Politicon, the “Unconventional Political Convention,” today announced this year’s headliners for its 5th annual event, which is set to take place on Saturday, October 26 & Sunday, October 27 at the Music City Center in Nashville, TN. The convention will feature top names in the worlds of politics and media, including Al Franken, James Comey, Sean Hannity, Sarah Huckabee Sanders and many more.
The event promises to be an engaging and informative weekend of political discourse and comedy in the midst of a heated primary and election season. Over the two days, participants will have the chance to witness and engage with top political thinkers in debates, panel discussions, radio and TV broadcasts, live podcast recordings, book signings, interviews, meet-and-greets and more.
In its fifth year, Politicon will continue to draw on both sides of the aisle for robust and rousing conversation, and for the first time ever, Politicon is moving from its home town in Los Angeles to Nashville which highlights its commitment to elevating bi-partisan discourse.
“It’s a blue city in a red state making it the perfect city for an event that brings together people of all political backgrounds,” said Politicon co-founder Simon Sidi. “The lineup we announced today reflects all beliefs and leanings, matching the diversity of the crowd that attends.”
