Social media was buzzing earlier this week when it was announced that a star-studded lineup including Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Ed Sheeran, Oprah and other showbiz megastars will be at the FNB Stadium, in Jozi, in December to honour the 100th anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s birth. And people became even more excited when it was announced that tickets are FREE!
The Mandela 100 Global Citizen festival will be taking place on 2 December at the FNB Stadium. Here’s a sneak peek at the artist line-up:
Now back to the tickets, 70 000 (of the 100 000 tickets to be released) will be FREE, but you’re going to have to do some (online) work to earn your precious ticket.
A massive concert ticket lotto that you enter by helping others
What this means is that you will have to join campaigns that demand action from world leaders to eradicate extreme poverty by becoming a Global Citizen.
The more campaigns you join – by emailing and posting on social media, the more entries you get into the ticket lottery – and the greater your chance of getting a ticket (and seeing Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Oprah in person).
