Global Citizen: Metallica, Jonas Brothers among headliners for concert in NYC, Ghana airing on ABC

International advocacy group Global Citizen announced the program for its 10th Anniversary Global Citizen Festival taking place September 24 in New York City and Ghana.

The Central Park lineup includes Metallica, Charlie Puth, Jonas Brothers, Maneskin, Mariah Carey, Mickey Guyton and Rosalia, with more to be announced.

Global Citizen Festival: NYC will be hosted by actress, producer, author and Global Citizen Ambassador Priyanka Chopra Jonas.

Taking place at Black Star Square in Accra, Ghana, the lineup includes Usher, SZA, Stormzy, Gyaki, HER, Sarkodie, Stonebwoy and Tems, with more to be announced.

Since it began illuminating Central Park’s Great Lawn in 2012, the Global Citizen Festival has grown into the world’s longest-running global campaign calling for an end to extreme poverty and uniting millions of voices, represented by the world’s greatest artists amplified and urging world leaders to act .

Globally, the disproportionate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has pushed almost 100 million more people into extreme poverty, reversing recent trends of decreasing inequality, resulting in a loss of at least three years of progress.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has further aggravated the situation, with up to 323 million people now suffering from acute hunger and 1.2 billion people now living in countries experiencing a perfect storm of food, energy and financial crises.

The 2022 Global Citizen Festival will call on world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly and ahead of the G20 and COP27 in November to get involved and invest $600 million in the future of women and girls to close the $10 billion annual climate finance deficit and deliver $500 million to help African farmers respond to the global food crisis and relieve urgent debt from debt-crushing to support the to end extreme poverty.

“Decades of systemic and political failure have pushed humanity into the midst of converging and rapidly worsening crises — climate, hunger, health, war and conflict,” said Hugh Evans, co-founder and CEO of Global Citizen. “The most marginalized communities are paying the price for the stagnant inaction of our leaders, and now millions of lives and the future of our planet are at stake. We refuse to just stand by and watch when solutions are ready. We demand a secure future for girls everywhere. We demand that governments deliver on their climate finance promises. We are demanding debt relief that is unfairly crushing economies. And we demand action NOW while there is still time to alter our collective trajectory.”

Tickets to the festivals are free and can be purchased by downloading the Global Citizen app or by visiting GlobalCitizen.org to take action on campaign themes.

Broadcasts and streaming from Accra and New York City air on ABC, ABC News Live, FX, Hulu and other media.

The ABC News Live show will air on Saturday, September 24, and a primetime special, Global Citizen Festival: Take Action NOW, will air on Sunday, September 25 at 7pm ET/6pm CT on ABC.

More tuning details will be released in the coming weeks.
