Enigmatic singer Janelle Monáe has been added to the lineup for the Long Beach festival Music Tastes Good, organizers announced today.
Monáe is touring in support of her third album, “Dirty Computer,” and performed at the Greek Theatre in June.
In April, the 32-year-old funky-as-hell singer-songwriter, in an interview with Rolling Stone, called herself a “queer black woman” who identifies as pansexual.
Music Tastes Good will take place at Marina Green Park September 29 and 30.
Monáe will perform on day two of the festival, which features James Blake as the headliner. Other musicians on the bill include Australian alt-rockers The Church, the Black Angels, Lizzo, Parquet Courts, Sun Kil Moon, Bill Callahan, Hollie Cook, Hailu Mergia, Ezra Furman, Ladama, and The Blow.
British new wave legends New Order headline September 29. More musicians on that lineup include Canadian indie rock collective Broken Social Scene, Joey Bada$$, Santigold, Lil B, Princess Nokia, Blake Mills, Big Thief, and Cherry Glazerr.
Along with music, food is a headliner at Music Tastes Good. Several guest chefs will cook their favorites dishes. Food vendors and speciality beer and wines also will be on site.
