Katy Perry will play her first-ever show in Mumbai, India, for her headlining slot at the OnePlus Music Festival on Nov. 16.

“I am so happy to be returning to India and excited to headline my first-ever performance in Mumbai,” Perry posted on social media. “I am looking forward to seeing and singing with all of my Indian KatyCats at the OnePlus Music Festival.”

Perry is the first headliner announced for the debut festival hosted by tech company OnePlus. The single-day event is set to take place at Mumbai’s DY Patil Stadium with more artists expected to be announced shortly.

OnePlus first teased the festival in July promising a “celebration of music and community.”

“We are super excited that Katy Perry will be starring in our first-ever OnePlus Music Festival in India!” said co-founder of OnePlus Carl Pei in a statement. “We decided to host this festival to share our passion for music with our community, who are at the heart of everything we do. With Katy on board, this is sure to be a one of a kind experience.”

The festival will be the second time Perry has performed in India. Back in 2012, the pop star took the stage at the opening ceremony of the Indian Premier League in Chennai.
