Other artists who will be playing on both days include Janelle Monae, Spank Rock, Das Racist, Skindred, Toro Y Moi, Reggie Watts, The Memorials, Bad Rabbits, Gordon Voidwell, The London Souls, Cerebral Ballzy, Phony People and Body Language. More acts are expected to be added.

Back in February, Badu was banned from performing in Malaysia due to a photo which showed the word "Allah" written on Badu's bare shoulders in Arabic.

The photo was met with outrage from the predominantly Muslim nation.

In 2010, the neo-soul singer pleaded not guilty to a charge of disorderly conduct after stripping nude in public for her 'Window Seat' music video.
