It’s that time of year again when the world starts turning green, when young lovers make out in empty parks, and when Rhymesayers Entertainment once again announces the lineup for its annual Soundset Festival (not to be confused with the Supersonic or Solid Sound fests).
This year, the festival boasts “two stages delivering over 40 artists performing nine hours of diverse music, an expanded B-Boy/B-Girl DJ tent, live painting exhibit, skate demo area, Slow and Low custom car show and a special Last of the Record Buyers production showcase.” The show will once again be held at Minnesota’s own Canterbury Park and will all take place on Sunday, May 30, rain or shine, starting at 11 AM.
Now on to the good bits! The entire list of confirmed artists is as follows: Atmosphere, Method Man & Redman, Brother Ali, Hieroglyphics (featuring Del The Funky Homosapien, Souls of Mischief, Casual, and Pep Love), P.O.S, Murs, Freeway & Jake One, Eyedea & Abilities, Wiz Khalifa, Cage, DJ Rob Swift, Grieves & Budo, 45 King, People Under The Stairs, BK One, DJ Revolution, Dessa, Yelawolf, Fashawn, Themselves, Busdriver, Toki Wright, Solillaquists of Sound, Prof & Rhazwell, Cecil Otter, Dark Time Sunshine, Ernest Rhodes, A.R.M (M.anifest & Krukid), Mike Dreams, I.B.E, Ice Rod, Plain Ole Bill, Mike 2600, Kid Cut Up, DJ Pratt and DJ Anton. The fest will be hosted by Peter Parker, Kevin Beacham, and, yes, DJ Snuggles.
Tickets cost $35 bucks, go on sale April 2, and are available at the dreaded Ticketmaster.
