AMERICAN rap duo Outkast are expected to be announced as one of the headliners of this year's Splendour in the Grass music festival this morning.

Andre 3000 and Big Boi recently reunited for America's Coachella Festival, their first live performance together since 2002.

The group reportedly listed Splendour in the Grass in the events section of its website briefly before removing the post, but not before several news websites took screen grabs which show the band is apparently scheduled to perform on the festival's opening day on July 25.

The duo found initial chart success with their song Rosa Parks and released six albums before the two members parted ways to work on solo projects.

Splendour in the Grass would fit into the band's previously announced world tour, which sees it play the Pemberton Music Festival in Canada on July 20 and then the Fuji Rock Festival in Japan on July 27.

The full Splendour in the Grass line-up will be revealed today on Triple J's breakfast radio show.

The three-day festival moved to its new home at the North Byron Parklands at Wooyung last year.
