The fourth Democratic presidential debate is going to be a crowded affair.

Twelve White House hopefuls will appear on stage at once at the debate Oct. 15 in Westerville, Ohio, the most yet.

The Democratic National Committee announced the lineup Wednesday. Previously, the stage was limited to 10 candidates, which resulted in the first two debates being split into two consecutive nights.

The October debate will include the 10 lawmakers who appeared in the September debate – former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn, former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-Texas, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and businessman Andrew Yang – plus two more additional qualifiers (Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, and businessman Tom Steyer).

Candidates had to register at least 2% in four early state or national polls and acquire 130,000 donors.

The DNC on Friday sent a memo to the campaigns clarifying the debate would take place on one night.

"To address several inquiries we have received we are writing to let you know that, pending a final decision after the certification deadline, it is the intention of the DNC and our media partners to hold the October debate over one night on Tuesday October 15th," the organization wrote.
