Frequently Asked Questions

Where and when is the 2018 Global Citizen Festival?

This year’s Global Citizen Festival New York is taking place on Sept. 29, 2018, in NYC’s Central Park on the Great Lawn.

Who are the artists involved in this year’s Festival?

This year’s lineup includes Janet Jackson, The Weeknd, Shawn Mendes, Cardi B, Janelle Monáe, with special guest John Legend, and lead hosts Deborra-lee Furness and Hugh Jackman.

Our host committee includes Kal Penn, Katie Holmes, Rachel Brosnahan, Forest Whitaker, Gus Kenworthy, Danai Gurira, La La Anthony, Camren Bicondova, and Cynthia Erivo and more to be announced.

How does the festival help end extreme poverty?

Global Citizen believes in the power of advocacy. Rather than ask individuals to contribute money to support specific programs on the ground, we work with world leaders to make large financial commitments to support things like girls education, building toilets, robust foreign aid programs, and more. Global Citizens take actions to earn their way into the festival. These actions tell leaders the changes we want to see in the world.
