Her latest show to be announced: the 2016 Music Midtown Festival in Atlanta. The singer will join a long list of talent set to perform at the annual festival, scheduled for Sept. 17 – 18 at Piedmont Park. The Killers, Twenty One Pilots, Beck and Deadmau5 will headline the fest, while acts including Alabama Shakes, James Bay, Leon Bridges, DNCE, Corinne Bailey Rae and more will also take the stage over the weekend. Earlier this month, Wynn Las Vegas announced Kesha would headline a three-night residency inside its Intrigue Nightclub; in May, she hit the Billboard Music Awards stage for a moving Bob Dylan cover; and in April, she made a surprise cameo during deejay-producer Zedd’s Coachella set. But aside from those appearances – and spare private events, like a performance at the Delete Blood Cancer charity gala in N.Y.C. last year – Kesha has played live few times in the past couple years, during which she’s been embroiled in a nasty lawsuit.

The singer has said the lawsuit is about reclaiming her voice, and after her BBMAs performance was nearly canceled because of the ongoing litigation, friend and collaborator Ben Folds says music is still Kesha’s priority. “It wasn’t about drama – it was just about music and just about a beautiful song,” he told PEOPLE after the awards. “She’s dealing with it the way a real artist deals with it, which is through her art,” Folds added.
