Rapper is keen to start up his own global music festival with his band The Black Eyed Peas headlining in every country.

The 'Scream and Shout' hitmaker wants to strike up a new line of summer events around the globe with his band - made up of Fergie, Taboo and, reported Daily Mirror.

"I go to YouTube to hear music and it's there streaming, for free. Very few artists have made money by selling records. I am trying to figure out how to make a Black Eyed Peas festival in every country. I want one in Brazil, France, Japan and the UK and South Africa and Asia," he said.

The 38-year-old producer, who has previously recorded tracks with Justin Bieber and Britney Spears, has stated he is keen to move his record label Music Group to the UK and eventually own a workshop, where he can nurture new talent.

"I had a label over in America and I thought, you know what, I want to base my label out in the UK, because I like this place, it's fresh. Why was I making music in America when it succeeds first in the UK? That's dumb. I've got a global perspective, thinking global and acting local."
