The good people from Rhymesayers announced the lineup for their annual Soundset Music Festival awhile back and it doesn’t disappoint. Last year was the first year at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds and the event proved to be a huge success. This year’s festival features another STACKED lineup with performances from Ms Lauryn Hill, Gucci Mane, Travi$ Scott, T.I., Lil Uzi Vert, Pusha T, Talib Kweli, and Denzel Curry among MANY others. Locals on this years lineup include the stand4rd, Nazeem & Spencer Joles, Mod Sun, Zuluzuluu, Sophia Eris, and J. Plaza, all of whom deserve their respective slots. General admission tickets are currently available for $74, if you want to go all out you can buy VIP tickets (18+ only) for $194. Although the event will probably not sell out, ticket prices increase as we get closer to the event date; it would be wise to purchase your tickets sooner rather than later.
