The Global Citizen Festival is back at Central Park today for another free concert, with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Ms. Lauryn Hill set as the day’s headliners. Megan Thee Stallion, Anitta and Jungkook of BTS are also on the day’s bill.
The event kicks off at 4 p.m. ET but if you can’t enjoy the music in person, you can live stream the entire day’s worth of performances on Prime Video. If you aren’t a Prime member, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial in order to stream the Global Citizen Festival entirely for free.
The concert and its surrounding initiatives are timed to impact a September gathering in New York of world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly.
Global Citizen’s annual massive event in Central Park follows on the heels of a similarly large-scale, globally webcast concert in France, named “Power Our Planet: Live in Paris,” that featured Billie Eilish, Jon Batiste, H.E.R., Lenny Kravitz, Finneas and Ben Harper performing in front of the Eiffel Tower. That show was held to coincide with — and put pressure for change on — the Summit for a New Financial Pact, another meeting of world leaders.
Areas Global Citizen is focusing on as part of this event include the global food and malnutrition crisis; the unequal access to education, healthcare and family planning facing women and adolescent girls around the world; climate change and the need to financially support less developed nations in dealing with their own climate issues.
