Janet Jackson & Cardi B To Headline Global Citizen Festival 2018

Published: Tuesday 7th Aug 2018 by Sam


Janet Jackson is booked and busy!

The formidable Pop force will bring her blazing brand of fierce to the Global Citizen Festival next month and so will a number of other major names – including Cardi B and The Weeknd. 

Details below…

Set to take place September 29th at New York’s Central Park (Great Lawn), the multi-act special will broadcast live on MSNBC. 

Hosted by Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee Furness, the event will also boast performances from Janelle Monáe and Shawn Mendes.

Presenters include Naomi Campbell, Cynthia Erivo, Danai Gurira, and La La Anthony.

As with all things staged by Global Citizen, this year’s festival sets out to raise awareness about extreme poverty around the world and the organization’s aim to eradicate it altogether.

On this occasion, there will be specific focus on ensuring that world leaders deliver on  their obligation to the broader cause.


Suffice to say, the line-up looks incredible!

It’s great to see Janet really back out there in a major way and cool to have Cardi bouncing back post-birth of baby.

        U just SNATCHED his windpipes!

      • cory August 7, 2018

        Janet Jackson doesn’t need a Vogue cover. I’m sure at any point her in amazing career she could have had one. Magazines are dead. No one buys them anymore.

        What Beyonce needs to worry about is the fact she isn’t even Top 40 of all-time… yet Rihanna is #10… and Janet is #7. Isn’t Beyonce #41 or #42? Even Katy and Taylor are above her.
