beverages, and merch available to buy at the event, so don’t forget to bring cash or cards. 

Make sure to double check what you can't bring into the venue too — check our full list of prohibited items here

Are there lockers or storage available on site?

No, there is no space available to store items. Please ensure you read the list of restricted items on your ticket carefully. As a rule, only bring to the venue what you'll need. 

What should I not bring with me? 

Make sure you check our list of which items are prohibited from the venue

How do I download my tickets?

If you have successfully claimed your tickets, we will be sending them to you by email a couple of days before the show. Please make sure support@powerourplanetparis.fr is on your contacts list!

What time are the musical acts on?

We’re not releasing set times or the order of artists. With the amazing lineup, get there early to enjoy the whole show.

Is there parking available?

There is no parking available. We recommend that you leave plenty of time to arrive by public transport. The closest stations to the Champ de Mars are: Champ de Mars - Suffren, Pont D'Iéna, Champ de Mars, or Bir-Hakeim.

Where are the entrances located, and which gate do I use?

There are three different entrances to Champ de Mars. Please use the exact entrance indicated on your ticket.

What should I wear?

You should dress comfortably and in something you can have a good boogie in. 

Bring layers, suncream, a hat, and anything else you need so you're ready for any weather conditions — and make sure you have comfortable shoes on, as you'll be standing for most of the evening. 

Please note that the only bags permitted must be 40 cm x 30 cm x 18 cm or smaller in size or single-pocket drawstring bags. No backpacks please! 

I have a disability. Is there anything extra I should be aware of?

Please reach out to support@powerourplanetparis.fr who will be able to help provide more information.

What do I do if there’s an emergency?

Security personnel will be trained to deal with any and all emergencies. Follow the directions of security personnel and pay attention to instructions from Global Citizen. There will be enhanced lighting and signs showing exit paths out of the site.

What do I do about food and water?

You cannot bring in your own food and drink. 

There will be plant-based food and drink vendors. 

You can bring in an empty reusable water bottle, and you'll be able to refill it at water stations. Note: Any metal or glass water bottles are not allowed and will be confiscated. 

Can I bring my kids?

The show is for all ages, but everyone entering the site, regardless of age, will need a valid ticket. Minors must be accompanied by an adult.

Can I sell my ticket or gift it to another person?

Tickets cannot be sold on a secondary market for any reason — this is considered using our platform in bad faith, and is explicitly forbidden in our terms and conditions. 

You can, however, give a spare ticket to another Global Citizen or give both of your tickets to a friend by emailing them the PDF.

Do my guests and I need IDs to enter?

No, you don’t need to bring any ID, and your guest will still be able to get into the festival if your name is on their ticket.

Can I charge my phone on site?

There won’t be any charging stations on site. You can, however, bring in a small, portable phone charger.

Please be aware that like all big events, cell service can be spotty given the number of people on the Champ de Mars, and there isn’t Wi-Fi available. 

Can I go in and out of the site?

No, once you have left the site, you will not be allowed to re-enter. Last entry is at 9 p.m.

What is Global Citizen doing to make the event environmentally-friendly?

As an advocacy organization that campaigns on defending the planet — and writes extensively on the challenges of climate change and biodiversity loss — we like to practice what we preach. 

Instead of fossil fuels, we’ll be using an alternative that results in up to 95% less greenhouse gas emissions to keep the lights on and the music going; a single-use plastic ban; and there are composting and recycling bins galore.

In fact, there will be an enhanced waste management and recycling program throughout the entire site (including all backstage and technical areas) to collect these items and get them to the appropriate facilities to be recycled, reused, and composted. The site will be continuously cleaned and any collected waste will be sorted appropriately.  

The site infrastructure is also all rented and reusable, from the stage to the plants and the tents. The large red circle scenic piece on the stage will be stored for future use. The remaining scenic pieces will be recycled and/or reused for future projects.  

Water is available for free on the event site and we encourage you to bring an empty plastic bottle to fill up at the event. There will also be water available at concessions that are in tetra pack packaging.
