Late rapper Nate Dogg is reportedly set to appear at the Coachella festival in California this weekend - as a hologram.

The hip-hop star, real name Nathaniel Dwayne Hale, passed away in March, 2011, after suffering complications from multiple strokes.

However, the 41 year old is set to rise from the dead for the much-hyped music festival and "perform" a short set with his former 213 bandmate Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre on Sunday during their all-star headlining set.

According to, the late rapper's image will be projected onto a large screen beside the stage, allowing both artists to complete their gig with the support of the hit-maker's vocals.

Reports suggest Snoop and Nate's 213 bandmate Warren G, Eminem and Wiz Khalifa will join the headliners on stage for their two Coachella shows, spread out over two weekends.
