Three contenders for the 2020 Democratic nomination will answer questions at a town hall in Austin, Texas, moderated by CNN’s Jake Tapper and Dana Bash.

The town hall at the South by Southwest conference on March 10 will featured three Democratic candidates for president: former Maryland Rep. John Delaney, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

CNN announced the partnership with the annual conference Thursday in Texas’ capital city.

Delaney will kick off the event at 7 p.m. ET, followed by Gabbard at 8 p.m. and Buttigieg at 9 p.m. All three events will be held at Austin City Limits at the Moody Theater.

A former three-term congressman, Delaney was the first Democrat to announce he would run for president in 2017. Gabbard, an Iraq War veteran, jumped into the race in early February. And Buttigieg, who would be the party’s first gay nominee, announced an exploratory committee in January.

The “CNN Democratic Presidential Town Hall @ SXSW” will air on CNN, CNN International and CNN Español, beginning at 7 p.m. ET and 4 p.m. PT. Viewers without a cable subscription can watch on or via CNNgo on mobile devices and connected televisions.
