Beyoncé, JAY-Z, Ed Sheeran, Tiwa Savage, Cassper Nyovest and more performed at Global Citizen Festival Mandela 100 on the 2nd of December 2018 at the FNB Stadium.
Responding to Nelson Mandela’s call for us to be the generation to end extreme poverty, artists and leaders were joined by 100,000 Global Citizens who’ve taken action on the Global Citizen social advocacy platform to earn their free tickets to the festival at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.
The Mandela 100 Festival, in partnership with the House of Mandela, served as the capstone event of Global Citizen’s year-long Be the Generation campaign, inspired by the revered former leader of South Africa and his lifelong dedication to rallying people together to use their collective voices to speak for the most marginalized people.
Global Citizen Festival Mandela 100 hosts included Naomi Campbell, Bonang Matheba, Sir Bob Geldof, Gayle King, Tyler Perry, and Forest Whitaker.
On 2 December at FNB Stadium, Global Citizens who earned their free tickets saw a music performance of a lifetime, as artists from around the world gathered on our stage alongside world and corporate leaders, activists and advocates.
