Anthony Kiedis’ new festival – Hot Chip, MIA getting married?

MIA chip kiedis

Did you run into any other major problems during the booking?

Anthony Kiedis: For some reason, this is the summer of bands getting married. I ran into that twice. I’m very keen on M.I.A., I think she’s a rocking live performer. She wanted to play, she was very into it and it seemed like a great deal and suddenly she’s getting married. Same with Hot Chip. They have a real groove; they write good songs and have an interesting personality. Except for the fact that they’re getting married. Undone by matrimony, but not really undone. [Rolling Stone]

M.I.A. and Hot Chip are getting married? To each other? To Zach Condon?
