New York City’s Global Citizen Festival to feature Jay Z as headliner


Organizers for the Global Citizen Festival recently announced it’s star-studded lineup for the upcoming 2014 show.

Carrie Underwood, The Roots, No Doubt, Fun., and Tiesto will all take part in the festival and superstar Brooklyn emcee, Jay Z, will serve as the headlining act.

Scheduled to take place in New York’s Central Park on September 27, the event is free to all, but there’s a catch. Tickets must be earned by doing acts that support the effort to put an end to extreme poverty around the world. Those interested in VIP tickets can however purchase them through traditional outlets such as Ticketmaster.

The Global Citizen Festival is designed to coincide with the United Nations General Assembly meeting and put pressure on world leaders to address the needs of the world’s poor.

For those not in the New York City area, the festival will be broadcast live on NBC and MSNBC.
