The solo career of the Blackpink member Lisa, who has long been widely pegged for success outside the band, will perform at the Global Citizen Festival in September, becoming the fifth official headliner at that annual philanthropic concert event in Central Park.

Festival organizers are touting it as the K-pop idol’s first solo performance at a music festival. She’s only made a handful of solo appearances, the most recent of which was a three-song set in Paris in January.

No touring plans have yet been announced, so her presence on the bill guarantees a big global streaming tune-in for the performance.

Post Malone, Doja Cat, Jelly Roll, and Rauw Alejandro are also set to headline the festival. Hosted by Hugh Jackman, the concert takes place on September 28.

Tickets are free, albeit earned by “taking action” to further Global Citizen’s goals — which include “defeating poverty, defending the planet and demanding equity” for marginalized communities — on either the org’s app or at globalcitizenfestival.com.

“We are thrilled to join forces with Lisa for what will be her first ever solo performance at a music festival,” said Katie Hill, who serves as Global Citizen’s SVP and head of music, entertainment and artist relations, in a statement. “Lisa is not only an incredible performer, but also a powerful advocate, leveraging her voice and platform to drive action on some of the most urgent challenges our world is facing. We look forward to welcoming Lisa, and of course Lilies and Blinks, to Central Park in September.”

Hill further implored fans to “join us by taking action on the Global Citizen app, and together we can make a huge impact to end extreme poverty.”

Lisa, the Thai rapper, singer and dancer who has emerged as a favorite among many of the South Korean girl group’s fans, has been having a good week with the successful international rollout of “Rockstar,” the first single released under the partnership between RCA Records and her management company, Lloud Co.

Global Citizen has not yet unveiled full streaming details for music fans who want to tune in in September, but the org previously listed iHeartMedia as the concert’s exclusive U.S. audio partner. 

Live Nation is the production partner, with Done and Dusted and Diversified Production Services serving as the event’s producers.
