This year’s Global Citizen Festival just keeps getting starrier.

While Beyoncé, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran and Pearl Jam will headline the free annual concert, Common and Tori Kelly will join them onstage Sept. 26 in New York’s Central Park as special guest performers, it was announced Wednesday.

Also added to the all-star line-up: Katie Holmes, Usher, Connie Britton, Freida Pinto, Gayle King, Laverne Cox and Sophia Bush, who will serve as the host committee.

Last month, Global Citizen announced that Stephen Colbert, Salma Hayek PInault, Hugh Jackman and wife Deborra Lee-Furness, Kerry Washington and Olivia Wilde will appear as the festival’s cohosts.

The star-studded annual bash works to raise awareness in hopes of ending extreme poverty on a global scale by 2030.

Tickets for the show, which takes place on Central Park’s Great lawn, are free but only available via lottery, with the last draw happening Sept. 18. MSNBC will air the full concert live, while NBC will show a one-hour special on Sept. 28.
