Rather than putting tickets on sale, the festival asks fans to earn tickets through advocacy and social justice work, as reported in Pitchfork.

Global Citizen is seeking to raise $1 billion in new commitments for causes such as “ending hunger and increasing access to good nutrition, ending neglected tropical diseases, reducing HIV transmission rates, ensuring every child receives a quality education, reforming and repealing sexist laws, providing funding for women’s health and family planning, and ensuring access to clean water and safe sanitation world wide.”

The live stream of the concert hosted by Trevor Noah can be found below:
