OutKast Reveals Details for #ATLast Weekend Shows: Special Guests, Ticket Giveaways
In June OutKast's upcoming three nights at Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta sold out in 24 hours, without any help of details about the what the #ATLast weekend would hold other than homecoming performances by the Southern rap pioneers. Now fans are likely applauding themselves in anticipation of the Sept. 26, 27 and 28 shows, as the rap duo has announced some big name guests that will be joining them, as well as other activities planned for the occasion.
Each night's show will include different supporting acts performing with the six-time Grammy Award winning headliners. Friday, 2 Chainz, Janelle Monáe and Solange will all grace the stage, and the OutKast set will also feature Bun B. On Saturday, sets include Kid Cudi, Childish Gambino and Raury. And on Sunday, the weekend closes with guest B.o.B. as well as what's being billed as the one of the biggest celebrations of southernplayalisticadillacmuzik ever that will include Killer Mike, 8Ball & MJG, Bun B, K Camp, Devin the Dude, Kilo, Gipp Goodie and DJ Unk in a pretty epic Southern rap round up.
Otherwise, Big Boi and André 3000 are teaming with Uber for the opportunity to win last minute tickets and fan packages to each night's show. New and existing Uber riders who apply the code UberOUTKAST in the app will access a special "UberOUTKAST view" and then those requesting a ride while using that view between 12-1:30 p.m. on each day of a show will have a chance to win the prize. As well, Uber will donate $5 to either the Centers of Hope or Big Kidz charities for every person who signs up to and gets a ride with the ridesharing service over the weekend.
Tumblr will also be onhand presenting an "In Real Life" Tumblr IRL art installation on-site at the event, based off fan-submitted designs.
