Outkast to Reunite at Coachella 2014

blame it on Shake November 19, 2013

An Outkast reunion in 2014!? Sign me up! And while we hear stuff like this all the time, Billboard is reporting they’ve heard from key sources that ‘Kast is currently in talks to reunite on stage at 2014’s Coachella Festival (as well as a few other spot dates). Yes, Andre 3000 and Big Boi… On. The. Same. Stage!

The Atlanta hip-hop duo is indeed in talks to reunite next year for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, multiple sources have confirmed to Billboard. Under the current plan, Coachella, which kicks off on Apr. 11, 2014 in Indio, Calif., would be the start of the reunion run and would be followed by additional festival dates in 2014.

One source tells Billboard that there have definitely been “some conversations” about Outkast reuniting, while another says it is “all systems go” for Big Boi and Andre 3000 to end their hiatus next year. A rep for Outkast did not comment for this story, while reps for their current label home, Epic, as well as Coachella organizer Goldenvoice, did not respond to request for comment at press time.

As a proud Outkast stan, I’m hype! If this does indeed go down, I’ll be standing front-row center. Absurd heat and all. UPDATE: Confirmed!

    One of said “spot dates” is allegedly CounterPoint Festival in Atlanta, according to females that know promoters on my Facebook >__>

      I’d rather have just an Outkast show but either way I hope this is true I’ll buy a ticket as soon as its announced.
      Still might fly out to Coachella too

    They’re going to get Big Boi… and an André 3000 hologram.

  • hiphopanon

    i wonder if this means new music is on the way as well? considering my first album ever purchased was southernplayalistic AND i have never had the opportunity to see them rock together LIVE… i would probably spend an arm/leg to watch this go down… even tho i loathe festivals lol

    Well when Dr. Dre said he was doing Coachella, I expected a lot and all I got was a hologram (nothing spectacular & no new music). Don’t get your hopes up – I’m not expecting a reunion or new music this time around. They’ll probably do a show and then disappear again…

    • AmIDickRidingyet

      well the problem here is that you’re expecting unrealistic shit to happen. There was nothing about Dre coming out with new music. The biggest draw was the Tupac hologram anyway. And you somehow look over that as if current technology is already ages ahead of Holograms performing on stage. There’s nothing here saying Outkast is working on music. They’re reuniting on stage. thats it.

      • Mitch

        Yeah I know but that was the perfect time to do something big – This is also but I’m just saying I’m not getting my hopes up unlike I did 2 years ago. Nothing wrong with that

  • man don’t play with me like this. that would make my year. i just want to see them perform one more time and im good to go

    Is this is true, I need tickets asap. Outkast has never failed me once.

  • gorge jung

    Too bad all the shows are going to be arenas adn stadiums making the show itself pointless with soooooo many shitty people. Hit The Fillmore or even the Warfield if yall come to SF.
