No M.I.A. in the U.S.A.

M.I.A. was set to play this weekend's Sasquatch festival in Washington, but the fest has announced that "unexpected delays" in the processing of the Sri Lanka/London MC's artist visa has forced her to cancel.

M.I.A.'s set on the first day of the two-day festival was likely to be one of the more compelling, with her new album allegedly coming out this summer. She has no other shows planned until Lollapalooza in August.

M.I.A. -- Bird Flu (MP3)

Obviously, Arcade Fire, Bjork, Neko Case, Hold Steady, Grizzly Bear, The Blow and Viva Voce will pick up the slack Saturday, but M.I.A. was going to add variety to the mostly straight-up indie rock bill
