Is André 3000 and Big Boi’s hiatus coming to an end? After years of rumors, OutKast will reportedly reunite at Coachella next year.
The Atlanta hip-hop duo is in talks to perform at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, multiple sources tell Billboard.
The festival will take place over two weekends on April 11-13 and April 18-20 in Indio, Calif. Following Coachella, they will reportedly play additional festival dates in 2014 as part of their comeback tour.
According to a Billboard source, there have definitely been “some conversations” about OutKast reuniting, while another says it is “all systems go” for André and Big Boi’s reunion.
It’s been seven years since the group’s last joint project, the soundtrack to their film Idlewild.
André 3000 shut down rumors of an OutKast reunion in a 2012 interview with GQ. “There’s been a lot of talk on the Internet about an OutKast album and I have to say that as of now, there are no plans for another OutKast album,” he told the magazine.
In the interim, André filmed the Jimi Hendrix biopic All Is By My Side and has made guest appearances on songs for Frank Ocean, Drake, T.I., and Ke$ha.
Big Boi has released two solo albums including 2010’s Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty and last year’s Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors.
