Outkast to play 40 festivals this summer

outkast logoIn case you missed the news last week, Outkast fully confirmed the rumors of their return with announcements that they’ll be headlining Coachella and Governor’s Ball. Today they dropped even bigger news: they’ll be extending those headlining slots to 38 other music festivals around the world.

The band launched Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages today to celebrate the news.

Ingenious and iconic recording artists and performers, Antwan “Big Boi” Patton and André “3000” Benjamin today announced via Outkast’s social media platforms that their return to the stage celebrating their 20th anniversary will include festival dates around the world. After headlining performances at Coachella in April, the influential group will be the marquee act at over 40 festivals around the world throughout the Spring/Summer of 2014 (dates to be announced).

Translation: buy tickets to your nearest “big” music festival as soon as possible so that you don’t miss this reunion tour. We’re thinking it’s going to be a good one, folks.
