Jay Z and The Roots are set to perform at the Global Citizen Festival in September.
This year's Global Citizen Festival has announced a pretty strong line-up, consisting of headliners Jay Z and The Roots, as well as Tiesto and No Doubt, there seems to be a little something for everybody.
The Global Citizen Festival is in support of the Global Poverty Project, a charity aimed to rid the world of extreme poverty by 2030. This year's festival goes down in New York's Central Park on September 27th.
Hov spoke on the goals of the Global Poverty Project in a new press release. "Change only takes place when and where there is action," the rapper said. "I’m joining the 2014 Global Citizen Festival because I believe through actions, whether it be by raising awareness, getting involved or educating ourselves, the goal to end extreme poverty by 2030 is possible."
The event will reportedly coincide with the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
