The festival, described by organizers as a “once-in-a-generation day of unity,” will also be broadcast from Paris, France; Lagos, Nigeria; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Sydney, Australia; and its spiritual home, New York City.

Stevie Wonder will headline the L.A. festival at The Greek Theatre, with a West Coast roster that includes Adam Lambert, Chloe x Halle, Demi Lovato, H.E.R., ONEREPUBLIC, Ozuna, The Lumineers, and 5 Seconds of Summer.

Duran Duran headlines the London program, which also includes Kylie Minogue, Mneskin, Nile Rodgers and Chic, and Rag’n’Bone Man.

The 24-hour rally is part of Global Citizens’ “Recovery Plan for the World,” a campaign centered on COVID-19, addressing the food crisis, restarting learning for all, preserving the environment, and increasing equity.

The performers will attempt to mobilize individuals all around the world to demand that governments, large businesses, and philanthropists join together to preserve the Earth and eliminate poverty; support the campaign, win tickets, and take action.
