SEOUL (AFP) - American pop diva Lady Gaga is slated to perform at a summer music festival in South Korea, where her first show two years ago received an adult-only rating from state censors.

The festival, to be held at Seoul's Olympic stadium on Aug 15 and 16, will feature a host of K-pop stars including Gangnam Style rapper Psy, the YG entertainment agency said.

Lady Gaga will appear on the second day of the festival, to be co-hosted by YG and a local music production agency.

When the 28-year-old singer last performed in Seoul in April 2012, religious groups called for the concert to be cancelled on the grounds that she advocated homosexuality and pornography.
