Stevie Wonder, Green Day, Pharrell Williams, The Lumineers and more are set to headline the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park on September 23, the festival announced Tuesday.
The star-studded event, which began in 2012 to raise funds to help eradicate global poverty, also features performances from Pharrell Williams, Big Sean, and Andra Day, all of whom have been vocal critics of President Donald Trump.
While hosting a celebrity-studded fundraising concert for Hillary Clinton last June, Stevie Wonder told the audience that the presidential election was a “fight” and said: “We cannot allow hatred to be in America ever. This is the United States of all the people, of all cultures and ethnicities. My prayer is that we understand that and don’t lose ourselves.
”Punk rock band Green Day have repeatedly bashed Trump, most recently revealing to Rolling Stone that they shout “F*ck you, Donald Trump” at every show on their nationwide tour while performing the title track from their 2004 album, “American Idiot.”
Music super-producer and singer Pharrell Williams has been a very vocal critic of President Trump. Days before the election, Williams told an audience at Variety‘s Inclusion summit that Trump’s campaign refrain, “Make America Great Again,” made him “not want to wear red white and blue for a while.”
American idiots for sure.
