Outkast May Reunite at 2014 Coachella

Big Boi and Andre 3000 haven’t made a full-length album together since 2004s Speakerboxx/A Love Below went Platinum eleven times over, becoming one of the most successful commercial and artistic triumphs in the post record label-driven music landscape. Since then, the pair made one project together, Idlewild, based off the movie both appeared in.

After all this down time, though, OutKast may be heating back up. On the heels of an XXL article about Speakerboxx/A Love Below, which turns ten this year, Billboard is reporting that OutKast is allegedly in talk to play at the 2014 Coachella Festival in Indio, California. Adding to the rumors are a Sleepy Brown Instagram photo that alludes to the pair re-uniting at the annual festival. Whispers also are reporting that the pair may make a run of several festivals throughout 2014.

Coachella has long made a name for itself as the quintessential place to get back together, having brought together the likes of Big Audio Dynamite, Faith No More, Iggy and the Stooges, the Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, Pavement, The Pixies, Rage Against the Machine and Siouxsie & the Banshees, as well as the Tupac hologram on their stage since beginning 1999.
