The 2022 Global Citizen Festival celebrates its 10th anniversary with a massive lineup of famous artists performing in two separate locations.
The annual festival will make a comeback this year in two global locations – New York City’s Central Park and Black Star Square in Accra, Ghana.
Here’s how to get tickets for the festival and all the information you need about the event.
How to get Global Citizen Festival 2022 tickets
Global Citizen Festival tickets are free and there are several ways to get passes for the event. Those who want to attend will need to create an account on the Global Citizen app or its official website.
Once the profile is live, fans will need to earn points by signing petitions, voicing their support on social media and writing letters to politicians in order to win a ticket for the event.
You will need to earn 60 points in order to be entered in one of four drawings for tickets. The drawings take place on these dates:
- Aug 11 – Aug 22
- Aug 23 – Sep 5
- Sep 6 – Sep 12
- Sep 13 – Sep 19
Global Citizen Festival organisers will randomly select winners from each drawing and will send each winner two tickets. From there, each winner has 48 hours to confirm their attendance.
Bare in mind that the New York City concert is only available to those based in the US.
More information about the event
In a press release, Global Citizen Festival has explained the next steps once winners are contacted.
“After you claim your tickets, you will be given a unique code to receive the tickets from Ticketmaster,” the media release explains. “If you are having trouble with the code on the Ticketmaster site, please fill out our contact form ASAP so we can assist you.
“If you claim your tickets on time, you will get another email on Wednesday, Sept. 21 (72 hours before the show), explaining how to download your tickets from Ticketmaster and a reminder to print them and bring them with you to the festival.
“If you don’t earn tickets in the first round, you can re-enter in the second round for another chance, as well as the third round and the final round.”
A total of 21,500 people will be selected in the drawings who will get two tickets each, meaning that 43,000 free tickets will be available this year.

Metallica, Charlie Puth, Jonas Brothers, MÅNESKIN, Mariah Carey, Mickey Guyton, and Rosalía will be performing at New York City’s Central Park on September 24th, 2022. Priyanka Chopra Jonas has been confirmed as the host of the event.
