Outkast reunites to headline Coachella music festival in April, 2014

New, 24 comments

Grammy award-winning hip hop group Outkast will reunite to headline the Coachella music festival in April of this year, Pitchfork reports. The duo, composed of André 3000 and Big Boi, separated in 2007 to pursue solo careers. Big Boi went on to release the critically acclaimed album Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, while André 3000 went on to launch a clothing line, act in several films, and appear on tracks from the likes of Beyonce, Frank Ocean, and T.I.

Post-Coachella, it's unclear if Outkast plan to play a few more dates as previously reported, or to take another hiatus. The pair have always had their differences, after all, but have found creative ways to work through them. 2003's Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, was in fact two solo albums marketed together, and not as a conventional double album.
