New York City -- Everyone's favorite philanthropic music festival, Global Citizen Festival, is back with Jay Z, No Doubt, Carrie Underwood, fun., The Roots, and Tiesto.

The third edition of Global Citizen will take place in Central park on September 27 with the artists above plus 60,000 'Global Citizens.' Tickets to the music festival are free but, as the name suggests, admission requires more than a mere RSVP. 

In order to win tickets, hopeful festivalgoers must take action with Global Citizen in their efforts to end extreme poverty by 2030. By taking steps towards the organization's Vaccines, Education, and Sanitation campaigns, you can earn points - 8 of which are needed to enter the draw for festival tickets. Your best bet for earning said points is to follow the path below, then enter the draw for free tickets.

Global Citizen will draw 24,000 winners from the pool of activists with 8 or more points. Each winner will then have 7 days to claim two tickets for a grand total of 48,000 free tickets to the event. The first draw will take place on July 29, with more occurring August 15, August 29, and September 11. On September 16, a re-lottery of any tickets not claimed by past winners will take place. Accumulated more than 8 points? 6 entries are allowed per person, with each entry costing 8 points. 

If you don't want to take chances, you can opt for the festival's VIP options. $75 gets you The Global VIP Experience, $125 The Premiere Global VIP Experience, and $675 The Ultimate Global VIP Experience. You can also enter for your chance to win VIP tickets to the festival by sharing this Facebook photo or purchasing an IMPACK: Global Citizen Action Pack by July 31. The pack includes a Global Citizen t-shirt, bracelets, "I'm Busy Giving a Shit" bathroom door sign, and a USB keychain. The IMPACK is $27 plus shipping.
