"Die Young" Singer Kesha Set to Tour with Diplo's Mad Decent Block Party
While her legal battle with Dr. Luke continues, it has just been confirmed that Kesha is set to tour with Diplo’s Mad Decent Block Party this summer and fall. The traveling festival features artists such as Tiesto, Baauer, AlunaGeorge, DJ Snake, D.R.A.M., Kaskade and dozens of others.
It will make stops in 13 cities this summer, beginning with Fort Lauderdale, Florida and ending in Los Angeles in early October. During the festival, artists such as Boi-1da, Dillon Francis, Flosstradamus, RL Grime, Zeds Dead and others will be involved, as the line-ups change at each stop.
Kesha is set to be involved with three of the stops of this time, in Brooklyn at MCU Park on Aug. 7, in Chicago at FirstMerit Bank Pavilion, and the last date at L.A. Center Studios. A full schedule of the summer event can be found here. Kesha is also slated to perform at Bob Dylan’s birthday celebration in Nashville on May 23 and 24 as reported by Rolling Stone.
Her involvement in the Mad Decent Block Party can be seen as a triumph of sorts, as she has been embroiled in a bitter legal battle with former producer Dr. Luke this year, stretching back into 2015.
Her first foray back into music was a performance with Zedd at his Coachella performance in April, with her new single “True Colors” being released two weeks later, where the EDM heavyweight served as producer.
