Global Citizen Festival 2022 Lineups in NYC and Accra, Ghana

Today, the international advocacy organization Global Citizen announced the lineup for the 10th anniversary Global Citizen Festival, taking place in New York City and Accra, Ghana on September 24, 2022.

In Central Park, New York City, the line-up includes Metallica, Charlie Puth, Jonas Brothers, Måneskin, Mariah Carey, Mickey Guyton, and Rosalía, with more to be announced. Global Citizen Festival: NYC will be hosted by actor, producer, author, and Global Citizen Ambassador Priyanka Chopra Jonas.

In Black Star Square, Accra, Ghana, the line-up includes Usher, SZA, Stormzy, Gyaki, H.E.R., Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, and Tems, with more to be announced.

These artists will join Global Citizen to call on world leaders, major corporations, and foundations to:

  • Empower women and girls and invest $600 million into girls’ education, sexual and reproductive health, and economic empowerment.
  • Take climate action to close the annual $10 billion climate financing shortfall.
  • Alleviate the global food crisis and provide $500 million to help African farmers respond to the global food crisis.
  • Deploy financing to provide urgent relief from crushing debts.

Since it began lighting up Central Park’s Great Lawn in 2012, the Global Citizen Festival has become the world’s longest-running global campaign calling for an end to the extreme poverty that unites millions of voices, amplified by the world’s biggest artists, demanding world leaders take action now.
