Stephen Colbert, Kerry Washington, Hugh Jackman, more to host Global Citizen Festival
Next month’s Global Citizen Festival in New York’s Central Park just got a little more star-studded.
Festival organizers announced Stephen Colbert, Hugh Jackman, Kerry Washington, Salma Hayek, Olivia Wilde, and Deborra-Lee Funess will co-host the event headlined by performers Beyoncé, Pearl Jam, Coldplay, and Ed Sheeran. “I am honored and thrilled to join Global Citizen in urging world leaders to commit to ending extreme poverty,” Colbert said in a statement. “Finally, all that U.N. traffic will have a purpose!”
In its fourth year, the free ticketed concert will air on MSNBC and stream on iHeartRadio and Tidal on September 26.
