The 2022 Global Citizens Festival celebrates its 10th anniversary with a massive lineup of renowned artists performing in two different venues.
The annual festival will return this year to two global venues – Central Park in New York City and Black Star Square in Accra, Ghana.
Here’s how to get tickets to the festival and all the information you need about the event.
How to get Global Citizen Festival 2022 Tickets
Tickets for the Global Citizen Festival are free and there are several ways to get a pass for the event. Those who wish to participate will need to create an account on the Global Citizen app or on its official website.
Once the profile goes live, fans will need to earn points to win tickets to the event by signing petitions, expressing their support on social media and writing letters to politicians.
You must earn 60 points to enter one of the four drawings for the ticket. The pictures take place on these dates:
- August 11 – August 22
- August 23 – September 5
- September 6 – September 12
- September 13 – September 19
Organizers of the Global Citizen Festival will randomly select winners from each drawing and send two tickets to each winner. From there, each winner has 48 hours to confirm their attendance.
Bear in mind that the New York City concert is only available to those located in the US.
More information about the event
In a press release, Global Citizen Festival has explained the next steps after the winners have been contacted.
“After you have claimed your tickets, you will be given a unique code to receive tickets from Ticketmaster,” the media release said. “If you’re having problems with the code on the Ticketmaster site, please fill out our contact form ASAP so we can assist you.
“If you claim your tickets on time, you will receive another email on Wednesday, September 21 (72 hours before the show), explaining how to download your tickets from Ticketmaster and a reminder to print them. And bring with you to the festival.
“If you do not earn a ticket in the first round, you may re-enter the second round, as well as the third round and the final round.”
A total of 21,500 people will be selected in the drawing, who will get two tickets each, i.e. 43,000 free tickets this year.
