Beyonce and Jay-Z will be performing in South Africa

The festival will be taking place at FNB Stadium on 2 December as part of Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday celebrations. The Global Citizen is a movement of engaged citizens who are using their collective voice to end extreme poverty by 2030. This year’s festival will celebrate the centenary year of former president Nelson Mandela, honouring his legacy in the fight to end “extreme poverty”.

Other stars on the line-up include Pharrel Williams, Chris Martin, Ed Sheeren, Usher, D’banj, Femi Kuti, Wizkid, Tiwa Savaga, Sho Madjozi and Cassper Nyovest who tweeted the poster.

The concert was announced during a press conference on Monday 9 July with a panel that included Naomi Campbell and Patrice Motsepe. Australian humanitarian Hugh Evans said that the entrance to the concert will be free but the catch is that you have to play your part in giving back to society for six months.

 

The concert is presented by the Motsepe Foundation.
