Kid Cudi, Childish Gambino, and Raury to open OutKast: ATLast

Legends recruit young stars.

  • Raury joins Kid Cudi and Childish Gambino as openers for the OutKast: ATLast one-day festival.

Kid Cudi, Childish Gambino, and 18-year-old acoustic wunderkind Raury, will be three of the opening acts performing at the OutKast: ATLast one-day festival. Both Childish Gambino and Raury grew up around Stone Mountain and have cited OutKast as a major influence on their music. Kid Cudi’s most recent ties to ‘Kast can be traced to the Grammy-winning rapper/rocker’s collaboration with Big Boi for “She Hates Me,” off of 2012’s Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors.

For Raury in particular, who recently performed a cover of “Bombs Over Baghdad” during his first-ever live show (RaurFest), the chance to open for Andre 3000 and Big Boi is humbling to say the least. As well as OutKast, the kid behind “God’s Whisper” also calls Kid Cudi and Childish Gambino two of his biggest inspirations.

“To perform on the same stage as the people that inspired me to do music is an overwhelming feeling,” Raury told CL. “The joy, excitement, happiness, and fear must be exactly what it feels like to be alive. I’m glad OutKast is giving me the opportunity to show Atlanta who’s really gonna be the future of this city.”

Tickets go on sale today. You can purchase your tickets on the official OutKast: ATLast website, Ticketmaster, phone (800-745-8300), and the Center Stage box office.
