Hillary Clinton’s campaign announced that Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez, Jon Bon Jovi, and other artists will travel to battleground states for a performance series called “Love Trumps Hate.”

More artists will be announced in the coming days.

The campaign said that the intent of the series is to “energize our supporters and encourage them to turn out to vote on Election Day or to take advantage of early voting options in their states.”

They will also help organize volunteers for the final weeks of the campaign. 

A flood of actors and musicians are expected to descend on swing states in the remaining three weeks of the race, just as they have in recent cycles. Perry and Bon Jovi also campaigned for Barack Obama, and Lopez appeared in a Latinos for Obama video for his 2012 reelection campaign.

Bon Jovi and Perry already have been on the campaign trail for Clinton, and Perry performed at the Democratic National Convention, in addition to numerous Clinton fundraisers.

Update: Bon Jovi will perform in Pittsburgh on Oct. 27 and in Tampa on Nov. 5. Lopez will perform Oct. 29 in Miami.
