Jason Derulo and Halsey will co-headline the third annual Forbes Under 30 Music Festival at Boston’s City Hall Plaza on Oct, 16. Gallant and Delta Rae round out the bill, and will launch the 2016 Forbes Under 30 Summit Oct. 16-19, which is expected to draw over 5,000 entrepreneurs.
Forbes is partnering with Global Citizen for the third consecutive year to produce the event. In tune with the Global Citizen model, 2,000 “citizens” can enter for the chance to win a pair of free tickets by taking action to help end extreme poverty. Fans can visit this website to complete one online “action.”
The Summit features five stages with panels, live demos, and such speakers as Sir Richard Branson, Ashton Kutcher, Jessica Alba, Chrissy Teigen, and Deepak Chopra, as well access to the Forbes Under 30 Village in City Hall Plaza. The Forbes Under 30 Village offers networking opportunities, presentations and performances, career opportunities, food and drink. Details can be found here.
