Green Day, The Killers Set For Global Citizen Festival In September

(TRR) The 2017 installment of Global Citizen Festival is set for September 23 at Central Park in New York City. This year, Green Day and The Killers are set to make appearances along with Stevie Wonder, The Lumineers, The Chainsmokers, Pharrell Williams, Big Sean, Andra Day, and Alessia Cara. More special guests are scheduled to be announced in the coming weeks.

The festival is produced by Live Nation and presented by several partners including Gucci, Citi, T-Mobile, Chime For Change, Johnson & Johnson, iHeart Radio, MSNBC, and more.

“We’re grateful to be a part of this year’s Global Citizen Festival,” says Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong. “American aid programs make a significant difference in the betterment of lives at home and around the world, and we should all want these programs to become stronger, not weaker. We all play a part in seeing this mission through and it starts with calling on all our leaders.”

Global Citizen is now in its sixth year. Last September, heavy metal legends Metallica performed along with Pearl Jam vocalist Eddie Vedder and others. The organization is looking to “end poverty, tackle climate change, and fight inequalities.”
