Thursday, Aug. 20
Biden will formally accept the party's nomination from Wilmington's Chase Center on Thursday evening.
Additional speakers for the week are still expected to be announced. The DNC also released a list of Americans from around the country who will share their personal experiences and discuss their support for the Biden-Harris campaign during the convention.
Eva Longoria (Monday), Tracee Ellis Ross (Tuesday), Kerry Washington (Wednesday) and Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Thursday) will join the convention lineup as emcees.
The convention will feature a series of star-studded performances by Leon Bridges, The Chicks, Common, Billie Eilish, Jennifer Hudson, John Legend, Billy Porter, Maggie Rogers, Prince Royce, Stephen Stills and more. Viewers and attendees can expect musical acts all four nights.
The performances, from the national anthem and American classics to new songs, are "expected to draw in new viewers who may not have tuned into conventions of previous years," according to the DNC.
On Monday night, 57 youth choir members representing all 57 U.S. states and territories will perform the national anthem remotely.
The party nominating conventions historically have marked the start of fall general election campaigns. During a normal year, party members converge in one city, holding meetings during the day with delegates gathering for several hours each night to listen to speeches.
Here's how the Democratic National Committee describes the convention on its website: "The convention is an opportunity to show the American people what we stand for as a party and unite around our shared values. In addition to fulfilling their nominating duties, Democratic Party members from across the country will also work together during the convention to adopt the official 2020 Democratic Party platform."
During each night of the convention, ABC News will air an hour of primetime coverage of the proceedings on this ABC station beginning at 10 p.m. ET | 9 p.m. CT | 7 p.m. PT.
Live streaming coverage will begin each night on ABC News Live at 7 p.m. ET | 6 p.m. CT. | 4 p.m. PT.
The Republican National Convention is the week after the Democratic convention. It will take place largely virtually from Aug. 24-27, with only pared-down convention business proceedings happening in person in Charlotte, North Carolina, as originally planned.
