Best Hip-Hop Festival Minneapolis 2014 - Soundset
Soundset 2013 wasn't a success just because Snoop Dogg was on the lineup, but he sure didn't hurt matters. Pulling a record 28,000 fans out to Canterbury Park, the sixth running of the Rhymesayers Entertainment music festival showed that it still has room to grow. Minnesota rap fans are so dedicated that a late-May grab bag of extreme heat, frigid air, torrential rains, and the threat of a tornado won't keep them from standing together to hear some of the best national talent ready to burst, and an ever-growing slate of local titans, led by Atmosphere. Everything about this event is efficient, unique, and powerful, and the folks at Rhymesayers always do their part to keep the ticket prices low so that it's a welcoming experience for the next generation.
