Beyonce, Jay-Z, Ed Sheeran to Headline Global Citizen Festival

If you happen to find yourself in Johannesburg, South Africa this December then you're there at the right time since there will be a free festival with a stacked line-up. Ticket-acquiring methods will be detailed further August 21.

THE Global Citizen Festival has confirmed that world renowned musician Beyonce Carter-Knowles will be among the artists performing at their Mandela 100 concert this year.

Beyonce, Jay-Z and Ed Sheeran will headline a special Global Citizen Festival in honor of Nelson Mandela in South Africa on December 2. Madiba was a man whose values and wisdom have left a lasting imprint on this world. The Global Citizen organisation is a movement of engaged citizens who are using their collective voice to end extreme poverty by 2030.

Global Citizen has generated commitments and policy announcements from leaders valued at more than $37.9 billion that are set to affect the lives of more than 2.25 billion people. "Nelson Mandela deserves something special to mark his centenary", Campbell tells Vogue.

One of the performers from South Africa, Madjozi, said: "Without the sacrifices of great South Africans like Nelson Mandela, I wouldn't be able to live the life I lead today".
