For those who couldn’t (or don’t want to) drop their rent check on tickets to
be stuck in the desert all weekend Coachella, have no fear: Big Boi and Andre 3000 will also be the main draw for this year’s Governors Ball on Randall Island in New York.
Says Rolling Stone:
OutKast will make their first New York appearance in over a decade when they headline the Governors Ball this spring. A rep for the fest, which will take place from June 6th to June 8th at New York City’s Randall’s Island Park, confirmed the news exclusively to Rolling Stone today. Following last night’s news that Andre 3000 and Big Boi would be playing Coachella in April, it’s the second announcement of a major reunion appearance for the group this year.
While there are plans to unveil the rest of the Governors Ball lineup in the coming days (PLEASE, NO HOLOGRAM MUSICIANS THIS YEAR), it’s a safe bet that this is the only news most of us (especially Shake) cares to know.
