M.I.A. takes Amy Winehouse’s place on the Coachella lineup

MIA @ the Diesel party in NYC (more by Kyle Dean ReinforD)

“Sri Lankan pop sensation M.I.A. has been added to the Coachella festival’s Saturday night lineup, the event’s producers announced today via their Twitter feed. M.I.A. replaces Amy Winehouse, who was forced to cancel her appearance earlier this month due to an assault charge in the U.K.

Coachella will mark the rapper/singer’s first public appearance since the birth of her son last month and her performance of “Paper Planes” with Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Lil Wayne at the Grammy Awards in February.

M.I.A. joins other late additions to the Coachella bill including Devendra Banhart, the Orb, Chemical Bros., Murder City Devils and Etienne de Crecy.” [Billboard] (thx Tye)
