And to make the news even sweeter, Beyonce is bringing a few famous pals along.
Besides her husband (and recent collaborator) Jay-Z, the festival lineup includes Ed Sheeran, Pharrell Williams, Chris Martin and Usher. And it will be hosted by the likes of Naomi Campbell, Sir Bob Geldof, Gayle King, Tyler Perry and Forest Whitaker.

World leaders expected to address the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100, include President Cyril Ramaphosa, Amina J Mohammed, deputy secretary-general of the UN, President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana, President Mokgweetsi Masisi of Botswana and Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director-general of the World Health Organisation.
Since the first Global Citizen Festival in New York in 2012, it has grown into one of the largest platforms for young people around the world, calling on world leaders to honour their responsibilities in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and ending extreme poverty by 2030.
