It will be a buzzing November in Mumbai, as pop-star Katy Perry is all set to hold her debut performance in the city of dreams.

The 'Con Calma' hitmaker, on Wednesday, took to Twitter to announce the news. Perry will perform in the city on November 16 as part of the OnePlus Music Festival.

The singer, who has earlier performed in India at the opening ceremony of the Indian Premier League in 2012 in Chennai, tweeted, "I am so happy to be returning to India and excited to headline my first-ever performance in Mumbai. I am looking forward to seeing and singing with all of my Indian KatyCats at the OnePlus Music Festival."


The festival is being described as the merger between "the energy of music and the power of technology to bring out an immersive experience." Curated by smartphone maker OnePlus, it will be held at the DY Patil Stadium.

Perry has had an old connection with India, and had tied the knot with actor-comic Russell Brand in 2010 in a lavish ceremony in Rajasthan. The couple got divorced after two years.
