Queen + Adam Lambert to Headline Global Citizen Festival 2019

Queen + Adam Lambert have been named the headliner of the 2019 Global Citizen Festival, taking place on September 28 in New York City’s Central Park. The festival is happening at the end of the United Nations General Assembly week in New York City and is designed to call on world leaders to make real, impactful commitments toward achieving the UN’s Global Goals for Sustainable Development. Other Artists at the festival includes Pharrell Williams, Alicia Keys, OneRepublic, HER, Carole King, French Montana, Ben Platt, Jon Batiste & Stay Human, Debora-Lee Furness, and Hugh Jackman. An estimated 60,000 Global Citizens in attendance — and millions more watching the broadcast and livestreams on Twitter and YouTube — will join the artist lineup to put pressure on governments, businesses, and philanthropists to uphold their responsibilities toward empowering women and girls around the world, combating plastic pollution to protect the poorest parts of the planet, improving the quality of health care and nutrition, and unlocking human potential through quality education, skills, and health. The commitments made this year will help to set the agenda for the final 10-year push to achieve the Global Goals by 2030.Continue reading
