The only catch? The festival is in New York's Central Park - but well worth a plane ticket we'd say. If you don't make it there in person you'll still be able to watch it  - the festival will be broadcast live on youtube.com and screened on BBC One on 28 September.

The festival marks the launch of the United Nation's Global Goals, which aim to fight inequality, protect our planet and end extreme poverty by 2030. Chime For Change, the charity which Gucci founded in 2013 to support projects that champion girls and women around the world, and which counts Beyoncé and Salma Hayek as ambassadors, is also joining forces with Global Citizen.

'Through our Chime For Change campaign, over the last three years we have been able to convene and activate a powerful coalition of those who share our belief that girls and women globally should have an equal opportunity for education, health and justice,' said Gucci President Marco Bizzarri.  'This new partnership with Global Citizen will increase the momentum and impact of our campaign by harnessing the scale and global platform of Global Citizen to engage millions – especially young people – by educating them and encouraging meaningful action in support of girls and women.'
