The seventh Soundset festival is almost here. It’s going to be almost ten hours of non-stop hip-hop music with artists like 2-Chainz, G-Eazy, Wiz Khalifa and more. So far, 37 artists have been confirmed and more are to come. This is one of the best hip-hop lineups that will happen all year. Check out the line-up announcements and we’ll update you as soon as more information comes out.
Among some of the most exciting acts are Nas and Atmosphere. Nas will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of Illmatic, his debut album. He’ll be performing the entire track list from that album in honor of his big break. Atmosphere will be returning for the second time as a main stage headliner. Also, EarlWolf will be there, made up of two members from Odd Future. They might be telling you all about “Orange Juice” if you’re lucky enough to hear them live.
The festival will take place in Shakopee, Minnesota, one of the friendliest states, at Canterbury Park on Sunday May 25th, 2014. This show typically draws tens of thousands of people and features four huge stages. DJs will perform live, B-Boy battles will ensue and artwork, cars, and skateboard demos will be shown. This year’s event is projected to be the biggest one yet. And, really, who doesn’t want to go to Minnesota? Buy some tickets, bring your bathing suit and jump in one of the thousands of lakes. The boys are gentlemen and the women are sweet. Let’s all just hope for a tornado-free show.
