A week ago Coachella released their 2014 lineup with the “Player’s Ball” duo OutKast headlining the first night of the festival on April 11th. For ATLien fans, the news of the hip-hop duo reuniting was enough to make you pack your bags up and make the 29-hour drive to Indio, California (yes, I looked this up on Google directions and may or may not have considered it).
Following the news that Andre 3000 and Big Boi were reuniting 20 years after their debut album Southernplayalisticadillacmuzikreleased in 1992, many music festivals worldwide began releasing their lineups and Outkast was nearly first on the list for every festival from Delaware to Alabama.
On Monday, Rolling Stones confirmed that OutKast booked 40 festival dates for 2014. Outkast was welcomed to the Twitter and Instagram world, where fans can follow for information on the reunion. Needless to say, OutKast is the talk around the world this week.Big Boi has been updating his Twitter with information, too.
With only a few festivals of the 40 booked being confirmed so far, my question is – “Will OutKast be at Forecastle?” With the Forecastle lineup being announced next month, Louisvillians are anxious to find out if we can save the trip and enjoy the reunion in our own backyard. Check out their Twitter for updates and the lineup.
Do you think that OutKast booked Forecastle as one of the 40 music festivals they are performing at this Spring/Summer?
