The good folks at Rose Presents and Rhymesayers Entertainment have announced the lineup for their 10th annual Soundset Festival, and it looks like Travis Scott and Atmosphere are all set to headline the 2017 iteration of the star-studded event.
Scott is coming off of the most successful year of his rap career with his most recent album, titled Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, moving over 500,000 units in the U.S. alone. Meanwhile, Atmosphere has just completed a 78 date world tour for their Fishing Blues album, and should be ready to turn in a dope set at this year’s festival.
Hosted by Sway Calloway, Heather B, JPRATT & CROS One, the 2017 Soundset Festival will also see performances from Ms. Lauryn Hill, Gucci Mane, Dave East, T.I., Mac Miller, Kevin Gates, Lil Uzi Vert, Pusha T, Brother Ali, D.R.A.M., Ty Dolla $ign, P.O.S, the stand4rd (Allan Kingdom, Bobby Raps, Psymun, Spooky Black), Dr. Octagon (Kool Keith and Dan the Automator), Talib Kweli and Denzel Curry.
Featuring everything from rapper performances to b-boy and b-girl battles, live painting exhibitions and a skatepark, the Soundset Festival provides a diverse experience for everyone who chooses to roll through. That diversity is reflected in the festival’s international reach. The 2016 Soundset Festival brought in more than 32,000 music lovers from 50 states and 19 different countries, and this year’s fest could be even bigger.
This year’s event will be taking place at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds on Sun., May 28. Gates for the festival will open at 11 a.m., and the show will go on rain or shine.
