The festival will take place virtually on Election Day: November 8.
Fans RSVP to access the Mandoline-hosted stream with a selfie from outside their polling place or at home with their blank, unmarked ballot. Underage fans respond by letting the #iVoted festival know what year they’ll be turning 18 in and why they’re excited to vote. Non-citizens and ineligible voters can RSVP by letting the group know which artist they’re most looking forward to. The RSVP portal opens later this year and fans can subscribe to the festival mailing list to be alerted.

#iVoted was founded by Emily White, Patrick Sansone of Wilco and Mike Luba for the 2018 midterm elections by activating over 150 sites in 37 states. During the pandemic, the group produced #iVoted Festival 2020, appeared on the cover of Pollstar magazine and followed up with #iVoted Festival Georgia to boost turnout in the 2021 special election that determined control of the US Senate. White leads a team that is 91% female, non-binary, BIPOC or LBGTQ+.
