And in case that's not enough stars for you, the festival will be hosted by Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness, Priyanka Chopra, Salma Hayek, Neil Patrick Harris, Seth Meyers, and Chelsea Handler! Now THAT'S a lineup!
Jackman shared the exciting announcement on Twitter, posting:
According to a press release, free tickets to the festival can be earned by "completing actions to help promote and ensure that equitable and quality education is available to all, particularly refugee children and access for girls & women."
What a great cause!
