On June 26 and 27, twenty Democratic hopefuls took the stage at The Knight Concert Hall inside the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami for the first Democratic debate of the 2020 presidential election, which aired on NBC, Telemundo, and MSNBC. With such a large number of candidates, the debate spanned two nights, each with 10 candidates lined up across the stage, designed by Clickspring Design and lit by The Lighting Design Group.
