OutKast to Headline Gov Ball
OutKast will headline the fourth-annual Governors Ball. The eclectic music festival will return to New York’s Randall’s Island from June 6-8. The hugely successful hip-hop group have not performed in New York in a decade. Big Boi, one half of the duo, performed at the inaugural Gov Ball in 2011. Governors Ball plans to announce the rest of its lineup via social media channels in the coming days. Kings of Leon, Kanye West and Guns ‘N Roses headlined Gov Ball in 2013.
The announcement comes shortly after Coachella confirmed the reactivated Outkast would co-headline the festival this April.
The appearances confirmed rumors that the duo would reunite in 2014. Other confirmed Coachella acts include: Arcade Fire, Muse, Foster the People, Beck, The Head & the Heart, Haim, Big Gigantic, Girl Talk, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Trombone Shorty, MGMT, Chromeo and The Glitch Mob, among others. The Replacements and Neutral Milk Hotel will also play reunion shows at the fest.
