Thousands of music fans made the trek to Canterbury Park in Shakopee on Sunday for this year’s edition of Soundset Festival and proved a little rain doesn’t stop the turn up! It was a sea of 30,000 smiling faces as the rain poured down all day and we caught some of the best independent hip hop in the world (Atmosphere, Dessa, Yela Wolf, and more) side by side with some of the biggest hip hop artists in the game (Ice Cube, Dilated Peoples, Ludacris, J. Cole, and more). Here’s a review from the tweets and photos from those who were there as well as a playlist so you can keep the turn up going till the next Soundset, which will take place at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in 2016!
Local Manny Phesto kicked things off in the Fifth Element tent!
Dessa brought the emotions over on the main stage.
To be honest, we were all high school girls when Luda came out!
Ludacris selfie game is… well… ludicrous(ly awesome).
The only appropriate pose for the day.
Shouts to Soundset for having a million porta potties.
Familia keeping things fun & friggin’ gross!
Trying to cry money instead of tears during Father’s set in the Fifth Element tent!
*Big Sean voice* “Oh God ..”
The after effects are REAL.
THE BEST DAY! Thank you Rhymesayers, and we’ll see you next year at the State Fair Grounds!
