Jung Kook To Co-Headline 2023 Global Citizen Festival

Jung Kook of BTS has been making a name for himself ever since his solo debut, and now he’s co-headlining the 2023 Global Citizen Festival.

The 2023 Global Citizen Festival

According to Thania Garcia at Variety, Jung Kook made a statement about his excitement for the festival.

“I’m so thrilled to join this year’s Global Citizen Festival as a headliner! 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.”

Garcia at Variety also reported the festival’s importance in Anne Beathe Tvinnereim’s words. Tvinnereim is the Norwegian minister of international development.

“Extreme poverty, hunger and food insecurity threaten lives and health. The call for action is crystal clear: We need to increase investments in climate-robust, small-scale food production. Growth in agriculture is the most efficient way to create jobs, fight poverty and combat hunger. The Global Citizen Festival is important to mobilize more people and more investments in reaching the world’s Common Goals – our Sustainable Development Goals.”

There are still the smallest of windows open to get tickets for the festival. Read about how to earn those tickets here.

The Solo Career of Jung Kook

Jung Kook has been making a name for himself as a solo artist. His hit single, “Seven (feat. Latto),” came out two months ago on July 14th. It became an instant success, immediately debuting on top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. As part the song’s promotion, the Kpop idol kicked off the GMA Summer Concert Series.

Jung Kook joining a plethora of headlining artists for the 2023 Global Citizen Festival is yet another step in his rising solo career. Fans can certainly look forward to more success from the BTS member.
