Michael Stipe of R.E.M. is also expected to be in attendance while Billboard reports that actors Maggie Gyllenhaal, Sasha Lane, and Peter Sarsgaard will be there too.

“We anticipate a vote on the Senate floor to confirm Brett Kavanaugh as early as Friday. It is critical we make our voices heard on the ground in Washington,” organizers Party Majority PAC writes on the event website. “If there was ever a moment when the voice of the people can come together in concert to change the fate of our nation, this is it.”
