The Roc Nation mogul, Jay Z is going to India for the first-ever Global Citizen Festival. He’ll join Coldplay and Demi Lovato at the star-studded concert on Nov. 19 at Mumbai’s MMRDA Grounds-Bandra Kurla Complex.
Coldplay frontman and longtime Jay Z friend ‘Chris Martin’, is the curator of the show, which has been previously held in New York every year since 2012.
Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans said he’s proud of the event’s evolution as it reaches a new territory. “With over half a million young Indians taking over 1.8 million actions in support of our campaigns, earning their free tickets for the inaugural Global Citizen India Festival, it is exhilarating to see that the youth of India won’t wait for change,” Evans said.
“We are thrilled to be launching this 15 year journey to end extreme poverty in India with the support of Coldplay, Jay Z and Demi Lovato and incredible Indian superstars like A.R. Rahman and Farhan Akhtar.”
The show is also set to feature Bollywood stars and Indian musicians including Aamir Khan, Arijit Singh, Amitabh Bachchan, Dia Mirza, Farhan Akhtar, Freida Pinto, and Kareena Kapoor Khan.
