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!
