Chance the Rapper is taking a page out of Jay Z’s book by hosting a free concert to encourage young voters.

The show will take place in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois, on November 7th, one day before the nation votes for the next president, and include Chicago-based artists like Twin Peaks and Taylor Bennett.¬†As of now, Chance is only slated to host, but it seems more than likely that he’ll get up to play a track or two.

Although Chance has shared that he’s a Hillary Clinton supporter and has criticized Trump on Twitter, the concert doesn’t appear to be in support of any particular platform. Instead, he aims to encourage young voters to vote. “This election is very important, a chance for new leaders and new opportunities to emerge,” he said in a press release about the event.

His organization SocialWorks will be on hand, and after the concert Chance will lead the crowd in a march to the polls.

The concert will take place at the city’s Virgin Hotel.
