The music world had not one, not two, but four major announcements when it came to festival lineups today. Just how much good news do they think we can take, seriously? Naturally, with news that Outkast will be reuniting for their 20th anniversary as a band & appearing at over 40 festivals this year, the legendary hip-hop pair will be headlining three out of the four music festivals we've learned the lineup for. Can festival season just get here, already?
Here's the details on the music festivals whose lineups were dropped today:
Hangout Music Festival
Headlined by none other than Outkast, as well as The Black Keys and The Killers, Hangout Music Festival (located on Alabama's gorgeous Gulf Shores) is gearing up to be one of North America's most exciting places to be this spring. Taking place May 16th-18th, you might wanna grab a ticket or two if you wanna see "Roses", "Gold On the Ceiling", or "When You Were Young" live!

The Governors Ball Music Festival
Going down June 6th-8th on Randall's Island in NYC, the famous Governors Ball Music Festival is also drawing out Outkast, as well as Jack White, Vampire Weekend, and The Strokes. Tickets are on sale now, so hurry up and grab some if you're hankering for "Diane Young" and "Last Night" to be live in your ear.
CounterPoint Music & Arts Festival
CounterPoint Music & Arts Festival, based in Rome, Georgia, is a special slot for Outkast since it's in their home state. It'll be on April 25th-27th, and also boasts acts like Foster The People and J. Cole as headliners, so if you want to see the rock group's new single "Coming Of Age" or the young rapper's "Crooked Smile" in person, you'd better grab tickets!
Shaky Knees Festival
Atlanta's Shaky Knees Music Fest is happening May 9th-11th, but with an alt-rock edge to it, it looks like Outkast won't be headlining this one. However, The National and Modest Mouse will be attending the fest, which means that you can see "Fake Empire" and "Dashboard" live and in person if you feel like grabbing a ticket or two.
