Democratic National Convention 2020: Schedule & Speakers For Final 2 Days
The Democratic National Convention has a massive lineup of celebrities and politicians planned for its final two days.
Both nights’ main events are scheduled for 9 p.m. until 11 p.m. ET, though there are Daytime events and pre-shows ahead of both. The daytime events take place from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. ET and are largely Caucus and Council meetings. The pre-show occurs in the two hours leading up to the main program and features panel discussions and live-streamed performances.
Wednesday evening will be kicked off with remarks from Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts), followed by a performance by singer Billie Eilish. Former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, Gov. Tony Evers (D-Wisconsin) and Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-New Mexico) are then scheduled to speak.
Former Congresswoman and staunch gun control advocate Gabrielle Giffords will also make an appearance and will be followed by a performance from Jennifer Hudson.
Ending the evening will be former Vice President Joe Biden‘s running mate herself, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-California). Concluding the program will be former President Barack Obama, who is expected to deliver a powerful speech and emphasize party unity.
Thursday will wrap up the nearly-weeklong event with an equally impressive slew of speakers.
Entertainment will include performances by The Chicks and John Legend & Common.
Other lawmakers set to speak Thursday include Sens. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wisconsin), Tammy Duckworth (D-Illinois), Chris Coons (D-Delaware) and former presidential candidate Andrew Yang.
Finally, Biden will take to the virtual stage and conclude the program.
