Here's who all will be speaking at Paisley Park's Prince celebration

Members of The Revolution are scheduled to speak.

Tickets to Paisley Park's latest event, Celebration 2017, are nearly sold out. However, organizers just announced Wednesday who all will be speaking.

Celebration 2017 is Paisley Park's four-day event to honor Prince on the one-year anniversary of his death. We already knew The Revolution, Morris Day and the Time, New Power Generation, and members of 3RDEYEGIRL would be there.

But now we have the full list of special guests. It includes all sorts of people who collaborated with or were friends with the Purple One. According to a news release, the list includes musicians, recording engineers, photographers, stylists and more.

The idea is to bring together people who worked with Prince to "actualize his creative visions."

Among those speaking will be members of The Revolution – Bobby Z, Lisa Coleman, Wendy Melvoin, Matt Fink (Doctor Fink) and Mark Brown (BrownMark).

And here are the rest of the speakers: Afshin Shahidi, Arturo Padilla, Chris James, Chuck Hermes, Damaris Lewis, Damon Dickson, Dave Rusan, David Z, Debbie McGuan, Dylan Dresdow, Jeff Munson, Jeremy Gavin, Kim Berry, Kip Blackshire, Levi Seacer, Morris Hayes, Randee St. Nicholas, Red White, Rob Colby, Sal Greco, Sam Jennings, Shelby J, Stacia Lang, Steve Parke, Susan Rogers, Takumi Suetsugu, and Tony Mosley.

Celebration 2017 will be modeled after Prince: A Celebration festival that was held at the Paisley Park studio back in 2000.

The event will run April 20-23. You can snatch up some of the remaining tickets here.

Prince died last year on April 21.
