Alabama's sun-soaked, sold-out Hangout Music Fest begins officially today (May 16th 2014) following yesterday's kick-off party - and there's almost too much fun to take in.

Set against the glorious backdrop of Gulf Shores' pure white beaches, this festival truly is the place to 'hang out' this weekend with top headliners The Black Keys, The Killers, Outkast and Jack Johnson leading the talent-studded bill. Acts such as Jack Antonoff's latest project Bleachers, CLASSIXX and Bonobo's DJ set went down a storm at the Discover Great Thursday Kickoff Party, but don't worry if you missed it because things are getting even better over the rest of the weekend.

Outkast returned home to Georgia for their stint at CounterPoint Festival 2014 - and fans were a lot more pleased this time round than they were at their comeback gig at Coachella.

Nothing was going to spoil the mood at this year's CounterPoint Festival. With a line-up headlined by one of the world's favourite veteran hip hop duos and also featuring Pretty Lights, Foster The People and STS9, not even the ferocious storm that swept the venue over the weekend engulfing festival goers in streams of mud was going to ruin the experience for anyone.

Coachella Weekend Two: Outkast Pull It Back, Pharrell Brings More Surprise And Arcade Fire Leave Us Confused


Coachella Pharrell Williams Arcade Fire Outkast

The Coachella festival has closed its gates for another year, but not before it got an almighty second weekend send off. Last weekend the festival brought plenty of star performances, special surprises and maybe a slight tinge of disappointment when it came to one of the most anticipated acts. So how did weekend two fare and most importantly were Outkast any better the second time around?

OutkastOutkast had to prove themselves after last weekend's disaster

Last weekend Outkast’s much hyped reunion was met with resounding negativity as poor sound quality and bad production values marred their set. One week later and it seems the duo have learnt from their mistakes as Billboard reports Andre 3000 and Big Boi took to the stage, “strutting with an emboldened confidence light-years from the standoffish attitude that came through the first weekend.”

Next weekend's CounterPoint Festival will be the event's first year at a new 5000-acre site, featuring campgrounds, a food court, bars (including a draught house), carnival rides, free water stations and its very own arts village. Oh, and then there's the music line-up.

CounterPoint Festival

This year's bill is headed by hip-hop stars Outkast, who make their hugely anticipated hometown return. Elsewhere, we'd have to point you in the direction of the blu Freedom Stage on Saturday (April 26, 2014) which boasts a pretty fantastic line-up starting with Wild Cub and St Lucia. As evening approaches, Janelle Monae will take to the stage, followed by J. Cole and headliners Foster the People.

Did Technical Difficulties Fail Outkast During Reunion Gig At Coachella 2014?


Coachella Outkast Andre 3000 Big Boi

Outkast – aka Big Boi and Andre 3000 – reunited for the first time in 10 years at Coachella Saturday night. It was a pretty big deal. The set was broadcast live, so even those unlucky souls who couldn’t shell out for the festival/didn’t feel like traveling for hours to have the three dustiest, most exhausting days of their lives, got to see Outkast perform. The gig generated 90,000 tweets in 24 hours, and by Monday afternoon the recorded set had been viewed more than 1.7 million times, according to NPR.

Andre 3000
Andre's most recent endeavor was playing Jimi Hendrix in a biopic, to be released later this year.

There’s a lot of excitement in the air right now about the reunion, especially since Andre and Big Boi announced their 2014 festival tour. So far the tour includes 18 dates, with 40 gigs promised, but Outkast have made it clear that the reunion is not permanent. The duo are calling it a “victory lap” – a thank you to their loyal fans.

Was Outkast's Comeback At Coachella A Total Disaster?


Outkast Coachella

Outkast made their long awaited comeback at Coachella, topping last night’s bill and making their first stateside performance for 12 years. But with all that expectation came only disappointment, if The Guardian’s review is anything to go by.

Big BoiOutkast's Big Boi poses with fans

“It began promisingly, with what seemed like all 75,000 festival-goers attempting to find their own space to dance in the crowd,” wrote Rebecca Nicholson in a daming, 2-star review. “But that initial excitement at simply seeing Outkast on stage, together – for many of the young spectators, this will have been their first time – quickly ebbed away, and soon with it, the audience.”

Coachella 2014 will be returning to Indio, California, this spring for a two-weekend spectacular that will see some of the world's biggest performers gather in one polo field in the middle of the desert.

Outkast Reforming? 2014 Tour Dates Could Be On Horizon


Outkast Andre 3000

Outkast may be ending their six year hiatus for a performance at California's Coachella in April next year, according to Billboard's multiple sources. One said that there had "definitely been 'some conversations'" between band members Andre 3000, Big Boi and the Coachella organisers, who are said to be keen to reunite the old school band for a comeback.

A comeback in 2014 would certainly be very well timed: the year will mark the 20th anniversary of Outkast's debut album, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, and would be a welcome surprise for fans of such classics as 'Hey Ya' and 'Rosa Parks.'

Army Of Two: B.o.B. And OutKast's Big Boi Lined Up For Shoot 'Em Up


Big Boi B.o.B Outkast Kelly Rowland

Outkast’s Big Boi is adding another string to his bow, by featuring in a videogame, along with his friend and collaborator B.o.B. The two of them will reportedly feature in the Electronic Arts shoot-em-up entitled Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel. It’s the third release in the successful Army of Two franchise.

According to Los Angeles Times, Big Boi will star as Charles “Chuy” Rendall and B.o.B. will be Anthony “Baker” Barnes, both agents, who appear in the game to help players in their quest. Sadly, players won’t be able to control Big Boi and B.o.B’s characters in the main issue of the game but apparently, anyone who pre-orders the game will receive an additional mission in their package, which will allow them to do so. BigBoi and B.oB. have also written the theme tune for the game, entitled ‘Double or Nothing.’

In addition to his foray into the world of video games, Big Boi will also be releasing a new album on December 11. Entitled Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumours, it will be released via Island Def Jam. The single ‘Mama Told Me,’ featuring Kelly Rowland, was described by The Los Angeles Times as “As catchy as a classic Outkast collaboration.” The reviewer added “Mama Told Me' features a Kelly Rowland hook that weaves through a wobbly, melodic rhythm. Big Boi illustrates why he's one of the most mellifluous rappers in hip-hop by offering floating verses that move through the measures like sing-along bouncing balls."

Rumors Of Outkast Rift Are Vicious Lies Says Big Boi, Ahead Of New Album


Big Boi Outkast Andre 3000

Big Boi dropped into MTV Rapfix recently to play down rumors of beef between he and his Outkast band mate Andre 3000, whilst at the same time drawing a line under answering any further questions about whether the legendary rap duo might get back together.

Reports of friction between the two not-always-close pals surfaced again after a recent interview saw Big Boi say that Andre isn’t on his new album Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumours because he’d rather be off shooting razor commercials. However, Big Boi insists that he was just joking. "I was being sarcastic and they took it and ran with it," he told MTV. "It was a vicious misunderstanding, how my man ain't gonna be on my album to do a shaving commercial? Get the f--- outta here."

So things are fine then? "Yeah, for sure, we're good. That's my brother, man. Y'all don't see us. We do us," he said. "So people want an Outkast album so bad they'll stir up somethin' but you can't break that bond." It’s been six years though since the pair’s last album Idlewild, and people are asking when the next will be. Too many people as it turns out. "I ain't gonna answer no more Outkast questions... after today, that's it. This the last one," Big Boi finished. "Until you see me and Dre sit side by side... when you see both of us together then you'll know it's coming."
