A reunited Outkast will kick off the 2014 Coachella Valley Music and Arts festival in April, organizers announced.

The three-day show, slated for the weekends of April 11-13 and 18-20, features the hip-hop duo headlining the Friday night shows. The news was announced via Twitter, in which organizers suggested followers share the status “like a polaroid picture,” a reference to a lyric from the group’s hit “Hey Ya,” off the 2003 album “Spearboxxx/The Love Below.”

Muse and Arcade Fire will headline Saturday and Sunday, respectively.

Dozens of other acts will take the Coachella stage in Indio, Calif., including Lorde, Beck, Zedd, Nas, HAIM, Ellie Goulding, MGMT, and Motorhead.
