The entire day’s worth of performances can be live-streamed on Prime Video. Even if you’re not a Prime member, you can still catch the Global Citizen Festival for free by signing up for a 30-day free trial.
But this festival is not just about music; it’s about driving global change. The timing of the festival is strategic, coinciding with a gathering of world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly in New York this September. Global Citizen, the organization behind the event, aims to leverage the festival and its associated initiatives to influence global leaders to take meaningful action on critical issues.
Global Citizen’s commitment to making a positive impact on the world doesn’t stop at Central Park. It follows in the footsteps of a similar large-scale global webcast concert held in France, titled “Power Our Planet: Live in Paris.” This event featured performances by renowned artists such as Billie Eilish, Jon Batiste, H.E.R., Lenny Kravitz, Finneas, and Ben Harper, set against the iconic backdrop of the Eiffel Tower. The concert was held to coincide with the Summit for a New Financial Pact, where world leaders convened to discuss pressing global challenges.
At the heart of the Global Citizen Festival are several crucial global issues. The event shines a spotlight on the global food and malnutrition crisis, drawing attention to the urgent need for solutions. It also highlights the unequal access to education, healthcare, and family planning faced by women and adolescent girls around the world. Another pressing concern addressed is climate change, with an emphasis on the necessity to financially support less developed nations in their efforts to combat climate-related challenges.
