Global Citizen: 24 hours to change the world

Can you imagine an international gig in which the greatest artists in the world perform simultaneously on every continent? On September 25, from New York to London, through Paris and Rio de Janeiro, Global Citizen brings together more than seventy artists acting in defense of the planet. Festileaks goes to the foot of the Eiffel Tower to attend the French live which gathers an exceptional program.

The best line-ups for the most important causes

All around the world, the most popular artists of the moment are getting together to defend the planet, under the banner of the NGO Global Citizen. In London, Nile Rodgers and Kylie Minogue will get the crowds dancing. Overseas, Coldplay, Billie Eilish and Camila Cabello will take care of the audience in New York. In the American Big Apple, two other exceptional guests are expected. Prince Harry and Meghan will be there to call for equal access to the vaccine against COVID-19. In addition, The Fugees will reunite after a 15-year absence. They will play their first show for the occasion in New York. What a great line-up! 

Under the guise of Live Aid, major simultaneous event in London and New York, Global Citizen intervenes to defend two causes: the end of hunger in the world and the protection of the planet. 

Amazing acts in Paris

In Paris, it is at the Champ de Mars that we have an appointment to applause Ed Sheeran, Doja Cat, The Black Eyed Peas, Måneskin and Christine and the Queens. But that is not all. While he had to postpone his farewell tour due to health concerns, Elton John maintains his participation and will be there to delight his Parisian fans. The shows will indeed be available on YouTube, live. Enjoy the exceptional view of Paris, under an Eiffel Tower illuminated especially for the occasion.

Paris and festivals, a love story of solidarity

It’s not surprising to find Paris in the list of cities chosen to host the Global Citizen Event. Between Lagos, New York, Rio de Janeiro, Los Angeles, London and Mumbai, the French capital fits perfectly. Paris is already a symbol recognized throughout the world. The city also will host the 2024 Olympic Games!

Indeed, the city of lights also hosts two other festivals, every year, which defend the values of solidarity. Solidays is a festival that donates its profits to the fight against AIDS. A little further, We Love Green defends ecological values and tries to improve the world in its own way.
