OutKast are reuniting to headline the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April.

The hip hop duo have not performed together for five years.

OutKast join Arcade Fire and Muse as headliners for the festival that plays over two weekends in Indio, California.

Other acts scheduled include Pharrell Williams, Beck, Queens of the Stone Age and Lorde. The reunited The Replacements also will appear.

Andre 'Andre 3000' Benjamin and Antwan 'Big Boi' Patton came out of Atlanta with a unique sound two decades ago and became one of rap's top-selling and most-lauded acts, winning the Grammy Award for album of the year for double album Speakerboxxx/The Love Below. They have not released an album as OutKast since 2006's Idlewild, a soundtrack.
