Singer-songwriter Lauryn Hill will be performing in Calgary this summer as part of the One Love music festival.

The festival will be held at the Max Bell Centre festival grounds on Aug. 4.

In 2015 and 2016, One Love was held in September, but organizers said it was moved to August to allow for closer alignment with the Chasing Summer dance music festival, which takes place on Aug. 5 and 6.

Organizers are also selling One Love / Chasing Summer ticket combinations which will allow purchasers to attend both music festivals.
