OutKast's Big Boi is only adding to the anticipation for fans to see him reunite with group member Andre 3000 after being confirmed to link back together this year at the annual Coachella music festival.

Boi jumped onto his Twitter page to hype up the Coachella announcement and ignite expectations.

"#Outkast #Coachella 2014 !!!! Stay Tuned RT @NicholeGunz: RT @BigBoi: Now you know !!! Stay tuned #Outkast ????," Boi tweeted January 8.
"Stay Tuned to ???? RT @t_o_doubled1: @BigBoi any other venues after that?"
"2 Kings 1 Stage #Outkast RT .@coachella: Share it like a polaroid picture! OutKast, Muse, Arcade Fire + more #Coachella"
"2 ????'s 1 stage RT @RapGenius: 3 words: OUTKAST AT COACHELLA" (Big Boi's Twitter)

Mega producer Pharrell Williams also acknowledged OutKast highlighting Coachella's 2014 line-up.

The annual festival's official line-up surfaced online last night (January 8) and confirmed OutKast's presence.

The long-anticipated reunion of OutKast was made official on Wednesday as organisers of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival released this year's lineup of acts. The Atlanta hip-hop duo consisting of Andre 3000 and Big Boi will hit the Coachella stage at the Empire Polo Fields in Indio, California after a seven-year hiatus. 'Share it like a polaroid picture! OutKast, Muse, Arcade Fire + more #Coachella,' organizers of the annual music festival tweeted with a reference to Hey Ya! from OutKast's 2003 double album. More than 150 acts, from ASAP Ferg to ZZ Ward, were included in the lineups for the music festival that will holds its first weekend of performances from April 11 to 13 and its second weekend from April 18 to 20.

Recently, OutKast affiliate Rico Wade confirmed an OutKast reunion would go down at the event.

Rico also happens to be Future's older cousin, which is how Future ended up with "DUNGEON" tattooed on his right forearm and "FAMILY" on his left. "I put Future in the studio for the first time," Rico explains, eager to shed light on his own under-recognized legacy. As we bide our time in the lobby, he affably spills the beans about unreleased Andre 3000 solo songs from a decade ago and his hopes to score Future a cameo during OutKast's reunion sets at Coachella. Eventually he pulls out his iPhone and plays me a Future/Andre collaboration he produced called "Benz B*tch" that's earmarked for Honest. It's yet another side of Future and one rarely heard: brainy, libidinous space-age funk mined from Stankonia's dankest caverns, an homage to his Dungeon Family roots. (Stereo Gum)
