As world leaders gathered in Hamburg, Germany for the 12th annual G20 summit, the leaders of the music world did their own flexing on a concert stage.
The likes of Coldplay, Shakira, Pharrell Williams, Ellie Goulding, Herbert Grönemeyer and Andreas Bourani lined up for first Global Citizen Festival in Europe, held at Barclaycard Eve on the eve of the high-level pow wow.
Global Citizen, the not-for-profit social action platform, organized the concert as a type of musical rally to remind heads of government to meet the needs of the world’s most vulnerable, from the poor, hungry, and the displaced.
