Soundset 2011: Atmosphere, Big Boi, De La Soul, Doomtree, Brother Ali
The Soundset festival revealed its much-anticipated 2011 lineup this morning, and there are a few national surprises amongst the local mainstays: In addition to headliners Atmosphere, Brother Ali, and the full Doomtree crew, this year's fest will feature sets by De La Soul and Big Boi.
While you let that info sink in -- and while we ponder the insane possibility of Big Boi inviting recent collaborator Owl City to the stage during his set -- here's the rest of the lineup for this year's festival:
Slaughterhouse (Joell Ortiz, Joe Budden, Royce da 5'9", Crooked I)
Grieves & Budo
Zion I & The Grouch
Sab The Artist
Edan with special guest Paten Locke
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
Mr. Gene Poole
Noam The Drummer
Kid Cut Up
Hosted by Toki Wright, Carnage and Kevin Beacham.
