Soundset Festival has announced its full lineup for this summer. Highlights include Big Boi, De La Soul, Atmosphere and many others from the hip-hop and indie-rap communities. The festival happens in Minnesota’s Canterbury Park, rain or shine, on May 29.
The first Soundset Festival was in 2008, and last year 18,000-plus people showed up to watch more than 40 artists perform in the park. Soundset is one of the only summer music festivals to feature exclusively new voices in rap and hip-hop, and the festival will also feature B-Boy/B-Girl battles, live graffiti art paintings and a skateboarding demonstration in addition to the musical performances.
