Jigga will join Coldplay and Demi Lovato for the first-ever Global Citizen Festival in India.
Jay Z is set to headline the first-ever Global Citizen Festival in India on Nov. 19 at the Mumbai’s MMRDA Grounds-Bandra Kurla Complex. Coldplay and Demi Lovato are also part of the line-up. Since 2012, the festival has taken place in New York City and Coldplay’s frontman Chris Martin is the creative director.
In a statement, the CEO of Global Citizen, Hugh Evans said he’s well-pleased about the event growing to a new country. “With over half a million young Indians taking over 1.8 million actions in support of our campaigns, earning their free tickets for the inaugural Global Citizen India Festival, it is exhilarating to see that the youth of India won’t wait for change,” Evans said. “We are thrilled to be launching this 15-year journey to end extreme poverty in India with the support of Coldplay, Jay Z and Demi Lovato and incredible Indian superstars like A.R. Rahman and Farhan Akhtar.”
Staying true to the culture in India, the festival will also feature Bollywood stars and Indian musicians such as Aamir Khan, Arijit Singh, Amitabh Bachchan, Dia Mirza, Farhan Akhtar, Freida Pinto, and Kareena Kapoor Khan.
The festival will be the first time Hov and Coldplay have performed in India.
