Returning for a fourth year with another big bash in Central Park, Global Citizen allows you to earn your way in to catch a starry bill—Beyonce, Coldplay, Pearl Jam, Ed Sheeran—by performing civic-minded acts, with a goal of eliminating extreme poverty around the globe by 2030.

This posting says it's for the 2015 Global Citizen Festival, but you should try to get tickets to this festival regardless of the year.  Not only are the actions you complete to get tickets good for the world, but everything sold on site gives a portion of proceeds to charity.  The musical acts are always great and a good mix of styles (an EDM concert series this is not), and the surprise guests (like Ellie Goulding in 2016) are incredibly exciting.  It's an all day commitment, but it's absolutely worth attending if you love giving back and if you love music.


What time do shows at Great Lawn end usually? I have tickets but also a gig that night. Dont want to miss Stevie. Any info is appreciated! Thanks.


Awesome free event in Central Park. Stevie Wonder, Kings of Leon, Alicia Keys and John Mayer playing to help end extreme poverty? Are you kidding me? Can't wait to go!
