Rhymesayers Entertainment is bringing its Soundset Festival back for a ninth straight year, and moving to a bigger venue to boot: the annual Twin Cities hip-hop showcase will take place at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds this year, with twin main stages and more than 40 artists on its schedule. Atmosphere once again leads the strong lineup, which also will feature A$AP Rocky, Future, Common, The Roots, Machine Gun Kelly, Danny Brown, PROF and Lizzo as headliners.

Taking place on Sunday, May 29, the bill features a fresh mix of hip-hop vets (Pharoahe Monch, Murs & 9th Wonder, Aesop Rock & Homeboy Sandman, DJ Marley Marl) and up-and-coming talent (Post Malone, Anderson .Paak, Raury, Mick Jenkins, Goldlink), as well as a skateboard showcase, custom car show and live graffiti, along with plenty of other artists. Tickets go on sale Mar. 4.

Rhymesayers capped 2015 with a massive show at Minneapolis' Target Center in December to celebrate the label's 20th anniversary. Check the full lineup for Soundset 2016 below.
