Dr Dre is reportedly planning to bring Tupac Shakur and Nate Dogg 'back to life' during his headline set at this weekend's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California.

The rapper headlines the festival on Sunday (April 15) and again on the following Sunday (April 22) and is reportedly planning to include holograms of the dead hip-hop stars in his set.

According to Los Angeles radio station KROQ, Tupac will appear during a performance of his 1995 hit 'California Love', which Dre produced. Meanwhile, while Nate Dogg is set to appear in the same way for 'The Next Episode', which was the lead single from Dre's 1999 album '2001'.

It is also reported that Dre will be joined by a series of living guest stars during his show, including Eminem, Wiz Khalifa and Warren G. Snoop Dogg has already been confirmed to perform.

Dr Dre is still yet to release his long-awaited new album 'Detox'. The album, which the producer has been working on for almost a decade, will be Dr Dre's first album since '2001', and the rapper has previously indicated it will be his last full studio record.

Two singles have been released so far: 'Kush' and 'I Need A Doctor', which featured Eminem and Skylar Grey. You can watch the video for 'I Need A Doctor' by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

As well as Dr Dre, Pulp, Radiohead, the newly reunited At The Drive-In, The Black Keys, The Shins, Bon Iver, Jeff Mangum, Godspeed You Black Emperor, Mazzy Star, Madness, Florence + the Machine, Justice, Arctic Monkeys and The Horrors will play sets at Coachella this weekend.
