They haven't performed together in over a decade, but the surviving members of Run-DMC are set to reunite this fall at Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas.

Joseph Simmons, now known as Rev. Run, and Darryl "DMC" McDaniels retired the group after their DJ, Jam Master Jay, was killed in 2002.

It was announced today that the band will be among their performers for the Nov. 2-4 event.

Festival organizers say they plan to donate some of the proceeds to the JMJ Foundation for Music, which works to give youth access to the arts.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group is best known for hits like "Walk This Way," "It's Like That" and "My Adidas."
