Outkast has already pleased fans with their confirmation that they will reunite at the Coachella music festival in April, and now Big Boi and Andre 3000 reveal they're reuniting for over 40 music festival appearances.

Not only will they headline Coachella on its first night for two weekends, but the duo’s new Twitter account reveals they will be celebrating their 20-year anniversary of their debut album with multiple shows.

“Outkast will return to the stage with a full festival run of over 40 dates to celebrate 20 years. #Outkast20 - Team Outkast,” they wrote, adding in a separate tweet “Returning to the stage together is the most exciting way for us to thank everyone for 20 years of supporting Outkast. -Andre 3000 #Outkast20.”

According to Billboard, both Big Boi and Andre 3000 commented on the new festival dates in statements, with Big Boi saying, "It's truly an honor to celebrate 20 years and still be free to do music the way we choose. Don't just think outside the box, know that there is no box. I'm looking forward to rocking the stage with my Bro Ski and to all the fans - stank you smelly much, this is for y'all!"

Andre 3000 added "And imagine, all we wanted to do was rap! I am thankful to have been a part of a group that allowed me to explore anything that came to mind and have fun doing it. Returning to the stage together is the most exciting way for us to thank everyone for their 20 years of supporting Outkast.”
