global goal live

The line-up for the concert will make your jaws drop.

Dubai has been announced as one of the 10 cities to host for the Global Goal Live: the possible Dream event, which will be one of the largest broadcast events in history.

The event is a 10-hour, six-continent telecast on Saturday, September 26, organized by international advocacy organization Global Citizen, and will call on governments, philanthropists and the private sector to provide the $350 billion (Dh1.28 trillion) needed annually to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. These goals include ending extreme poverty, reducing income equality and tackling climate change.

In essence, the Global Goal Live event will be a “Live Aid” style musical affair, with 10 hours worth of performances from the world's most famous musicians. There will also be policymakers and big-name speakers.

Acts that have already been confirmed as part of the event include Alicia Keys, Billie Eilish, Coldplay, Cyndi Lauper, D'banj, Eddie Vedder, EXO, Her, Janelle Monae, Lizzo, Metallica, Miley Cyrus, Muse, Ozuna, Ozzy Osbourne, Pharrell Williams, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Shawn Mendes, Tiwa Savage and Usher.

Although the lineup for Dubai has still not been announced.
