The Global Citizen Festival is an annual music festival established in 2012. Chris Martin, lead singer of Coldplay, is the current creative director of the event, and he will fulfill this role for the next 15 years.
The festival is organised by Global Poverty Project, and is part of a continued movement to end extreme poverty by 2030. By contributing to charity acts on the website, including watching videos and signing petitions, fans can get free tickets to the festival.
In addition, the organizers are striving to make the event “global” by live-streaming events in public locations.
Since 2015, the goals of the festival have been closely aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, a “set of seventeen aspirational “Global Goals” to accomplish by the year 2030.
