Written by Smooth FM on July 30, 2019
The 2019 Global Citizen Festival will rock you.
Queen + Adam Lambert, Pharrell Williams, Alicia Keys, OneRepublic, H.E.R., and Carole King are among the top talent booked to perform at this year’s event, organizers Global Citizen announced Tuesday morning.
This 2019 edition will take place Sept. 28 on the Great Lawn in Central Park in New York City, with Deborra-lee Furness and Hugh Jackman returning as hosts.
Also confirmed for special guest performances are French Montana, Ben Platt, and Jon Batiste & Stay Human, and co-hosts on the day include Taraji P. Henson, Bill Nye and Rami Malek, whose star turn as Freddie Mercury in the Bohemian Rhapsody biopic earned him several awards, including the Oscar for best actor.
Global Citizen, the social advocacy group, hosts the free, ticketed show each year to raise awareness of its goal to end extreme poverty by 2030.
In the past, Global Citizen attendees have earned their tickets through the completion of various social actions through the festival’s app, such as signing petitions or contacting legislators.
