Matt And Kim announced a few more festivals this week, including the Keloha Music & Arts Festival in Kelowna, British Columbia, and Los Angeles‘ Mad Decent Block Party Sept. 14.  However, some festival dates have yet to be nailed down if only because promoters haven’t announced daily schedules, such as the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Del., scheduled for June 21-23 and San Francisco’s Outside Lands set for Aug. 9-11.

While Bonnaroo organizers announced that Matt And Kim will play the festival June 15, the Brooklyn twosome of Matt Johnson and Kim Schifino are also listing a June 14 date at the festival under the name “Cinema Tent Presents: Matt And Kim ‘How To Make A Fun Music Video.’”

Johnson and Schifino are up for an American Association Of Independent Music (A2IM) Libera Award, co-presented by Caroline.  With ceremonies scheduled for June 20 at New York City’s Highline Ballroom, keyboardist Matt and drummer Kim are nominated for a “Libby” alongside Alabama Shakes, Awolnation, Bloc Party, Ra Ra Riot, Delta Spirit, Hatebreed and M83.
