History

In the eleven years since Soundset began in the Metrodome parking lot in 2008, our attendance has grown from 12,000 to over 30,000 consistently since 2014. Over 280,000 all aged fans have traveled from fifty U.S states, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Africa, Europe, Asia, South America, Australia and New Zealand to experience Soundset in Minnesota.

Rhymesayers’ artists are the foundation of Soundset, with Atmosphere performing every year since the beginning. Since 2008, Soundset has had over 400 different-non repeat performers.

Soundset will celebrate its 12th year anniversary on Sunday, May 26, 2019 Memorial Weekend.
