Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Anitta and BTS’s Jung Kook will take the stage at the Global Citizen Festival 2023 and the entire event will be broadcast around the world.
The benefit concert, taking place in New York’s Central Park, will be streamed live exactly here to 10 p.m. ET. Highlights will also air Sunday on ABC starting at 7:00 p.m. ET/4:00 p.m. PT.
In return, Global Citizen Festival will provide free tickets to the event if fans take actions for social change on the group’s app and website. Global Citizen supporters are calling on governments to take action to combat extreme poverty and the systemic problems that prevent millions of people from escaping it.
The festival marks the first time that record-breaking K-pop singer Jung Kook will perform live without BTS. His debut solo single, “Seven,” reached No. 1 in the U.S. and around the world this summer.
Other cast members include Conan Gray, D-Nice, Sofia Carson and Stray Kids.
Speakers from Bill Nye the Science Guy to rapper Common to TV host Padma Lakshmi to basketball star Carmelo Anthony and numerous advocates from around the world will also encourage viewers to take further action.
