Janelle Monáe, Maxwell and more to perform at Women's March in Washington

The Women's March on Washington this weekend will see performances from the likes of Janelle Monáe and Maxwell, it has been confirmed. 

The event, which is described on its official website as a "grassroots effort comprised of dozens of independent coordinators at the state level", is set to take place on Saturday, January 21. The rally will begin at 10am and is due to end at 1.15pm, which is when the march will start. 

Billboard reports that Mary Chapin Carpenter, the Indigo GirlsMC Lyte, Samantha Ronson, Toshi Reagon and Emily Wells are also set to perform at Saturday's march.

Janelle Monáe issued a statement on her involvement and said: “I am honored to join this critical movement to bring justice and equality to all. Music has always been a powerful tool for galvanising unity and I believe that singing and standing together, our voices will be stronger than any force that tries to repress us.”
