Music festival in Central Park with Neil Young, Foo Fighters & The Black Keys, tickets earned through Global Citizen.
2012 Global Citizen Festival
The Global Citizen Festival is an action rewarded, awareness driven music festival where fans engage with causes to get a ticket. Taking place on the Great Lawn of Central Park, last year 60,000 fans came out to see Neil Young, Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, John Legend, Band of Horses & K’Naan. We developed the festival in partnership with the Global Poverty Project and Goldenvoice/AEG. RIOT: Co-Founder and Executive Producer
