OutKast set to reunite in 2014
The hip-hop duo look set to perform 'Hey Ya!' to festival crowds next year
A decade after the hip-hop duo released their chart-topping hit single "Hey Ya!", OutKast are tipped to join the latest string of old-school bands reuniting for a comeback.
Andre 3000 and Big Boi are reportedly planning on breaking their six-year hiatus to play California's Coachella festival in April next year, with Revolt TV confirming the rumours as true.
The reunion would mark the 20th anniversary of their debut album, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik. Further US tour dates would likely follow, but representatives of the band have yet to confirm the rumours.
Both members of OutKast have worked separately over the years, with Big Boi producing part of Modest Mouse's next album and Andre 3000 releasing some LPS to critical acclaim.
There are currently "no plans" for a new album to follow their last, Idlewild, seven years ago, after Andre 3000 dismissed the possibility in a 2010 interview with GQ.
"The only thing I can really say is I'm going to get back to having fun," he told the magazine.
OutKast's news follows several recent reunions of noughties and nineties bands, including All Saints, who will support Backstreet Boys on tour, and the formation of 'supergroup' McBusted - a merging of Busted and McFly.
