Kesha, Seth Rogen and Fleetwood Mac‘s Mick Fleetwood will speak at South by Southwest, set to take place March 10th through 19th in Austin, Texas.

The latest crop of featured speakers boasts an impressive mix of performers, politicians, activists and entrepreneurs including Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Senator Cory Booker, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, GLAAD President Sarah Kate Ellis, Bob Odenkirk, Tinder founder Sean Rad and Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin.

While Fleetwood, Booker and Odenkirk will deliver solo addresses, many of the featured speakers will be in conversation with others or part of larger panels. Kesha, for instance, will speak with Amy Emmerich of Refinery29 and Louis-Dreyfus will talk Veep with other members of the HBO comedy’s cast. Rogen, meanwhile, will appear alongside frequent collaborator Evan Goldberg, Sam Catlin and Garth Ennis to discuss their AMC show, Preacher.

SXSW also announced an additional keynote speaker for 2017, Jessica Shortall, the managing director of Texas Competes, a state-wide coalition of companies that uses data to show why Texas should be welcoming to LGBTQ people. Among the other keynote speakers at SXSW this year are Lee Daniels, Gareth Edwards, Zane Lowe, Nile Rodgers and Jill Soloway. Previously announced featured speakers include Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic, the B-52’s Cindy Wilson, Sammy Hagar, John Cena and Jake Tapper.

A current list of speakers is available on the SXSW website, where the festival’s latest film and music lineups can also be perused.
