Rap duo OutKast will headline the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April, ending a half-decade hiatus for one of hip-hop's most popular and important acts.

OutKast joins Arcade Fire and Muse as headliners for the festival that plays over two weekends in Indio, Calif. Other acts scheduled include Pharrell Williams, Beck, Queens of the Stone Age, and Lorde. The reunited The Replacements will also 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 haven't released an album as OutKast since 2006's "Idlewild," a soundtrack.

The six-day (over two weekends) Coachella music and arts festival began in 1999. The outdoor desert event hosts dozens of performers (featuring various genres including rock, indie, hip-hop, and electronic music) on multiple stages and invites attendees to camp on site.
