Global Citizen Live 2021

After a year of silence (#ThanksCorona) the annual Global Citizen Live Festival makes a return for the 9th time this weekend. The 24-hour Global Citizen Live series of concerts on Sept. 25 will feature a star-studded line-up of acts performing in COVID-safe shows spanning six continents.

The initial roster for the main New York event will feature Coldplay, Billie Eilish, Camila Cabello, Jennifer Lopez, Lizzo, Meek Mill, Shawn Mendes, Alessia Cara, Burna Boy, Cyndi Lauper, Jon Batiste and Lang Lang.

Femi Kuti, Davido, Tiwa Savage and Made Kuti will perform in Lagos, Nigeria and Ed Sheeran, Doja Cat, DJ Snake, H.E.R., Black Eyed Peas, Christine and the Queens and Angélique Kidjo play in Paris.

With additional shows in Rio de Janeiro, London, Seoul, Los Angeles and Sydney, the concerts are slated to raise awareness about issues including climate change, famine and vaccine equity and coincide with the United Nations General Assembly currently underway in New York City.
