This summer, as early as June, M.I.A. will drop a brand new album. This is awesome news. And nearly as awesomely, she’ll also return to the stage, playing festivals in four big cities, as Brooklyn Vegan points out.
First off, she’ll play HARD Fest shows in both New York and L.A. The L.A. show will happen July 17 at L.A. Historic State Park, and the NYC show goes down July 24 at South Island Field on Governors Island. She’ll also top the bill at London’s Underage Festival, which comes to Victoria Park on August 1, and she’ll join Pavement, Big Boi, the Stooges, the xx, Girls, LCD Soundsystem, and more at the Øya Festival, which happens August 10-14 in Oslo, Norway. And with festival season just heating up, hopefully she’ll show up at a few more, too.
Below, we’ve got her summer schedule thus far.
07-17 Los Angeles, CA – L.A. Historic State Park
07-24 New York, NY – South Island Field (Governors Island)
08-01 London, England – Underage Festival
