Alongside the G20 summit in Hamburg, musicians and other speakers joined more than 10,000 fans to push world leaders to end extreme poverty. The Global Citizen Festival aims to bring a new energy and address inequality.
First organized by Global Citizen back in 2012, the annual concert aims to draw attention to social issues, including access to health care, clean drinking water and women's rights. More than 8 million people are involved around the world; 11,000 of them were at Thursday's concert.
