An eclectic lineup of new and classic hip-hop stars will fill out the eighth edition of Soundset, which returns to Canterbury Park in May. The festival's big-name headliners for 2015 include Rhymesayers' own Atmosphere, as well as J. Cole, Ice Cube, Big Sean, and Ludacris. The local contingent of the bill features Brother Ali, Dessa, Dem Atlas, Sean Anonymous, and plenty more.
Check out the full lineup up for Minnesota's biggest day in hip-hop below.
The familiar setup of two alternating main stages and the Fifth Element tent ensures a nonstop dose of beats, rhymes, and life over a nine-hour day. Further distractions come via the Essential Elements tent featuring the Freestyle Session Minnesota B-Boy/B-Girl competition. There's also the Skateboard Showdown, the Custom Car Show, and the Last of the Record Buyers production showcase.
