The Women’s March on Wednesday released the names of the artists who will perform at the kick off of the Jan. 21 protest, with Janelle Monae, Maxwell, and Angelique Kidjo headlining.

Other performers include the Indigo Girls, Toshi Reagon, Samantha Ronson, Emily Wells, DJ Rekha, MC Lyte, St. Beauty, Beverly Bond, Alia Sharief, DJ Rimarkable, Amber Coffman, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Climbing PoeTree.

Gloria Steinem and Harry Belafonte are honorary co-chairs, and the march has partnered with Planned Parenthood and other women’s healthcare advocates for a turnout expected to approach around 200,000 people in Washington, DC.

The announcement comes with the addition of Questlove, Grimes, Matt and Kim, KT Tunstall, Neko Case, Rakim, TV on the Radio, and Lila Downs to the March’s Artists Table, a high-profile support committee of around 150 artists chaired by America Ferrera.
