If you’re unable to see him while he’s On the Run with his talented wife Beyonce, you can still catch him this fall. Jay Z will be headlining the third annual Global Citizen Festival in New York City.

The festival, held on Sept. 27, is organized to help fight global poverty. In fact, Global Citizen says it wants to end extreme poverty by 2030.

The event, which will take place in Central Park, will be free, however, those interested in attending will need to secure tickets by earning points by doing something to combat poverty. There’s also the option to use Twitter and tweet a “thank you” to Erna Solberg, the Norwegian Prime Minister whose goal is to lower the amount of child deaths. A third way to get tickets is to sign a petition that would help children around the world be immunized to thwart off fatal diseases.

The Roots will also be playing at the festival, along with No Doubt, Tiesto, Fun and Carrie Underwood. A total of 48,000 tickets will be given away.

You can learn more about the concert and getting tickets at the Global Citizen Festival website.
