The Roots' Questlove will also be doing his own DJ set during the event.
The lineup also comes on International Women's Day, and organizers state the following:
For 2019, the festival is making deliberate curatorial choices that focus and highlight the contributions of women in music. You will find them on every stage, playing every instrument, as leaders, composers, arrangers, improvisers, collaborators and more. It's our distinct pleasure and honour to invite these exceptionally talented artists to be featured at the festival this year.
