If you happen to find yourself in Johannesburg, South Africa this December then you're there at the right time since there will be a free festival with a stacked line-up.

There will be 100,000 tickets and 70,000 of them are free for you to earn by doing your bit to alleviate poverty in society.

Music fans, activists and anyone interested in attending the festival can earn their free tickets by signing up on the Global Citizen website. Ticket-acquiring methods will be detailed further August 21.

The event will be hosted by Oprah Winfrey, Naomi Campbell, Gayle King, Bob Geldof, Tyler Perry and Forest Whitaker.

The December event is the culmination of Global Citizen's Mandela 100 campaign in partnership with the House of Mandela; a series of global events honouring the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela in his centenary year.

With Russia eliminated, this marks the fifth straight World Cup in which the host has not been able to protect home soil. Italy, France , Germany and Portugal were the semi-finalists at the 2006 World Cup , the last time this had happened.

Set to take place at the FNB Stadium, the concert will feature the likes of Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Ed Sheeran, Eddie Vedder, Usher, Cassper Nyovest, Chris Martin and Pharrell Williams. The Global Citizen organisation is a movement of engaged citizens who are using their collective voice to end extreme poverty by 2030.

The show will be the culmination of the Global Poverty Project's Mandela 100 campaign, a series of worldwide events honouring the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela in his centenary year. The aim is to encourage people around the world, particularly young people to do good deeds and take an interest in what's happening in their respective countries.

One of the performers from South Africa, Madjozi, said: "Without the sacrifices of great South Africans like Nelson Mandela, I wouldn't be able to live the life I lead today".

So how do I get a free ticket?
