Wake the kids and fire up the boombox, the Soundset 2018 line-up is here! Announced by Prof on Go 95.3’s own Morning Show with Auggie 5000 and Sophia Eris today, this year’s Soundset line-up may be the festival has ever produced!
Representing hip-hop across all scenes, regions and eras, Soundset proves on its 10th anniversary that it’s the must-see hip-hop festival this year.
Leading the charge is longtime friend of Rhymesayers and current lifesaver Logic. Year of the Migos II will also continue with Migos in a prime position. Of course, the long-standing dons of Soundset, Atmosphere, will kick off our 11th consecutive summer. The Wu-Tang Clan will be performing a special set commemorating the 25th anniversary of their debut Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers.
Other notables include Erykah Badu, Odd Future’s Tyler, The Creator and his spiritual successors in Brockhampton, viral phenom Russ, and wunderkind Jaden Smith with dad’s old friend DJ Jazzy Jeff.
Lest you think Soundset has only been paying attention to Instagram follower counts, the festival has also continued to highlight lyrical luminaries and grimier talents such as Young M.A., Westside Gunn and Conway, Murs, Evidence, J.I.D., Rapsody and more.
As last year proved, Soundset’s first lineup announcement is hardly the final word, so keep it locked on Go 95.3 for the most up-to-date info about Midwest’s biggest hip-hop festival.
