We’ve been hearing rumors of an OutKast reunion for years, but it seemed more hype than truth. In February, Big Boi told Vibe, “Until y’all see us sitting together, don’t ask me about no OutKast.” Then rumors of an André 3000 solo album cast a shadow of doubt on reunion plans, but last night the Coachella lineup was announced, and guess who’s headlining… yep, OutKast.
The news of André and Big Boi together again was enough reason for celebration, but today we get another piece of news: OutKast will also be headlining this year’s Governors Ball. The festival goes down June 6 – 8 at Randall’s Island Park in New York. Over 80 other artists will be in the lineup and announced next week, but Rolling Stone confirms that OutKast will a headliner.
Who else will be there? No word yet, but the official Governors Ball Twitter account sent this out, so we shall see. 2Pac hologram/Biggie hologram collaboration? Hm….
They’ve also tweeted the picture below, which is River Phoenix’s family, which means Phoenix is probably another act set to perform.
