The Global Citizen Festival's 2019 edition hasn't even happened yet, and the organization is already looking toward the future. After launching a yearlong initiative called Global Goal Live: The Possible Dream, the festival is preparing to host a 10-hour-long concert between five continents in 2020.
“Our goal, to put it simply, is to engage every single person on the planet in this mission [to end global poverty],” Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans said in a statement. “To do so we must boldly and creatively reach global citizens where they are: in person, on television, on their phones and online.”
The campaign will materialize on September 26, 2020 and is set to feature a lineup consisting of Alicia Keys, Billie Eilish, Coldplay, Cyndi Lauper, Eddie Vedder, H.E.R., Janelle Monáe, Lizzo, Metallica, Miley Cyrus, Muse, Ozuna, Ozzy Osbourne, Pharrell Williams, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Shawn Mendes, Usher, Deborra-Lee Furness, Hugh Jackman, Idris Elba, Jill Vedder, Katie Holmes, Rachel Brosnahan, Trevor Noah and Uzo Aduba performing on stages in North America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
