Global Citizen Festival 2016 features Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar and more

Andrew Frisicano

You can already earn tickets to this year's Global Citizen Festival at Central Park's Great Lawn on Saturday, September 24. But so far there's been no word on who's actually playing the show. Well, this year's lineup is here, and it's pretty impressive. Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Selena Gomez, Major Lazer and Metallica are all headliners. Special guest performers include Chris Martin, Eddie Vedder, Usher, Ellie Goulding, Yandel and Yusuf "Cat" Stevens. Hosts include Chelsea Handler, Deborra-Lee and Hugh Jackman, Neil Patrick Harris, Priyanka Chopra, Salma Hayek Pinault and Seth Meyers.

This will be the sixth year for the Global Citizen Festival, which encourages activism on a range of issues in exchange for free tickets to the show. One of the main aims of the 2016 concert is to "help promote and ensure that equitable and quality education is available to all, particularly refugee children and access for girls & women."
