This year's Outkast tour will continue to bring Southernplayalisticadillicmusik to the actual Dirty South. Or should we say the Sandy South, since 'Kast will be dropping beachside bombs at Gulf Shores, Alabama's Hangout Festival, which takes place May 16th - 18th. The pair will be sharing the stage with the Black Keys, the Killers, Jack Johnson, Queens of the Stone Age, Pretty Lights, the Flaming Lips, the Avett Brothers, Modest Mouse and many more.
Coming days after announcing that they will be playing their first shows in a decade, including Coachella, Delaware's Firefly Festival, Governor's Ball and Georgia's Counterpoint Festival — Outkast's Hangout gig is the fifth date in a promised 40-date festival run. Hangout hip-hop fans can also look forward to catching Wiz Khalifa, Le1f, emerging Chicago wordsmith Chance the Rapper, and Childish Gambino, who should recreate his "3005" video on the ferris wheel.
Also joining the reliably eclectic fest: EDM heavy hitter Zedd, indie-pop heroes Tegan & Sara, acclaimed jazz-funk show-stopper Trombone Shorty, genre-hopping Chicano-rock icons Los Lobos, and party-starter Andrew W.K. Also this year: A beachside wedding chapel if you crave something that will last a little longer than your suntan.
