This year’s Governor’s Ball Music Festival is slated for June 6-8 on Randall’s Island in NYC. Though the full lineup has yet to be announced (stay tuned), we’ve received word of a particularly noteworthy headliner: Outkast. This marks the second confirmed performance for the newly reunited hip-hop duo, following Coachella’s official line-up announcement yesterday.

For nostalgia purposes, watch the live performance below, which takes places in the alternative universe of 2003.
