As much as it pained me to miss Outkast at Governors Ball, I found comfort in the fact that I’d be able to catch them at Firefly. Believe it or not, this actually wasn’t my first time seeing the dynamic duo. Believe it or not, I actually saw the duo back in 2002 at Giants Stadium, not that I truly appreciated it or anything.

The duo have been playing festival after festival, but showed no signs of fatigue or wear and tear. Now with the rust of their debut Coachella show much behind them, Outkast were firing on all cylanders, kicking their set off with a monstrous performance of “B.O.B.” From there it was a trip down memory lane, stretching as far back as early cuts such as “Rosa Parks” and “ATLiens” and bringing it forward with “The Way You Move”, “Ms. Jackson”, and of course, “Hey Ya”, which saw Andre 3000 bring out a bunch of young girls to dance on stage with him.

Dressed in a “Children of the cornbread” shirt and a white wig, Andre 3000 showed his true performer side. If he’s the flashy one, Big Boi can be seen as the more reserved member of the group. That’s not to say that Big Boi wasn’t a showman himself, he was having plenty of fun of son alongside Andre. Just seeing these two on stage together looking like they’re enjoying what their doing was enough for me. Add in an amazing setlist with a tight backing band and mesmerizing stage set-up, and you had the Outkast reunion show that we all had been waiting for.

The show was everything I hoped it would be and then some. As they walked off the stage after the crowd-pleasing closing mark of “The Whole World”, I went back to my camp fully smiling.
