We’ve been down (and driven our car off) this road before: a group that hasn’t been together in years is going to reunite for a major music festival, usually Coachella. The number of Google results for “the smiths coachella” is equally to the number of Chinese people Morrissey thinks are “subspecies.” But maybe if we pray hard enough, this time it will come true, because according to Billboard, the group in question for Coachella 2014 is Outkast.
The Atlanta hip-hop duo is indeed in talks to reunite next year for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, multiple sources have confirmed to Billboard. Under the current plan, Coachella, which kicks off on Apr. 11, 2014 in Indio, Calif., would be the start of the reunion run and would be followed by additional festival dates in 2014.
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 Andre 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.

If it doesn’t happen in 2014, I’ve got a good feeling about 2091.
