With 42 days still left in 2013, is it too early to start the Coachella rumor wagon for 2014? Trick question. It’s never too early to start guessing the desert festival’s epic line-up. Billboard.com is kicking off the headliner rumors with Outkast being at the top of their list.
It also looks like this could be more than just a rumor. Sources are saying the Atlanta duo are “in talks to reunite” for next year’s festival as well as other dates.
“One source tells Billboard that there have definitely been “some conversations” about Outkast reuniting, while another says it is “all systems go” for Big Boi and André 3000 to end their hiatus next year. A rep for Outkast did not comment for this story, while reps for their current label home, Epic, as well as Coachella organizer Goldenvoice, did not respond to request for comment at press time.”
2014 would mark the 20th anniversary of their debut album, and almost a decade since they’ve done anything together, so a return to the main stage would make sense.
