Beyoncè and Jay-Z will be headlining the Global Citizen Festival this December in Johannesburg. Global Citizen Festival is a free and ticketless concert that rallies celebs, politicians and global leaders with the aim to end extreme poverty.
The festival has been held in a bunch of cities all over the world, such as New York, London, Mumbai, Montreal and more, and will now be hosted in South Africa!
Apart from Beyoncé and Jay-Z, the star-studded line-up includes Ed Sheeran, Usher, Chris Martin, Pharrell Williams and others, while our very own Nigerian artists such as Tiwa Savage, Wizkid, and Femi Kuti will also be performing at this festival.
The festival is the culmination of Global Citizen’s “Mandela 100” campaign, which is done in partnership with the House of Mandela; a series of global events held to honour the life and legacy of the legendary Nelson Mandela in his centenary year.
Speaking about this festival, the CEO of Global Citizen said:
“We’re not interested in doing just a really big rock concert because there are enough really big rock concerts around the world.
At the heart of what we do is the belief that if we can mobilise a movement of a hundred million global citizens who use their collective influence to encourage governments to adopt policies, that would alleviate poverty.”
Global Citizen aims to rally $1 billion in new commitments, with $500 million of that set to impact the lives of 20 million women and girls worldwide. Their main focus areas will be: ending poverty and hunger, promoting good health and well-being, quality education, gender equality and more.
What better way to get people involved in a good cause than to bait them with the biggest stars in the world right now?! Much like all other Global Citizen’s festivals, this one is completely free, and you can get tickets from August 21 by registering right here.
Hopefully, we’ll get a chance to see Beyoncé and Jay-Z in concert in Nigeria soon!
