If you don’t have your tickets yet, don’t wait much longer. Soundset is just a week away and believe me when I say that you won’t want to miss this one! Soundset will be taking over the fairgrounds on Sunday, May 26th.
Soundset is an indie hip hop festival put on by Rhymesayers Entertainment that was started in 2008 at the Metrodome Parking Lot. Since then it has continued to grow each year moving first to Canterbury Park and then finding a new home at the State Fairgrounds a couple of years ago. From major hip-hop stars to more local and underground artists, there’s truly something for everybody at this beautiful run and stunningly organized festival.
SZA, Run the Jewels, Lil Wayne, and Black Star (Mos Def & Talib Kweli) headline this year’s lineup. Other notable acts include G-Eazy, Lil Uzi Vert, DMX, Beast Coast (Flashbush Zombies & Joey Bada$$), Tierra Whack, Atmosphere, Tech N9ne, Royce Da 5’9″, Taylor Bennett, and Epic Beard Men (Sage Francis & B. Dolan), among others.
Beyond the music are the truly amazing experiences scattered throughout the festival grounds. From The Last of the Record Buyers Production Showcase, Soundset Custom Car Show, Familia Skateboard Showdown, Soundset B-Boy / B-Girl Invitational, Live Painting, and multiple carnival rides, rest up because there’s a lot to fit into this one day fest.
Tickets are still available HERE and are still at the tier 2 level so make sure to get them before they hit tier 3 (which will be any day now).
