Missy Elliott will be making another rare stage appearance this summer at the FYF Fest in Los Angeles.

Missy will be headlining a line-up that includes Frank Ocean, Solange, A Tribe Called Quest, Erykah Badu, Run The Jewels, Flying Lotus, Thundercat, Kehlani and more.

Missy has fallen back from performing and producing in recent years after she was diagnosed with Grave’s Disease. She has done spot dates and various international festivals but it wasn’t until she came out as Katy Perry’s surprise guest at the 2015 Super Bowl halftime show that she was “back.”

Many outlets are incorrectly stating that this will Missy’s first solo performance on U.S. soil in almost a decade. Wrong. She performed at Essence Fest in 2015. Guess that’s not on the mainstream’s radar.

Missy is also at work on her first solo album since 2005. Check out the entire FYF fest line-up below.
