Special guests Pharrell Williams, Big Sean, Andra Day and Alessia Cara will also perform at the Sept. 23 event. Comcast will air a live simulcast of the full concert on MSNBC and MSNBC.com.
There will also be some crossover with the iHeartRadio Music Festival taking place the same weekend in Paradise, Nevada, including Big Sean, who will take part in both shows on the same day.
Now in its sixth year, the festival is part of a movement that aims to achieve economic justice for all, which involves targeting world leaders to help end extreme poverty.
“To date, the actions by our global community have resulted in over $30 billion in commitments and policy announcements that will affect the lives of (one) billion people by 2030,” their website states.
Fans can earn their free tickets for admission by joining the movement at globalcitizenfestival.com.
