The Global Citizen Festival has just started at Central Park in New York City. Watch the live video stream above.
The Global Citizen organization is "an international education and advocacy organization working to catalyze the movement to end extreme poverty" according to their website.
This year, the performers are Stevie Wonder, Kings of Leon, Alicia Keys, John Mayer, and Elvis Costello. Unfortunately, no official schedule has been released. Between the musical performances, celebrities and humanitarians will speak to the concert audience to raise awareness about the Global Citizen organization.
In it's inaugural festival last year, the performers were Neil Young & Crazy Horse, The Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, Band of Horses, and K'Naan.
