The 2020 Democratic National Convention will include musical performances from The Chicks, Billie Eilish and John Legend.
The lineup for the four-day event was announced Friday and also includes Common, Jennifer Hudson, Billy Porter, Stephen Stills, Leon Bridges, Maggie Rogers and Prince Royce.
“In just three days, we will kick off a Democratic National Convention that will look and feel very different than past conventions. It will truly be a convention across America, and these incredible artists will help us tell the story of where we are as a country today under Donald Trump’s failed leadership, and the promise of what we can and should be with Joe Biden as president. These artists are committed to engaging with, registering and mobilizing voters to get us over the finish line in November,” Stephanie Cutter, 2020 Democratic National Convention Program Executive said in a release obtained by Variety.
Renditions of the national anthem along with American classics as well as new songs will be performed during the four-day event.
The virtual event begins Aug. 17 and will span over eight hours of prime-time programming for four nights until Aug 20.
Programming is set to be broadcast and streamed online each night from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. EDT.
At the convention, Democrats will formally nominate the presidential ticket and also adopt a party platform and rules.
