2018 Global Citizen Festival: Janelle Monae, a ‘popping bottle’ and other memorable moments

Nearly 60,000 people gathered in Central Park’s Great Lawn on Saturday for the seventh annual Global Citizen Festival, featuring performances from Janelle Monae, John Legend, Shawn Mendes, Cardi B, Janet Jackson and The Weeknd.

The day-long event, hosted by husband and wife Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee Furness, encouraged attendees to become active in social issues, including reducing the amount of single-use plastic, eliminating bail bond policies that unfairly target minorities and the poor and providing every child with access to quality education.

If you couldn’t make it to New York or didn’t get a chance to stream it online, here are the top moments from the 2018 Global Citizen Festival.
