Lady Gaga, Lenny Kravitz among headliners for DNC concert

The concert will not only be an excellent opportunity for everyone who has helped make the convention a success to relax and celebrate, but it will be a great chance to show the country Camden’s amazing turnaround.”

Rapper Snoop Dogg will lead the concert called “Unity Party” for Democratic donors on the same day at Philadelphia’s Electric Factory. That concert also features Los Lobos.
