It will be the first time that the Jelly Roll and Post Malone have taken to the poverty fighting festival. But for Doja Cat, this will be her second time taking to the Global Citizen stage, after she performed at the 2021 festival in Paris.

"I’m excited to join forces with Global Citizen once again in Central Park this September to drive as much action as we can to make the world a better place,” she said. "We all have a part we can play to help end extreme poverty and stand up for equity. I'm looking forward to being part of this major evening of positive change."

Since its 2012 debut, the festival has attracted impressive headline acts year-on-year. Stevie Wonder took to the stage in 2013, while JAY-Z was joined by Beyoncé for two duets in 2014 - who would headline the year after.

The Global Citizen Festival is organized by Global Poverty Project with three aims: defeat poverty, defend the planet, and demand equity. Unlike many other festivals, tickets are free and can be earned by taking action on the Global Citizen app or website to demand change from governments and private sector leaders.
