BTS’ Jung Kook has joined the 2023 Global Citizen Festival lineup just weeks before the live music event is scheduled to take place at Central Park’s Great Lawn in New York City. The musician will co-headline the festival alongside previously announced headliners Anitta, Ms. Lauryn Hill, and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

“I’m so thrilled to join this year’s Global Citizen Festival as a headliner!” Jung Kook shared in a statement. “The festival sheds light on important causes and drives action and I’m happy to take part in it. I can’t wait to perform in front of many people at the Great Lawn in Central Park.”

BTS has yet to take the stage during the New York City iteration of the festival during its long-running history. However, the group delivered a ” Butter ” performance from Seoul during the 2021 Global Citizen Live event. Jung Kook’s performance will mark the first time anyone from the group performs on the main stage.

Jung Kook officially launched his solo era in July with the Latto-assisted single “Seven.” The release followed the arrival of “My You” and “Still With You” to streaming services after previously only being available on YouTube and SoundCloud. Over the course of the summer, the singer has performed on Good Morning America and in BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge.

The Sept. 23 event will also feature performances from Megan Thee Stallion, Conan Gray, Stray Kids, DJ D-Nice, and Sofia Carson.


Global Citizen Festival 2023 has set its focus on helping to drive action to end extreme poverty, particularly in the Global South, with additional efforts set towards combating gender inequities internationally. “The campaign will unite millions of voices, amplified by the world’s biggest artists, to demand urgent action from world leaders gathering in New York City for the United Nations General Assembly in September,” a statement for the event reads.
