mia2.jpgThe summer festival season is nearing a close, but not without a GALANG, After indie Sri Lankan hip-hopper M.I.A. got kicked off stage at Scottland’s 2007 Connect Festival this past weekend, and thanks to YouTube (and the person actually taping) we’ve got footage!


Here’s what we hear happend: M.I.A. invited an equally colorful and energetic festival crowd on stage to be her back-up dancers during her new single “Bird Flu” off her recently released album Kala, only to be kicked off stage mid-set by ____ (we’re still unsure of who, officially, pulled the plug).

“I didn’t walk off. I got chucked off,” says M.I.A. on her MySpace blog. “You were worth getting kicked off for.”
