As the summer winds down, several high-profile names will take to New York’s most famous park in the name of progressive action around the planet.

On September 24th the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna, Usher, Major Lazer and others will hit the Great Lawn of Central Park for the fifth Global Citizen Festival. The goal of the free concert, which brings in an estimated 60,000 people each year, is to “harness actions from millions of Global Citizens around the world to hold world leaders accountable to the progress made toward achieving the Global Goals set out by the United Nations last year,” the festival promotes via statement.


Per usual, guests have to participate in its social action platforms in order to gain entry. Additionally, guests can also purchase a limited number of VIP tickets at Ticketmaster on July 28th. For the rest, the event will be live-streamed on Global Citizen’s YouTube page.
