Black Eyed Peas and Katy Perry have been confirmed as headliners for Rock the Vote’s live virtual Democracy Summer event on Thursday, June 18.
They will be joined by a host of other stars, including Eve, Saweetie, Chuck D, Ne-Yo, Big Freedia, MAX, and Lucy Hale.
The event will be hosed by actors Logan Browning and Rosario Dawson and will be streamed at 7 p.m. CST on http://www.democracysummer.org , and Democracy Summer’s Facebook and YouTube pages.
“I’m excited to be a part of this kickoff to Democracy Summer 2020 with so many amazing talents, activists and speakers,” Perry told Billboard.
“The young people of America are speaking loud and clear on the streets and online, and come November, it will be more important than ever to fight for justice and equality, and against systemic racism, with our ballots,” she added.
“Now, more than ever, voting is key for long-term change,” Black Eyed Peas said. “The youth vote is going to decide the future of America. It’s not just our duty but our honor to spread the word in an election year.”
