***UPDATE***

Revolt TV (owned by Sean Combs and Comcast) is reporting that they can now confirm that an Outkast reunion is definitely happening! According to their “tight-lipped” sources, performances will be taking place in 2014 but there are currently no plans for a new album. We’ll take what we can get!

Andre 3000 and Big Boi have been on hiatus as OutKast since 2007 following their 2006 album, Idlewild, but rumors are heating up that the Kast is getting back together for a run of festival performances in 2014 starting with the almighty Coachella in Indio, California.

According to Billboard, close sources have stated that there have been “some conversations” regarding the reunion, while another source claims in a more promising an exciting response that it’s “all systems go.” However, OutKast’s reps have currently not commented on the rumored return.

Billboard states that “under the current plan,” Coachella would be only the beginning of the reunion, as OutKast would continue to perform at more festivals following Coachella which starts on April 11, 2014. “Bombs Over Baghdad” in the desert, anyone?

Based on Coachella’s history of surprise reunions and renowned headliners each year, OutKast’s reformation would come as no surprise. Both Andre 3000 and Big Boi are certianly still active, but no, Frank Ocean’s “Pink Matter” remix didn’t constitute an OutKast reunion, according to Andre.
