With the pandemic repercussions easing down, the Global Citizen Festival 2021 is finally here with countless artists, activists, and advocacy organizations coming together to raise awareness and spark global change. The festival is considered "Global Citizen Live," a 24-hour music festival spanning six continents and featuring hundreds of artists and celebrities giving amazing performances. This year, the event is a part of Global Citizens’ so-called "Recovery Plan for the World," a much-talked campaign that focuses widely on coronavirus pandemic, ending the hunger crisis, and a lot more.
With the festival to kick start on a grand note, an array of prominent stars are lined up to give spectacular performances that would mesmerize the spectators. From New York City, performers like Coldplay, Billie Eilish, Camila Cabello, Jennifer Lopez, Lizzo, Meek Mill, and Shawn Mendes are expected to perform for the event. Apart from this, special guests like Cyndi Lauper, Jon Batiste, Alessia Cara, Burna Boy, and Lang Lang are also expected to grace the event with their presence. Amber Ruffin, Andy Cohen, Billy Porter, Bonang Matheba, Bridget Moynahan, Connie Britton, and more will also give appearances at the event.
From LA, viewers and fans can expect performances by Stevie Wonder, Adam Lambert, Chloe x Halle, Demi Lovato, H.E.R., Migos, ONEREPUBLIC, Ozuna, The Lumineers, and 5 Seconds of Summer; and appearances by JoJo, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, Maggie Q, and Scott Evans, presented by Verizon.
