The 2017 Global Citizen Festival Hamburg has announced the lineup for its July 6 event, and Coldplay, The Chainsmokers and Ellie Goulding top the lineup.

Those heavyhitting acts will be joined by German actor/singer Herbert Grönemeyer at the festival, which takes place right before the 2017 G20 Summit, where the world's most powerful leaders will meet. Global Citizen allows fans to win tickets by supporting worldly causes, like global poverty, hunger and disease. This is the first time the festival will be coming to Germany.

The festival is offering 9,000 tickets to those who sign up an complete tasks on their website, starting March 14.

"In bringing the Global Citizen Festival to Germany for the first time, we are calling on the G20 to take action and responsibility for moving forward on the Global Goals," said Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans in a statement. "They have had two years to address the Goals, and while some leaders are stepping up, others are engaging with empty promises. As Global Citizens, we do not accept this; we do not accept the status quo or believe these issues are beyond our capacity to fix. With the support of the international community and our partners convened in Hamburg this July, the G20 leaders will hear our call. Together we will make a lasting impact for generations to come."

Global Citizen is one of the many concerts The Chainsmokers will be playing this year; their Memories: Do Not Open Tour begins in April. Get tickets for The Chainsmokers' tour here.
