Funk and hip-hop stars Outkast are making a long-awaited comeback at the 2014 Coachella festival in California.

After weeks of speculation suggesting Andre 3000 and Big Boi were close to reuniting for the desert event, promoters have finally confirmed their return with the announcement of this year's (14) line-up.

The duo has been on hiatus since 2007, and 2014 also marks the 20th anniversary of the group's debut album, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik.

Also headlining the festival are English rockers Muse and Canadian band Arcade Fire.

The bands will take to the stage for two consecutive weekends in April (14).
