Outkast’s upcoming return as headliners for the Coachella music festival in April (2014) is only the tip of the iceberg. Antwan “Big Boi” Patton and André "3000" Benjamin will celebrate their 20th anniversary in music by also playing at over 40 other festivals around the world throughout the Spring/Summer of 2014.
“It's truly an honor to celebrate 20 years and still be free to do music the way we choose,” said Big Boi. “Don't just think outside the box, know that there is no box. I'm looking forward to rocking the stage with my Bro Ski and to all the fans – stank you smelly much, this is for y'all!”
André 3000 adds, “And imagine, all we wanted to do was rap! I am thankful to have been a part of a group that allowed me to explore anything that came to mind and have fun doing it. Returning to the stage together is the most exciting way for us to thank everyone for their 20 years of supporting Outkast.”
Outkast’s debut came in 1994 with Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, and they’ve been a force to be reckoned with since. The duo has sold more than 25 million albums and has received numerous awards and accolades.
