LOS ANGELES — Rap duo OutKast will headline the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April, ending a half-decade hiatus for one of hip-hop's most popular and important acts.

OutKast joins Arcade Fire and Muse as headliners for the festival that plays over two weekends in Indio, Calif. Other acts scheduled include Pharrell Williams, Beck, Queens of the Stone Age and Lorde. The reunited The Replacements also will appear.

Pittsburgh punk band Anti-Flag also is scheduled to play.

Andre “Andre 3000” Benjamin and Antwan “Big Boi” Patton came out of Atlanta with a unique sound two decades ago and became one of rap's top-selling and most-lauded acts, winning the Grammy Award for album of the year for double album “Speakerboxxx/The Love Below.” They have not released an album as OutKast since 2006's “Idlewild,” a soundtrack.
