Thousands attend Global Citizen Festival in Central Park

Musicians and activists gathered to encourage people to join them in working to eradicate extreme poverty and tackle climate change.

More than 60,000 people packed Central Park on Saturday for the Global Citizen Festival, an annual event that mixes musical performances with activism aimed at ending poverty throughout the world by 2030.

Artists such as Queen, Adam Lambert, Alicia Keys, Pharell Williams and OneRepublic took the stage during the five-hour festival, which comes on the heels of the Global Climate Strike led by teen activist Greta Thunberg and the U.N. Climate Summit at the United Nations in New York.
