Tomorrow afternoon the Global Citizen Festival will bring top artists and 60,000 rock fans to New York City’s Central Park for the Global Citizen Festival, a massive, free ticketed advocacy concert that will put the movement to end extreme poverty in the headlines.
Information on how to get tickets is available at Global Citizen’s website: you can earn tickets by “learning, sharing and taking action against global poverty.” Three points gets you into a drawing to win a pair of tickets to the festival. There are also limited V.I.P. tickets available that you can purchase.
