These acts join already announced performances by Angels & Airwaves, Girl Talk, Matt & Kim, OK Go and Say Anything.
Ke$ha has been all over the place in the last few months since her song “Tik Tok” started hitting the top of the charts and her debut album Animal knocked Susan Boyle from her #1 spot on the Billboard 200. In addition to Bamboozle, she’s also performing at the revived Lilith Fair this summer.
“I definitely will bring the glitter, and I think I can also bring a youthful fun, like a strong woman but in just a kind of a fun way to Lilith,” Ke$ha told MTV News of joining the girl-powered fest, which will also include founder Sarah McLachlan, Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Colbie Caillat and Corinne Bailey Rae. “I think I’m on Lilith because it’s famous for standing for women and strong women, and I’m really excited and honored to be in that group and classified as a strong female woman.”
