Per People, The four-day event will be based in Milwaukee, but appearances from politicians, activists, and celebrities around the country will all be virtual.

In a statement, Stephanie Cutter, the DNC’s program executive, said, “In just three days, we will kick off a Democratic 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.”

The DNC will air nightly (9-11 p.m. ET) beginning Monday, August 17.
