A once-in-a-generation festival to defend the planet and defeat poverty is coming to you this Sunday.

On Sept. 26, Global Citizen Live will bring together the world’s biggest artists and changemakers from across seven continents for one massive 24-hour broadcast event to try and make the world a better, more equitable place.

Beamed from London, Lagos, Paris, New York City, Rio de Janeiro, Seoul, Sydney, Mumbai, Los Angeles and more, and featuring artists like Kylie Minogue, Shawn Mendes, Delta Goodrem, 5 Seconds of Summer, Metallica, Elton John, Ed Sheeran and Coldplay — this is clearly an event you are not going to want to miss.

We’ve laid out exactly how Australians, New Zealanders and those in the Pacific can join millions around the world to watch while simultaneously taking action to call on world leaders, philanthropists and corporations to prioritise climate change, extreme hunger and vaccine equity.


Here are all the ways people across the nation can watch the show with us. 

Australians, as you’re watching Sunday, see if you can count many incredible artists from down under you can spot throughout the show. Keep a particular eye out for epic performances from Australia’s sweetheart Delta Goodrem from the iconic Sydney Opera House later in the evening.
