For the better part of a decade, Minneapolis rap indie Rhymesayers has been bringing its one-day rap festival Soundset to Minnesota. Rhymesayers big dogs Atmosphere headline every year, but after that, things tend to get loopy. The bill is generally a fascinating mix of commercial heavyweights, nostalgia-circuit greats, and acts from the same backpack underground that produced Atmosphere. It seems safe to say that this is the one festival where you can see both A$AP Rocky and Aesop Rock this summer.
This year, Soundset is coming to the Minnesota State Fairgrounds 5/29, and Atmosphere are sharing headlining duties with A$AP Rocky and Future. The bill also features people like the Roots, Common, Danny Brown, Anderson .Paak, Pharoahe Monch, Mick Jenkins, and DJ Marley Marl. Here’s the full lineup:
Machine Gun Kelly
Aesop Rock and Homeboy Sandman (Lice)
Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals
Murs & 9th Wonder

DJ Marley Marl
I Self Devine & Muja Messiah Present 9th House
