Global Citizen Festival Ended With attendess reporting robberies and stabbing after the show.
Global Citizen Festival will be considered a successful event as it was one of the anticipated shows in South Africa. With mega supsertars such as Beyonce, Jay C, Usher and many other international artists to grace the event with a mind blowing performance, the end of the show wasnt a pleasant one for some of the people who attended.
After the close of the event yesterday, social media was flooding with reports of heinous activities happening outside the venue of the show. The crowd who had the chance to share with peeps ongoing events at the FNB stadium described the saddening events ongoing at the stadium.
It was said that two people were stabbed, Phones were stolen, the police left the helpless crowd and there was no form of help, there was also a report of stampede. Most people blamed the organizers of the Global Citizen Festival as the safety there was reportedly said to be very poor.
See tweets below.
Home safe. Beyoncé is worth all the hype. Jay Z is officially uncancelled. The organizers of #GlobaCitizenFestivalSA should be tried in a court of law for putting us all in danger in various ways while trying to access the stadium as well as trying to leave the stadium.

I have never felt unsafe and scared like i did after the concert. The festival could have organized the transport and traffic situation way better. All the cops said was that we should keep phones away as they have no energy to chase criminals #GlobaCitizenFestivalSA

What’s happening outside the #GlobaCitizenFestivalSA is horrific! It’s sad. That the actual citizens are endangered. I had to shout & fight my way from my phone being taken from my hand. There’s similar screams everywhere where we’re getting Ubers outside. @GlblCtzn

I’ll write a proper thread about this when I’m not as exhausted & not as angry so I can actually think clearly but My. God. It was a mess. I still don’t know if some of my friends made it home #GlobaCitizenFestivalSA
