Pharrell Williams, Queen, Adam Lambert and Alicia Keys will headline the 2019 Global Citizen Festival, set to take place in New York City’s Central Park on September 28th. The lineup also features H.E.R., OneRepublic and Carole King — the latter last performing in Central Park in 1973. Special guest performances include French Montana, Ben Platt and Jon Batiste & Stay Human.
The festival will be hosted by Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee Furness, while co-hosts include Rachel Brosnahan, Bill Nye, Rami Malek, Matt Bomer, Elvis Duran, Taraji P. Henson, Joy Reid and Forest Whitaker. Admission for the festival is free; tickets can be obtained by downloading the Global Citizen app. Ticket draws occur throughout the summer and fans will be notified when they’ve been selected.
“I can’t wait to return to the Global Citizen Festival stage this year,” Pharrell said. “From New York to South Africa, and everywhere in between, this movement is so inspiring. Everyone who attends the festival is fighting for our future and to make the world a better place, and that is something that I am incredibly proud to be a part of.”
