Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Selena Gomez, Major Lazer, and Metallica are set to headline the annual Global Citizen Festival in New York City. The September 24 event will also see performances from Coldplay, Usher, Ellie Goulding, and more. Chris Martin of Coldplay recently signed on to be the festival’s curator for the next 15 years. Seth Myers, Chelsea Handler, Hugh Jackman, Selma Hayek, and Neil Patrick Harris will host the event.

Partnering with Chime for Change, Gucci's campaign designated to raise funds for female empowerment, Global Citizen Festival is an “action-rewarded, awareness driven free music festival where fans engage with causes in order to win tickets.” Users are asked to leverage their social followings to bring attention to a breadth of social causes. Varying prompts are rewarded with points. 30 points are required to enter the next drawing, which is in 14 days and will see 3500 winners selected.

A limited amount of VIP tickets will be available through the Global Citizen Ticketmaster portal here.
