Finally! Some news about Azealia Banks that actually has to do with her music. Since becoming Twitter’s Public Enemy #1, Banks has somehow managed to snag a coveted spot in Europe’s Melt! Festival. The festival has been in existence since 1997, and as of late has become one of the major players in EDM fests. VIBE even named it one of the Top 20 International EDM Festivals. So uh, what will Azealia Banks be doing there?

Well, despite some social networking messiness, Azealia has managed to flip the script with mixing rap and electronic-skewed beats, making her something of a festival darling. That should be the perfect companion to Melt!, which will take place in Ferropolis, Germany from July 19th-July 22nd. Banks’ exact show date hasn’t yet been confirmed, but you can catch her repping the “212” sometime during the 3-day festival. After announcing her first single off Yung Rapunxel and having her own remix to the “Harlem Shake,” she’ll have plenty to please the crowd with. Let’s just hope she lays off Twitter until then. She’ll probably want to be invited back, right?

If you don’t catch her there, you can always see her at the Sasquatch! Festival Memorial Day Weekend. So many options.
