Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 to be held in Johannesburg, headlined by Beyoncé & JAY-Z
The Beyhive is finally going to see their Queen perform back in South Africa again. The last time we saw Beyonce' perform in the country was during the 46664 concert a few years back.
Earlier on today, the International advocacy organisation Global Citizen announced that Beyoncé & JAY-Z, amongst other local and international artists, will headline the first Global Citizen Festival to be held in Africa.
This will be a free-ticketed event to be held on the 2nd of December 2018 at the FNB Stadium, Johannesburg.
Yes, you read correctly, the tickets are free BUT in order to earn your free entry, you have to take action on health, nutrition and education, gender equality, water and sanitation, and the criminalization of poverty.
Basically, activists and fans can begin to earn their free tickets starting on August 21st and can sign up today at www.globalcitizen.org.za, demanding world leaders to make major investments to end extreme poverty and take a stand for women and girls."
Sounds easy right?
As always, people took to social media to express how they felt about what they have to do in order to get that free "golden" ticket.
A lot of fans were quite positive and excited to take part in such a worthy cause.
If you think I’m gonna become a volunteer at some NGO to earn a ticket to see Beyoncé in Dec then you’re ABSOLUTELY correct.— Chicago West (@ImQueziN) July 9, 2018
If Beyoncè thinks I'm gonna do community service, do voluntary work, participate in NPOs and NGOs ,sell ALL my organs just so I could get a ticket for the concert then she's ABSOLUTELY RIGHT! #GlobalCitizenFestivalSA pic.twitter.com/jgOHzInR5k— I Am Winnie Mandela (@MpiloReigns) July 9, 2018
Whilst others praised the man of the moment who is responsible in making this happen.

People will never get over Solange's last minute Afropunk cancelation .
Plot twist: Beyoncé cancels and Solange comes like she said she would.— To Infinity and Beyoncé* 🐼 (@PearlPillay) July 9, 2018
Yeah, others are just not feeling the ticket criteria around this festival. But it's for a good cause guys.
That Africans had to do charity work in order to see Beyoncé instead of just buying tickets like other children. https://t.co/Xx6UIfcXEz— Ez. (@EsmeMoloi) July 9, 2018
Wow, sarcastic much?
But at least some fans are diligently doing the ground work for their chance to see the Queen.
