Outkast to play over 40 festivals this year
Andre 3000 and Big Boi's basically unknown hip hop duo Outkast are already announced for this year's Coachella and Governors Ball festivals, and they've now announced that they'll be performing at over 40 festivals this year. Exact festivals are still TBA, but any guesses on where they might play?
Bonnaroo? Lollapalooza? (yup) SXSW?
UPDATE: They're playing Firefly, Hangout Fest, CounterPoint, Big Guava, Sasquatch, OVO Fest, Forecastle, Osheaga, Lollapalooza, the Denver stop of Mad Decent Block Party, and ACL.
Via Outkast's announcement:
"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!"
"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," said André 3000.
