Neil Young, Foo Fighters, Black Keys to head New York City's Global Festival

On Saturday, September 29th Neil Young, Foo Fighters, the Black Keys, Band of Horses and K'naan will play the inaugural Global Festival at New York City's Central Park. According to Rolling Stone, the fest is "a concert designed to bring awareness and funds to the cause of ending global poverty."

You won't be able to buy tickets, instead, they will be given away for free via a lottery through the online and app-based platform called Global Citizen, which will make sure you're doing your part by either helping the cause or just educating yourself on the issue. More info to come.
