Outkast is way too big for a tent, and their music is not dancey enough. They better play mainstage, and play all their old shit.

Yes please.

Main stage will be fine.

Would they have a full band? We think the Dap Kings would be fun.

Absolutely nothing from Idlewild please.

There are literally tons of artists bigger than Outkast. They are not one of the best selling artists of all time; they are one of the best selling hip-hop artists of all time. Big difference.

if outkast played with a live band as well as a DJ it would be sick, their songs lend themselves well to live instrumentation it seems, lots of live singing and soul flavor, as long as the energy is their with it would be great IMO

Here's an article about Moby's Area:One Festival in 2001

ALEX HOWBERT /Daily
Paul Wong

Anything that isn"t "NSYNC, or one of the other purveyors of pre-pubescent pop, is seemingly labeled alternative but alternative can be extremely popular. In what may have been the most acceptably hip "alternative" concert of the summer, Area: One parked its traveling circus of electronica, hip hop, rock and pop within the confines of DTE for a sold-out show last Tuesday.

Area: One, the phoenix rising from the ashes of its defunct festival predecessors, may be of the same genus as H.O.R.D.E, Lillith Fair and Lollapalooza, but certainly is its own species. While hordes of hippies happily hacked at H.O.R.D.E, loads of ladies loved the Lillith Fair and gaggles of greasy grungers grunted gratefully for Lollapalooza, Area: One exudes electronica. While the bike rack fences and long lines resembled the wait in front of the Millennium Force, Cedar Point has never seen a dance party the likes of the one the Ford Focus tent hosted. The tent housed DJs Carl Cox and Paul Okenfold among others, along with the eye candy of psychedelic spider webs on large TV screens and of course a slew of rabid ravers. The air conditioned tent provided a welcome break from the sweltering sun and the main stage.

The action on the main stage kicked off at 3:50 p.m. Nelly Furtado performed to a sparsely populated pavilion as many fans were still lined up outside waiting to get in. Furtado became the most familiar face of the day making multiple appearances, guesting on the Roots track "You Got Me" and filling in quite admirably for Gwen Stefani on Moby"s hit single "South Side." Her radiant smile and ebullient performance started off the show on the right foot.

The Roots took the stage next and thoroughly impressed the still paltry crowd. The group is well known for its live performances and much respected for their musicianship. It is rare for a rap group to have a backing band, but The Roots forego canned booty bass mixes in favor of their supertight band. Perhaps the most impressive part of the set was Roots member Scratch. In the middle of a festival which featured many expert turntable-ists, Scratch outperformed many of them without the turntables. Eyes scanned the stage looking for the hidden DJ, but rest assured there was none Scratch the human turntable put the finishing touches on a great set by The Roots.

The momentum was building and Incubus was not about to drop the ball. Lead singer Brandon Boyd was the focal point of the show with his disjointed movements and powerful voice. Boyd even donned a drum for a few select tunes and added to the already powerful percussive force of Jose Pasillas. Boyd"s staccato delivery on the verses of "Pardon Me" and "Stellar," along with the soothing yet powerful drone of "Drive" and "Miss You," propelled the band"s set and likely will propel them into the mainstream.

Outkast took the stage next then stole the show. The Stankonians from Atlanta had no trouble working the crowd into a raucous dance frenzy. Both the pavilion and lawn were getting down to the bootylicious grooves of Outkast"s hits. Not one booty rested during the set and many rapped along, which is no easy feat. The band rolled out familiar tunes such as "Elevators (Me And You)," "Rosa Parks," "Ms. Jackson" and "So Fresh, So Clean," and finished off their set, to the delight of everyone"s collectively quaking booty, with a song they described as "Hip Hop on crack," the favorite "B.O.B. (Bombs Over Baghdad)."

After Outkast left the stage, everyone was left to swim in pools of their own sweat which had gradually accumulated over the day. DTE felt like the bayou because of the unbearable humidity and like Texas for the forceful, unforgiving rays of the sun. Those without the funds to fend off dehydration ($3.50 for 20 oz. of water) were left to slump in their chair after expending their last few electrolytes for Outkast.

For many, the festival was long over by the time Moby took the stage. While Moby may have put the festival together, his guests (the opening acts) enjoyed the fruits of his labor. Many fans left before Moby walked on stage and more piled out at the end of each song. Moby ran back and forth across the stage playing a few notes on a keyboard and striking electronic drums, while occasionally stepping in front of a microphone to yell a few words. Although Moby writes his own music, his role in the live performance seems quite miniscule leaving his group without a real frontman. His music and performance style seem well suited for a dance hall, but not so well suited for DTE. While Moby may have named it Area: One before the show, fans will remember the show as Area: Outkast.




Here's another one from MTV



COLUMBIA, Maryland — Moby's Area:One festival is a rave, a carnival, a rock concert and a parade of the latest in halter tops and sun visors all rolled into one sweaty, heart-pounding $36.50 package.

The tour made its second stop Friday at Merriweather Post Pavilion, a place so pastoral and idyllic it seemed an unlikely spot for a rowdy 10-act rock, hip-hop and electronica show that would unfold over nine-and-a-half hours. (Click here for photos from the show.)

The gates opened under warm, sunny skies at 1:30 p.m. By 2 p.m., DJ Jon Tab was spinning inside an air-conditioned dance tent in a far corner of the pavilion. Outside the tent, muffled bass beats lured concertgoers to explore what was inside. "I didn't know it was going to be this cool," 16-year-old Jim Werner of Fairfax, Virginia, yelled over the thumping of the music inside the tent.

"I feel like I've already gotten my money's worth," he said, looking up at the complex lighting system and two overhead screens that were flashing images of scantly clad women and city scapes. It was the scene of an underground rave, if not for the blatant sponsor logos everywhere and Intel's Digital Music Zone set up 50 yards away.

An hour-and-a-half later, Tab and Rinerse had already finished their sets in the tent, and by 3:30 p.m. Lieven was about to take over as DJ.

Just before 4 p.m., Canada's Nelly Furtado, the first of the main stage acts, opened her 40-minute set to a mid-sized audience on the pavilion's main stage. She charmed listeners with whimsical moves and the dancehall/dub influences that were laced in and out of her set, which included her hit "I'm Like a Bird."

Immediately following her show, DJ Carl Cox was up inside the tent. Scheduled to perform for two hours, Cox's hypnotic, three-decks mixing style was like a mating call to the show's teens looking to dance. Cox raised the stakes and worked the crowd of more than 2,000 into a frenzy. Light sticks distributed by representatives from festival sponsor Intel swirled with the beats as the place became more packed by the second.

Outside, the Roots, followed by California funk-metal outfit Incubus, played to a swelling and increasingly more interested crowd, which rose to its feet when Incubus played its radio hit "Pardon Me."

With pop, rock and hip-hop all heard by 7:30 p.m., it seemed as though Moby's goal for the festival — exposing the music that he loves while creating an eclectic and fun atmosphere — had been met even without the headlining performance. And then came the show's apex, one act early. A little after 7:30 p.m., Outkast began a set that brought a previously scattered crowd of all ages and races together into one arm-waving mass. The Georgia duo had as many as 14 people onstage at once dancing and singing. The duo played the early hit "Elevators (Me & You)" and had most of Merriweather singing the chorus to "So Fresh, So Clean."

So wait, only 2 people in this thread have ever seen Outkast live?

I'm a fan, and I would check them out if they were on the bill. I wouldn't, however, buy tickets to see them on their own tour. I feel it would be like seeing Gnarls Barkley, just a bunch of dummies standing around, waiting to hear the hit song they know from the radio.

WhyTheLongFace
04-30-2009, 04:10 PM
Comparing Outkast to Gnarls is unfair.

One because Outkast has 5 albums (2 if you count double disc) and a soundtrack, so they can actually do a whole set of their hits and it be amazing. Where as Gnarls really only has 2 commercial hits if that. So you'd have dummies sitting around for 12/14 of the songs.


All I know is if they go on tour I will see them and whatever festival gets them first will be a lucky festival so of course I'm going to hope it's Coachella. But also I dont think they will tour until this album done. They said to expect an outkast album this year plus solo projects from both so let's hope that's true and they don't bust a Dr. Dre "Detox" and have us waiting til 2015.

http://www.satriani.com/gallery/2006-04_tour/celebrity.jpg

and yes, the stage was spinning for the duration of their performance.



I think any true Outkast fan feels that almost every one of their songs is a hit in its one way. They are on the level where it's hard to keep the same song as your favorite continually. Some other gem always grabs you and sucks you right in.

To me they are pretty much the Radiohead of hip hop and Aquemini = OK Computer.

^ Holy Shit that's cool.

And concerning touring after their next album, don't hold your breath. Outkast hate touring (mostly andre 3000 i think) which is why even after a couple albums they haven't toured in a while

I don't know about hate touring but before S/LB They toured a lot but then again I haven't read all their interviews so he might have said that in there. But After that album only Big Boi toured and that was a big thing cause after going Diamond everyone expected an Outkast world tour. Then they had no reason to tour with no album. Yeah Idlewild but you don't tour for a soundtrack. And Big Boi is going to be at RTB so all we that is needed is 3 Stacks on deck.

yeah,i dont know why Outkast is being touted as such a great act-outside of this forum,ive never heard much hype about their live set...

Afrika Bambaataa-now that would be a real classic Hip-Hop set...whatcha got on The Godfather of Hip-Hop?


...and the Tool/Rage fan hatred is an obvious oversimplification thats the result of vindictive reasoning-and doesnt apply to all of the bands devout fans,respectively(isnt hating on all-things metal a trend?)-unless,(of course)youve managed to interact with or have been in close proximity to every Tool/Rage fan at Coachella and abroad:rolleyes

a. its cause they never toured when they really got big

b. nobody is saying all tool/rage fans suck just that they bring in as a whole a really shitty crowd cause they do. I muched preferred the vibe of 08 and 09 then the vibe of 06 (booing Massive Attack) and 07 (throwing shit at Crowded House) are just examples overall 08 and 09 was much more chill.

I don't know why people are so sure Outkast would be a great live show. Has anybody actually seen them? Live hip hop usually disappoints.


I've seen them live. I saw them in Albuquerque at Sunshine Theatre when Aquemini came out and yes they play with a live band. And it was the best hip hop show I've ever seen in my life. It was so live in the place that the walls appeared to be sweating. They toured with Black Eyed Peas (before fergie became a cancer) when Joints and Jams was hot. They put on a good show too. Please bring Outkast. Leave the Peas at home though.

EDIT: Outkast is a main stage headliner. If Blackstar can headline the main stage then Outkast should close out the festival on Sunday.

Actually it could go either way. Depends on what genre of music you are into the most. Coachella isn't catered to one specific genre. So hip hop heads probably thought differently. I listen to both so I thought of both equally but enjoyed Blackstar set better so to me they were the headliner. ANY concert I've ever been to (excluding djs) the person playing last is the headliner. Just because a bands name is printed bigger on a lineup or your in your mind that band is better than another does not make them any bigger or more worthy of that headliner title. I'm pretty damn sure the candy kids raving real hard to Tiesto on the mainstage thought that he was the headliner in their minds that's if they were able to pull themselves away from the sahara. I've never gone to coachella to see The Cure, Depeche Mode, Coldplay, and alot of those big bold lineup names. Maybe went by to check them out but thats it. RATM, Roger Waters, RHCP, and a few others aren't included because they were must sees. Not everyone has to look at the festival through your eyes.

headliner is reffering to the big name on the flyer. u can headline but not close. the thing about closing is that,...well, your closing. duh. hence, you are opening for the closer if you are not closing. thats why sometimes the opener blows the closer/headliner outta the water, which imo is why i love music. it always gets better and on any given day, one artist may outperform another.

^^^Werd to that ^^^

In general, it is harder for a hip-hop show to put on a good preformance, but it can be done. It mostly revolves around the artist on stage having energy. Anyone can just speak into a mic. A good hip-hop show can be done though, as long as the crowd has energy (which at coachella shouldnt be much of a problem) and the artist knows how to channel it back.

Tech N9ne is a perfect example of this. Although I think his music kind of sucks, I was blown away by his live show. This fool goes beyond just putting on a show, he puts on a whole performance. By the end of his set, when he asked, all these fine girls in the crowd flashed everyone their titties. If that is not a sign of a successful show, I dont know what is.

Word. Arcade Fire being fantastic or not, I think of the fan bases of both Outkast and Arcade Fire, and Outkast's is just massively broader in scope. It doesn't matter if you're into rap, or metal, or indie, whenever Ms. Jackson comes on at a party everyone will drunkenly join together to sing along. That's the kind of headliner to look for, someone that'll bring the love and everyone together at a huge epic main stage. Arcade Fire can have a beautiful closing set at the Outdoor (they do only have two albums after all, lets get realistic here they aren't deities), and Outkast can bring the spectacle at the main.

They played the Hollywood bowl in 2007 correct? The Hollywood Bowl holds nearly 18K people. They sold about 13K tickets according to the NME review.

It did not sell out the Hollywood Bowl. They played maybe a couple other arenas in the states and i'm willing to bet they didn't sell those out either. They sell out multiple nights in theaters. On their best day they aren't selling as many tickets in the states as the Killers or Jack Johnson who are considered the weakest headliners we have had.

Im not trying to discredit Big Boi or Andre in any way shape or form. I respect them to the upmost as artists and performers. If you look at the first page of this thread you find me w/ a completely different point of veiw last april, but now that ive thought about it no way.

Personaly i dont think GV/COACHELLA would take a gamble on a hiphop artist as a headliner, other than someone who has performed before (ahem Beastie Boys)

On top of that i truely dont bellieve Outkast has the kind of Worlwide appeal that they once did. Yeah sure theyre huge here in the states but lets not forget the entire demographic that makes up[ COACHELLA

And on top of all that.... Andre and Big Boi are far too busy doing anything but their own solo missions at the moment.

http://www.freep.com/article/20091210/ENT04/912100316/1039/Ent04/Rapping-with-hip-hop-funk-artist-Big-Boi

I wont say that Outkast wont ever play COACHELLA, cause your right i have no dictation on who does or doesnt, who will who wont....

AND BECAUSE ILL ADMIT WHEN IM WRONG ILL SAY THIS......

If Outkasts new album is as good as they have been in the past then I could see them there "Headlining" in 2011, but even then i still think there are a number of artists who deserve it before they do.

this is so incredibly true. people think just cuz all the indie dorks on here jerk off to a band like arcade fire, that they are headline material but what they dont realize is that headliners are the acts responsible for getting your casual music listener to drop some cash on a ticket. those average joes dont know who the fuck arcade fire is, and dont care. headliners are household names, where you walk up to anybody on the street, ask them to name a song by so and so, and they can do it.



blah blah blah

And on top of all that.... Andre and Big Boi are far too busy doing anything but their own solo missions at the moment.

blah blah blah

out of all the crap arguments you just pulled out of your ass, this is the only thing you got right.

i'd nut in my pants if outkast is on the lineup, but i dont see it happening.

Listen up frat boys!!!

Im not trying to discredit Big Boi or Andre in any way shape or form. I respect them to the upmost as artists and performers. If you look at the first page of this thread you find me w/ a completely different point of veiw last april, but now that ive thought about it no way.

Personaly i dont think GV/COACHELLA would take a gamble on a hiphop artist as a headliner, other than someone who has performed before (ahem Beastie Boys)

On top of that i truely dont bellieve Outkast has the kind of Worlwide appeal that they once did. Yeah sure theyre huge here in the states but lets not forget the entire demographic that makes up[ COACHELLA

And on top of all that.... Andre and Big Boi are far too busy doing anything but their own solo missions at the moment.

I wont say that Outkast wont ever play COACHELLA, cause your right i have no dictation on who does or doesnt, who will who wont....

AND BECAUSE ILL ADMIT WHEN IM WRONG ILL SAY THIS......

If Outkasts new album is as good as they have been in the past then I could see them there "Headlining" in 2011, but even then i still think there are a number of artists who deserve it before they do.

but Andre and Big Boi wont be there in 2010, unless there performing solo.

At this point, 2011 looks more realistic seeing as they'll have this new album out at least half a year in advance. They'll seemingly be more focused on their solo work in early 2010 so he has a valid point.

If Tool and Bjork can each headline twice I think Arcade Fire would be ok.

I hope Wilco headlines then. They are certainly bigger than Arcade Fire.

uuuh nope. you obviously underestimate the following that both those artists have. and probably overestimate arcade fire too.

I don't think Outkast is happening this year. I would love for Slick Rick or Too Short to be there.

Slick Rick belongs at Coachella. He should definitely play. Too Short would just be jokes, I would love to have him come.

Big Boi is doing the festival circuit solo in 2010 (confirmed for Oya with more to follow), so I very much doubt Outkast will be playing. We might get a Big Boi set though.

Boi said it all when he revealed that he and Dre were releasing their solo stuff in the early portion of the year and would wait until releasing the Outkast stuff until later. They're a long shot, but perhaps some urge to get out there fast after recording together will happen just for a special occasion like Coachella, who knows.

What happened to Audiotistic? I remember one in 2000(maybe 99?) with J5 and The Roots. Wish I was in So Cal in 02 - well I was living in Japan so wish I could have visited for Audiotistic in 02. Fun party and if Outkast, Mos Def, Blackalicious, Talib Kweli, and Living Legends were all there....shit.

Audiotistic 2002 was ridiculously amazing. One of the best events I have been to.

Outkast would rip the polo fields. They are definitely capable of headlining.

if outkast happens itll be next year. just sayin. headliners were locked ages ago anyway and i highly doubt it isnt gonna be 3 of the names in the highly rumored part of the confirmed thread

Yeah, 2010 has looked pretty bleak Outkast-wise for awhile now. That's whatevs. What I cannot fucking deal with is people thinking they wouldn't headline. Let's just say this and then let it rest: If (when) Outkast ever plays Coachella, they will headline a day. PERIOD.

Pretty much this. Those translators just aren't that accurate. Having Pavement above those other two made zero sense to me. Were you serious?

Oh. It's a joke. Because people think their favorite bands (AF, Faith No More, Pavement) would headline above much more popular acts that aren't board-favorites (Muse, Beasties, etc). Or they just don't understand how huge some bands are (Outkast).

I was just making fun of delusional people.

Actually, Arcade Fire could headline in 2011, or even this year for that matter, and as someone said already, Outkast is way more likely for 2011 than 2010. Pavement as a headliner...really, the band thinks a bit too highly of themselves...still like them though.
