Pearl Jam, Beyoncé and Coldplay headline Global Citizen Festival

Hank Shteamer

Chris Martin took to YouTube today to announce some pretty big news. His sensitive-rock megaband, Coldplay, will co-headline this year's Global Citizen Festival in Central Park, sharing the bill with some pretty enormous names: Seattle grunge titans Pearl Jam, British folk-pop chart-topper Ed Sheeran and, yes, Queen B herself, Beyoncé. The fun goes down on Saturday, September 26, and as always tickets are free—with a catch. Those looking to attend will need to do their part in advancing Global Citizen's admirable core mission of ending extreme poverty worldwide. The rules for the ticket giveaways are a little complex, so we recommend browsing the Global Citizen website to get a feel for the process. Good luck!
