International advocacy group Global Citizen just revealed the full list of headliners for its 2018 festival on the Great Lawn in New York City’s Central Park. The Weeknd, Cardi B, Janet Jackson, Janelle Monáe, as well as Shawn Mendes will headline the free-ticketed event. This marks the second live performance in which Cardi B has announced since she pulled out of the North American leg of Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic world tour.

Accompanying the big music acts is a special guest performance by John Legend with lead hosts Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee Furness to take the stage once again. All celebrity participants in the installment aim to help the organization’s mission of demanding that “world leaders fulfill their obligation to achieve the UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development and end extreme poverty by 2030,” as per a statement.

The festival will commence on September 29. Head over to Global Citizen’s offical website for further details on ticket raffles. In other music stories, Mick Jenkins just shared his new “Bruce Banner” single alongside forthcoming Piece of a Man LP.
