The Soundset Festival surpassed expectations on May 25 during Memorial Day weekend. The seventh annual hip-hop music festival occurred at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minn., drawing a sold-out crowd of 30,000 fans just outside Minneapolis.
Produced by Rhymesayers Entertainment, the event has matured over the years. Seemingly built around hip-hop outfit Atmosphere, the Minneapolis-based group has closed each year with a headline set. This year's festival featured just under forty performances spread across four stages. Music kicked off at 11 a.m. and continued non-stop until Atmosphere left the stage a little after 9 p.m.
Other noteable artists included Nas, Wiz Khalifa, Cypress Hill, 2 Chainz, EarlWolf and Chance The Rapper. Given its developing legacy, there's no doubt 2015 will bring another fantastic year of music to Canterbury Park.
