Beyoncé and Jay-Z will perform in South Africa later this year.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z will perform at Global Citizen Festival which will take place on 02 December 2018 at the FNB Stadium. They will be joined by Pharrell Williams, Usher, Ed Sheeran, Femi Kuti and Wizkid.
Global Citizen Festival Mandela 100 hosts include Naomi Campbell, Bonang Matheba, Sir Bob Geldof, Gayle King, Tyler Perry, and Forest Whitaker.
Responding to Nelson Mandela’s call for us to be the generation to end extreme poverty, artists and leaders will be joined by 100,000 Global Citizens who’ve taken action on the Global Citizen social advocacy platform to earn their free tickets to the festival.
Tickets for the festival are free, but fans will have to sign-up to earn their entry from 21 August via www.globalcitizen.org.za.
Global Citizens who earn their free tickets will see a music performance of a lifetime, as artists from around the world gather on our stage alongside world and corporate leaders, activists and advocates.
The Mandela 100 Festival, in partnership with the House of Mandela, will serve as the capstone event of Global Citizen’s year-long Be the Generation campaign, inspired by the revered former leader of South Africa and his lifelong dedication to rallying people together to use their collective voices to speak for the most marginalized people.
A number of world leaders are expected to also attend, including South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations Amina J. Mohammed, who delivered the 2017 Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture, Norway’s Prime Minister Erna Solberg and Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo, who both serve as co-chairs of the UN Secretary General’s Advocacy Group for the Sustainable Development Goals, Director-General of the World Health Organization Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, President of the UN International Fund for Agricultural Development Gilbert F. Houngbo, Deputy Prime Minister of Belgium Alexander De Croo, Ambassador Ertharin Cousin, Chair of Power of Nutrition, and Peter Sands, Executive Director of the The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
