Attendees old and new are going to love the diversity of perspectives we’re bringing together July 29th and 30th.”

CNN’s Senior Vice President for Premium Content, Ed O’Keefe, added, “In a remarkably short period of time, Politicon has proven to be an exciting and intriguing event for thoughtful political discourse, with incredible access to journalists, politicians, and pundits alike. CNN is excited to participate with a full lineup of programming featuring our anchors, correspondents, reporters, and guests that Politicon fans and CNN viewers and readers will all enjoy.”

The first round of confirmed Politicon participants includes well-known names from across the political spectrum: James Carville, Ann Coulter, Tomi Lahren, Pod Save America, Rep. Ted Lieu, Symone Sanders, Anthony Atamanuik, Michael Steele, Bill Kristol, Al Madrigal, David Frum, Robert Davi, Krystal Ball, Lizz Winstead, Grace Parra, Guy Benson, Jen Psaki, Dr. Alveda King, Bob Shrum, Touré, Amy Holmes, Scottie Nell Hughes, Sally Kohn, Elisha Krauss, Greg Proops, Malcolm Nance, and Anthony Scaramucci.

More top-tier participants will be announced this month.

Attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy a full weekend of debates & panels, radio & TV broadcasts, podcasts, Q&A’s, comedy shows, book signings, interviews, and meet & greets. With rooms ranging from 50-seaters to large-scale auditoriums, attendees will be up close and personal with political heavyweights, revel in the endless humor, dissect documentaries and parodies with filmmakers, and possibly even interact with a few of history’s greatest leaders.

Last year, more than 8,000 fans flocked to the 2nd annual Politicon. This year, even more political nerds are expected in Los Angeles for the 3rd annual Politicon convention at the Pasadena Convention Center the weekend of Saturday, July 29th and Sunday, July 30th.
