Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Selena Gomez, Major Lazer and Metallica will headline the 2016 Global Citizen Fest which happens in NYC's Central Park on September 24. As in year's past, tickets need to be "earned" by volunteering to take action:
You can choose from a range of actions that earn you points. Once you earn enough points, you can enter the draw for festival tickets. Every two weeks we will launch a new campaign with a different challenge for Global Citizens—and a chance to win. Redeeming previous points will not qualify you to enter the draw.
In addition to five main acts listed above the 2016 Global Citizen Fest will feature "special appearances" by Chris Martin, Eddie Vedder, Usher, Ellie Goulding, Yandel, and Yusuf/Cat Stevens, and the day will be hosted by Chelsea Handler, Deborra-Lee & Hugh Jackman, Neil Patrick Harris, Priyanka Chopra, Salma Hayek Pinault, and Seth Meyers.
