The Global Citizen Festival India will leverage the voices of Global Citizens to influence world leaders and decision makers to enact policy changes and commit significant resources to help solve some of the world’s biggest challenges. The inaugural Festival will be held in Mumbai on 19 November 2016, and will be headlined by Coldplay, Jay Z, Aamir Khan, A.R. Rahman, Ranveer Singh, Katrina Kaif, Farhan Akhtar, Shraddha Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Arijit Singh, Dia Mirza, Shankar Ehsaan Loy, and Monali Thakur. Several major artists and international guests will be announced at different stages of the campaign.
Farhan Akhtar said that taking collective action was vital to achieve the Global Goals and end extreme poverty: "Global Citizen India is doing something unique. It is offering us a platform wherein our individual efforts and voices can combine together to push for collective action. Offering the Global Goals as a roadmap not only encourages collective action within a country, but also across the world, and it is this collective, merged action that can truly make a difference."
Eighty percent of the tickets to the festival will be given out to Global Citizens who earn them by taking action.
