Dubai is hosting one leg of Global Goal Live, a huge global charity concert on September 26. Big names like Coldplay, Alicia Keys and Metallica have been confirmed at the festival also being held in New York, Lagos, Seoul and more.
The 10-hour concert will be spread across six continents and aims to help raise $350 billion to achieve Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. These goals include ending extreme poverty, reducing income equality and tackling climate change.
The event is essentially this generation’s Live Aid. Held in 1985, Live Aid helped raise millions to combat Ethiopian famine. And anyone who’s seen the excellent Bohemian Rhapsody film will recognise this iconic Queen set below…
Dubai one of the host cities on September 26
While no announcement has been made on the venue and line up yet in Dubai, it would need to be somewhere huge if some of these names are coming our way!
Some of the acts include Red Hot Chili Peppers, Coldplay, Pharrell Williams, Metallica, Alicia Keys and Billie Eilish.
Here in the Dubailad office, we’d love to see Alicia Keys, Metallica and Coldplay on the lineup.
Either way, we’ll be front and centre when Global Goal Live comes to Dubai to support this amazing initiative!
