Looking Forward: Soundset 2016

Doomtree is one of the acts set to perform at Minnesota’s Soundset festival.

Minnesota’s very own Soundset Music Festival is returning for another year of incredible hip-hop acts and performances.

Since it’s beginning in 2008, Soundset has become a staple of summertime music festivals in the Midwest. Seeing more than 30,000 attendees pass through its gates since its inception, Soundest has established itself as an exception entertainment event.

The Rhymesayers Entertainment curated festival has featured numerous legends throughout the years, such as NaS, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg and J. Cole. Soundset is beginning to receive well deserved hype and has become a sort of holiday for hip-hop heads.

This years festival is going to be bigger than ever. Soundset has relocated from Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minnesota, to the Minnesota State Fairground’s Midway.

There will be multiple stages and upwards of 40 artists at this year’s Soundset. Some of the big names that will be in attendance include Atmosphere, A$AP Rocky, Anderson Paak, The Roots, Machine Gun Kelly, Danny Brown and Future. The musicians’ set times will be announced through the Soundset app in the near future.

Soundset is more than just a hip hop festival, however. It will also feature a classic car show, skateboard competition and B-Boy/B-Girl battles. Local vendors of goods and food will be in attendance as well.

Apparently, this year’s Soundset even features a ferris wheel.

Soundset should be on any music fan’s summer bucket list.
