By Amanda Wicks

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

He announced that he’d be performing in a Parade to the Polls concert in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois, on November 7, one day before the nation votes for the next president.

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.

Besides Chance, other Chicago-based artists like Twin Peaks and Taylor Bennett will perform. His organization SocialWorks will be on hand, and after the concert Chance will head to the polls with the crowd.

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