Outkast reunite, headline Coachella festival

By

Outkast reunited onstage after a near decadelong hiatus with a jam-packed set at the Coachella music festival, their first of many performances planned this year.

The rap duo headlined the first night of the festival Friday in Indio, Calif., performing well-known hits such as "Hey Ya!" and "Ms. Jackson."

They performed two dozen tracks — seen via its livestream on YouTube — as they celebrated 20 years in music since the release of their 1994 debut, "Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik."

It marks the duo's reunion since releasing their last album, 2006's "Idlewild." That came three years after the diamond-selling, Grammy-winning "Speakerboxxx/The Love Below."

Other performers Friday at Coachella, which plays over two weekends, included Broken Bells, Ellie Goulding, Zedd and Girl Talk. Muse and Arcade Fire will headline Saturday and Sunday.
