Soundset 2013 was the biggest of them all. With 28,000 bodies in attendance and Snoop Dogg gracing the stage, Rhymesayers Entertainment showed unprecedented growth for the sixth running of their yearly rap extravaganza at Canterbury Park.
And what better way to capture the spirit and randomness of Soundset than an array of GIFs, courtesy of photographer Erik Hess. Within, you'll see the images of Atmosphere, Snoop, Juicy J, and plenty of audience members caught in decidedly flattering sequences.
Note: Several of these GIFs are presented out of chronological order for our editorial amusement.
Atmosphere's Slug: "Last year, a tornado ate my fucking show." This year, 28,000 folks devoured the goods at Soundset.
This crowd is all "oh HELL yes" like the barricades can't hold them.
Snoop Dogg/Lion's tail was nowhere in sight during Sunday's performance at Soundset, but he wagged this finger plenty...
...and the revelers out there waved 'em like they just didn't care.
Even Snoop's legendary Uncle Junebug got into the flow of the day.
P.O.S. and Ander Other never calmed down after Doomtree got to open for Smash Mouth at Carleton College earlier in the weekend.
None of these girls wanna think about it, they just wanna get down.
Here's Schoolboy Q flapping/rapping in the wind.
Prof may have had a reconstructed knee, but his arms were feeling just fine during his surprise set in place of the conspicuously absent Busta Rhymes.
Tech N9ne's longtime collaborator Krizz Kaliko wants you roiled for one more page of GIFs!
Ander Other, Mike Mictlan, and P.O.S. did whatever it took to stay warm.
Prof even tried to levitate above it all mid-performance...
...but this young woman had better luck.
Tech N9ne rapping faster and stranger than anyone -- into eternity.
Finally, no one was happier to be at Soundset than Three 6 Mafia's Juicy J and his bottle of Moet.
Thanks for all of the memories! See you again next year.
