Crowds packed Central Park all day and night for the annual Global Citizen Festival. Thousands came together for the star-studded event with a much bigger goal in mind. This year’s festival headlined by Pharrell Williams, Queen, Adam Lambert, Alicia Keys among others. The festival took on the heels of the U.N. General Assembly and many of the global themes discussed by world leaders were front and center at the event, including climate change. Music was the instrument uniting more than 60,000 people who filled the great lawn for the eighth annual event. The Global Citizen movement is aimed at pressuring world leaders to end extreme poverty by 2030. Photos by T. Wargo.

Pharrell Williams, Stevie Wonder, Green Day, The Lumineers, The Killers, and The Chainsmokers are set to headline the Sept. 23 Global Citizen Festival, the annual concert in Central Park that blends music and social activism. The event, now in its sixth New York iteration, will also feature performances by Big Sean, Andra Day, and Alessia Cara, organizers announced Tuesday.
“We try to bring in artists from multiple genres. We don’t want to just hit the rock demographic or just hit the pop demographic or just hit the R&B demographic or just hit the EDM demographic,” Evans told Variety. “Whatever music you’re into, you can come to the Global Citizen Festival and be part of it, because ultimately our hope is that the message transcends the music, that we’re the generation that sees the end of poverty in our lifetime.”
