A slew of artists have been added to the official lineup of the Democratic National Convention to be held between Monday, August 17 and Thursday, August 20.
The 3-day virtual event will feature performances by artists of the likes of Billie Eilish, John Legend, The Chicks, Maggie Rogers, Leon Bridges, Jennifer Hudson, Common, and Stephen Stills, who have each remained vocal about their political leanings, in addition to encouraging their audience to register to vote and participate in the upcoming 2020 Presidential Elections.
“I’m excited to be performing at this year’s @DemConvention in support of @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris!” Legend shared his enthusiasm on Twitter.
During the event, former Vice President Joe Biden will accept the Democratic Party’s nomination for president.
“These artists are committed to engaging with, registering, and mobilizing voters to get us over the finish line in November,” shared Stephanie Cutter, the 2020 DNC program executive.
