Janet Jackson, The Weeknd, Cardi B, and Janelle Monae will be headline this year’s Global Citizen Fest in Central Park’s Great Lawn on Saturday, September 29.

Each year, advocacy organization Global Citizen organizes the one-night concert event to raise awareness for various political and social issues. This year’s focus remains on maintaining the $60 billion foreign affairs budget that backs food assistance programs across the globe, as well as raising funds for mothers and children who die from preventable pregnancy-related diseases.

Since entry is free, Global Citizen Festival relies on fan participation to drum up the political conversation: ticket seekers are asked to “earn” their way in by calling local officials and tweeting about causes through the GCF app.

Celebrity co-hosts include La La Anthony, Camren Bicondova, Rachel Brosnahan, Naomi Campbell, Cynthia Erivo, Danai Gurira, Gus Kenworthy, Kal Penn and Forest Whitaker.
