Pearl Jam, Beyonce to Headline Global Citizen Festival
Now in its fourth iteration, the Global Citizen Festival has just announced headliners for the one-day festival. This year’s performers are Pearl Jam, Beyonce, Ed Sheeran and Coldplay. Wowzas! Since it takes place in Central Park and the tickets are free, come prepared for a massive line and massive crowd. The show will be Saturday, September 26.
So what’s it all about? This is being billed as a “free ticketed festival,” so while it won’t cost you any dough to get in, you still have to have a ticket in hand (and perform some philanthropy). It’s about people helping people, and to get a ticket, you, well, have to help people. Complete a variety of tasks on the festival’s website, and you can go to the show. You can “take action and earn points” (as the site says) in four categories: education, health, women’s equality, and global partner ships. Get enough points, and you can be entered into a lottery to see these killer performers (and more) for free. You can find out more about tickets at the festival’s website.
