The base released a promo video on their website, showing what I assume is the all of the performers, including some that haven't been announced. The new ones include:

A-10 Demo Team???
SRC Airshows Raptor Pitts (plus dogfight with Immortal Red Baron)
P-51 "Wee Willy II"
Bill Stein
Coast Guard SAR Demo

It's unclear if all of these will be there, but the A-10 Demo Team is currently available for that weekend, so it's certainly possible. The clip is very short, so maybe it's just for the pyro team. See for yourselves.

The website got an overhaul today with a new performers section. I can’t believe this, but the A-10 Demo is confirmed! All other performers in the video were also confirmed.

I’m thinking this won’t be the A-10 Demo Team, but an A-10 doing a more limited flying display similar to the F-35 at the previous show.

Meet the F-35A Demo Team's new demo pilot for 2020 and 2021.
With over 800 flight hours in both the F22 Raptor and the F-35A Lightning II, Capt. Kristin "BEO" Wolfe is a combat veteran fighter pilot from the 388th Fighter Wing at Hill Air Force Base, Utah.

She'll be "sending it" for the next two years, showcasing the world's most advanced fighter jet to people across the world.

In reviewing their website they have a section for downloading a 'Mandatory Vehicle Base Access Pass' for parking and a line that says you will be denied entry if you do not have a base pass. I haven't seen this for air shows before, is it a way of limiting the number of vehicles on base?

I think that's the idea, it seems to be getting more popular with base shows that are free. Yuma had a certain number of free car passes available for their night show since parking was limited and it seems like I've heard several other bases doing the same. It's a way to avoid the hassle of way too many people showing up.
