LUMINARY HOSTs for Global Citizen festival
 in central park announced

Celebrities and Philanthropists To Join Forces At Free Ticketed Festival To End Extreme Poverty  on Sept. 29 with Neil Young with Crazy Horse, Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, Band of Horses and K’Naan


The Global Poverty Project has announced the official host committee for the Global Citizen Festival 2012. The all-star roster represents the collective effort that The Global Poverty Project has initiated, asking people to take actions to eradicate extreme poverty. The free ticketed concert will take place on September 29, on the Great Lawn of New York's iconic Central Park. Neil Young with Crazy Horse, Foo Fighters and The Black Keys will headline, supported by Band of Horses and K’Naan.  

The Global Citizen Festival, in partnership with ten nonprofit organizations, has been timed to celebrate achievements and create awareness around the UN General Assembly in New York, when world leaders will convene to debate the Millennium Development Goals and make commitments to end extreme poverty.

The confirmed host committee includes: Hugh Jackman, Jeffrey Sachs, Jack Dorsey, Katie Couric, Selena Gomez for U.S. Fund for UNICEF, Minka Kelly for The World Food Program USA, Sophia Bush for Pencils of Promise, Olivia Wilde for Half the Sky Movement, Katharine McPhee for Malaria No More, and Erin Heatherton.

The incredible supporters, some on behalf of nonprofit partners, will dedicate their time and passion to encourage their fans and friends to raise awareness about the issue and take action in the end of poverty.

Katharine McPhee stated, “I am thrilled to be participating in this incredible event, it’s a rare opportunity to have thousands of people taking action together to fight global poverty.  I saw first-hand in Africa this year how we are making progress!"

Tickets to the concert can be earned through the new online platform, Global Citizen ( Global Citizen offers a wide cross-section of content and actions about international health and development issues, ranging from videos to in-depth white papers. It also showcases nonprofit partners and social entrepreneurs that are working in each of these areas, as well as academics, writers, the host committee and music artists who are involved in these particular issues. Each fan can simply choose from a variety of cause-related actions to complete on the website, become a global citizen and qualify for free tickets to the concert.

The Festival is being produced by Goldenvoice and is generously supported by a range of Foundations, private donors and businesses.  The Pratt Foundation, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and Capital for Good, have provided generous support for Global Citizen and the Global Citizen Festival.  The event is only possible because of the critical funding from the Sumner Redstone Foundation that allowed the Festival to move forward.  Art and other creative elements of the festival will be produced by Milk Studios and the HOPE Campaign.

People everywhere are invited to sign-up and begin participating in actions to be entered in the ticket lottery.   More information about the bands, artists, schedules, and event can be found here:   A small number of VIP tickets are available for purchase and all net proceeds go to the charity. 


The Global Poverty Project is an international education and advocacy organization working to catalyse the movement to end extreme poverty. An Australian grown project, The Global Poverty Project creates campaigns with the purpose to increase the number and effectiveness of people taking action to end extreme poverty, with the vision of a world without extreme poverty, within a generation.
