The most powerful voices in the world will gather to drive a united message to the higher-ups that control society: our people are dying and there is more than enough for something to be done about it.

The Motsepe Foundation (shout to you Patrice) linked up with Global Festival to bring this event to our shores.

Global Citizen Festival: When is it?

It is most probably too late to enter for a chance to win two of 70 000 tickets that were up for grabs anyway so we will not go into detail about who you can get one.
