Coachella 2014 Lineup Announced: Outkast, Arcade Fire, Muse Headlining
With a tweet suggesting fans "share it like a polaroid picture," the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival sent out this year's highly anticipated lineup late on Wednesday. As previously reported, long-dormant rap duo Outkast will reunite at the Goldenvoice-organized gathering, being held over two weekends April 11-13 and April 18-20 in Indio, Calif.
Outkast will headline on Friday April 11 and 18; Muse on Saturday April 12 and 19; and Arcade Fire on Sunday April 13 and 20. Other major names include Queens of the Stone Age, Beck, Lorde, HAIM, Ellie Goulding, Pet Shop Boys, The Replacements, Skrillex, Calvin Harris, Neutral Milk Hotel, Lana Del Rey, MGMT, and a previously announced set by rock legends Motorhead.
Some of the many fine-print highlights include Solange, ZZ Ward, Blood Orange, AlunaGeorge and John Newman, along with noted veteran acts Dismemberment Plan, Superchunk, Fishbone, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
But the buzz around the Empire Polo Club come April will surely have a lot to do with Andre "Andre 3000" Benjamin and Antwan "Big Boi" Patton, who put their Grammy-winning duo on hiatus in 2007 after scoring hits like "Ms Jackson," "So Fresh, So Clean" and "Hey Ya!".
Over the course of its 14-year run, Coachella has hosted numerous memorable artist reunions, from the Pixies in 2004 to Rage Against The Machine in 2007 to Pavement in 2010. Last year's headliners included the Stone Roses and Blur, who made Coachella's two weekends their only U.S. dates of their recent reunion runs.
