On Sunday, a slew of stars will promote peace by performing in a massive outdoor concert on the Venezuela-Colombia border. Juanes came up with the idea and asked other artists to join him, and Miguel Bosé, Juan Luis Guerra, Juanes, Ricardo Montaner, Alejandro Sanz, Juan Fernando Velasco and Carlos Vives have confirmed that they’ll be lending the Colombian singer a hand.

On Mar. 7, Juanes went public with his idea for the performance after tensions rose in the region following the death of Raúl Reyes, a prominent figure for the FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia), who was killed by Colombian soldiers on Ecuadorian soil. “As citizens we have a very important responsibility, and it’s that we have to remain united right now…and always. We can’t allow things to get any worse…We’re going to do something so that we continue to unite against adversity,” the 35-year-old explained at that time.

The free concert will take place on the Simon Bolivar Bridge linking Cucuta, Colombia, and San Antonio del Tachira, Venezuela. In an effort to demonstrate that unity can be multinational, all of the artists will wear white, and they’ve asked concertgoers to do the same.
