Coachella’s official line-up surfaced online Wednesday (January 8) night 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.
