Hip hop duo Outkast is set to headline the Governors Ball Music Festival in June.  A rep for the festival confirmed the news with Rolling Stone today.  “André 3000” Benjamin (formerly known as Dré) and Antwan “Big Boi” Patton will carry the torch — so to speak, for the three-day, multi-stage music festival. The event joins forces June 6th thru the 8th at New York City’s Randall’s Island Park.

Last year’s Governors Ball featured a theatrical set by Guns N’ Roses, rainy performances by Japandroids and Bloc Party and a Kanye West show that previewed songs from his then-unreleased Yeezus album.

The duo is one of the most successful hip-hop groups of all time, having received six Grammy Awards. Over 25 million copies have been sold of OutKast’s eight releases: five studio albums, a greatest hits release, and the Grammy Award-winning (for Album of the Year) Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, a double album containing a solo album from each member.

Along with their commercial success, OutKast has maintained an experimental approach in their music and are widely praised for their originality and artistic content, according to Wikipedia.
