The Global Citizen movement continues its campaign to achieve a world without extreme poverty by 2030 with the third annual Global Citizen Festival, a free ticketed concert on the Great Lawn in Central Park. The 2014 Global Citizen festival will be headlined by world famous Dutch dj Tiësto, No Doubt, Jay-Z, Carrie Underwood, fun. and The Roots, on Saturday, September 27, 2014.
World renowned headliner Tiësto stated, “I am very excited to perform at this year’s Global Citizen Festival and continue my support for protecting the world’s children. I’m asking my fans to join me and call on our world leaders to bring about real change that will help our children live healthy, strong lives.”
The Festival coincides with the UN General Assembly and will serve as high-profile platform to call for tangible commitments from world leaders in the areas of vaccines, education and sanitation. Major campaigns tied to this year’s Festival include: securing contributions for the GAVI Alliance and the Global Partnership for Education, and building momentum by citizens for the GAVI Alliance and the Global Partnership for Education, and building momentum by citizens for the Water for the World Act, a Congressional bill that will support efforts to benefit the 1.25 billion women and girls that currently go without safe access to sanitation.
All 48.000 general admissions have been distributed. For possibilities to still be a part of the Global Citizen Festival click here.
