Global Citizen Launches 15-Year Campaign to Mobilize Social Change in India


Sept. 9, 2016


On Monday we’re so excited to be announcing that on World Toilet Day — November 19th — we’re hosting the first-ever Global Citizen Festival in India, with an incredible lineup of international and Indian headliners including … Coldplay!

Just like our annual festival in Central Park, tickets to the Indian Festival will be FREE. Fans will earn them through taking actions in support of education, equality, and sanitation campaigns.

Starting Monday, tickets to the Global Citizen Festival in India can be earned through the new platform by signing up to become a Global Citizen and completing the festival’s action campaigns at GlobalCitizen.IN

In its first year, Global Citizen India will offer a wide cross-section of content and actions focused on creating meaningful impacts in the areas of education, equality, and clean water and sanitation. Check back on Monday and follow @GlblctznIN for more information.

Thank you so much for posting this, @Coeurli :)

Well, it looks like the full AHFOD tour might not be stopping in India, unless there are more tour dates to be announced, but it's awesome that Coldplay are helping spread the Global Citizen message to India.

it's funny because on FB earlier i saw people sharing articles talking about how ticket prices for their show would be outrageous and obviously none of those people actually knew what they were talking about :p

Actually a lot of media and people in India were making quite a circus out of some tabloid said ticket prices. Smh.. probably why they made this small announcement on a Friday before the planned official announcement next monday.

Yeah and they're even replying to some people on Twitter that were complaining about ticket prices. They're like "Tickets are FREE, actually" :lol:

It feels like they're planning an Asian tour in 2017 rather than late 2016 afterall, so maybe there's a chance they'll stop by India then?

LOL I was looking at those messages and rolling my eyes. They were reporting the average ticket prices being close to 5000 dollars. Stupid tabloids being stupid :no:
I may have given a piece of my mind to a few people on Twitter :uhoh: :p
Good thing I knew what Global Citizen was :D and that our boys would never charge something like that especially in a country like India :lol:

So freaking excited for this DDD:
I'm already a Global Citizen and I've taken all the actions on the app. Is that generally how you win tickets? :3
I don't want to wait till Monday :bigcry:
It's 4 am here and I'm literally on the floor crying, with Moving to Mars playing at full volume :bigcry:

Omg I was reading those articles and tweets about people complaining too...they should get their facts straight before they start hatin! lol
I'm pretty sure that's how you win tickets. Were the actions you took for the GCF in NYC? If so, there might be separate actions you still have to do for India (which is what they may announce Monday?), as I'm not sure if the actions you've taken already will apply to India. But I'm not 100% certain on that.
I wish you all the luck in the world on winning tickets! :)

Ikr :angry:
It was so annoying having to listen to people harp on about those silly articles :no:

Yeah I thought so too. I'll have to go back and look at the app :lol: I never checked because I always assumed it was just for NYC and I just really liked doing the actions themselves xD
Andddd it is just for the festival at Central Park. Yeah I think they'll have some other actions for this concert :nod:
But I want to start doing them NOW :bigcry:

Aww thanks a lot love :nice::heart:

Best of luck to you on Monday :) I really hope you win tickets!!! :D
Thank youuuuuu :D :heart:


I seriously don't know what to do with myself right now D;
This - - - > :omgomg: is an exact representation of my face as I refresh the Global Citizen twitter page every 5 seconds. Can we please just skip Saturday and Sunday this week please? D: Who even needs the weekend pshhh

Alright, this is bloody exciting. Coldplay is coming to India at last, and they're playing in the same city I am living in, so this is absolutely incredible! I've been waiting 11 years for this, and although it isn't going to be a full 20 song set, I'm really looking forward to it!
The only thing that worries me is that there is a lucky draw involved in this, even after earning the required points. But maybe if I earn a few extra points, by referring more friends to sign up, my chances might just be better?
If that is the case (and I know I am sounding very selfish here), if you guys don't have any problem, and if you find the time, do you mind signing up as well using my reference link? It could give me those few extra points to get that ticket!
I absolutely understand if you wouldn't want to either..!
Thanks!
