Soundset line up announced

Soundset line up announced

Brother Ali with 14,000 of his best friends at Soundset 08.

Okay-- maybe the Roots Picnic's lineup can win by a nose (Public Enemy playing Nation of Millions in its entirety?!). But Soundset, the annual festival organized by Rhymesayers, our dread sovereign of local labels, has spent the last few years being big and burly enough to sit anywhere it likes. And this year's line-up, which was announced this morning, perfectly justifies the move from the Metrodome parking lot to Canterbury Downs.

Click below the jump for all the details, grab your Kangol, and start arranging rides to and from Shakopee. If last year was any indication, it's going to be a long, loud, sweaty day.

Slug and a ponytail at Soundset 2008.
