OutKast Reunite To Headline Coachella Festival

Hip-hop duo OutKast will reunite for the first time since their last album eight years ago to headline the Coachella Festival.

The event plays over two weekends in April in the Southern California desert town of Indio, with Arcade Fire and Muse headlining the other dates.

Organisers announced the line-up on Twitter, referring to the hit OutKast song Hey Ya! with the post: "Share it like a Polaroid picture!"

The annual music event has become one of the largest US music festivals, attracting more than 80,000 people, including many Hollywood celebrities.

Grammy-winning OutKast, which consists of Atlanta rappers Andre 3000 (Andre Benjamin) and Big Boi (Antwan Patton), released their last album Idlewild in 2006.

The line-up for the Coachella Festival also includes Pharrell Williams, Beck, Ellie Goulding, Haim, Lorde and Motorhead.

The event takes place on the weekends of April 11-13 and 18-20.
