Neil Young, Foo Fighters to perform at NYC's free Global Festival
The music extravaganza, which will also feature Band of Horses and K'Naan, takes place Sept. 29 on the Great Lawn of New York City's Central Park.
The Global Poverty Project is hosting the inaugural Global Festival; the international organization works to end extreme poverty worldwide through education and advocacy.
Those interested in free tickets need to visit the event's website to sign up as a Global Citizen and take action to qualify for the ticket lottery.
"With at least 1.3 billion people living in extreme poverty on Earth today, there has never been a better time to become a Global Citizen and do whatever you can to make a difference for your fellow man," Neil Young said in a press release.
A small number of VIP packages are available now via the festival website, with all net proceeds going to the charity.
