Donald Trump’s inauguration is Friday. But for Philadelphia, the bigger event is Saturday: The Women’s March on Philadelphia.

The sister march that’s an affiliate of the massive Women’s March on Washington is expecting to draw thousands of participants Saturday for a march and rally from about 10 a.m. through the afternoon.

And whether it’s for your pre-march, pump-up needs or to play from your phone during the march, you’re going to need a playlist of power ballads and straight-up female empowerment tunes. Lucky for you, we have one.

The playlist starts off with songs like “Where is the Love?” by the Black Eyed Peas and “Glass Ceiling” by Metric to set the stage. Then it moves into inspirational tunes (Hi Katy Perry, Beyonce and Lady Gaga) about independence, fighting the man and rising up in unity. And the three-and-a-half hour playlist ends with songs of the hopeful variety, like Kendrick’s “Alright” and Sia’s “Bird Set Free.”

Here’s the playlist:

And the full details of the event:
