Coachella headlined by Muse, Arcade Fire and reunited OutKast


LOS ANGELES — Rap duo OutKast is reuniting to headline the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April, ending a half-decade hiatus for one of hip-hop’s most popular and important acts.

OutKast joins Arcade Fire and Muse as headliners for the festival that plays over two weekends in Indio, Calif. Other acts scheduled include:

  • Pharrell Williams
  • Beck
  • Queens of the Stone Age
  • Lorde
  • Pet Shop Boys
  • Ellie Goulding
  • Skrillex
  • Cage the Elephant
  • Lana Del Rey
  • Motörhead

The reunited The Replacements also will appear.

Andre “Andre 3000” Benjamin and Antwan “Big Boi” Patton came out of Atlanta with a unique sound two decades ago and became one of rap’s top-selling and most-lauded acts, winning the Grammy Award for album of the year for double album “Speakerboxxx/The Love Below.” They have not released an album as OutKast since 2006’s “Idlewild,” a soundtrack.

The festival runs April 11-13 and 18-20. Tickets go on sale Friday, January 10.
