"The biggest indie-rap festival of the year..." URB.com

After their sold out To All My Friends and Welcome to Minnesota tours Atmosphere returns this year to the Soundset mainstage in support of their upcoming April 12th album releaseThe Family Sign. On the heels of his highly successful and critically acclaimed release Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, Big Boi, one half of superstar combo Outkast, brings his legendary live show and catalog to the Twin Cities for one of the best hip hop sets you'll see all year. Slaughterhouse, including the full lineup of Joell Ortiz, Joe Budden, Royce da 5'9" & Crooked I perform together in Minnesota for the first time in 2 years! Referred to as "one of independent Rap's strongest voices" by HipHopDX, Brother Ali will once again deliver his raw emotion on the main stage. Fly Society founder and Jet Life CEO Curren$y makes his Soundset debut. Soundset veteran Blueprint takes the stage in support of his upcoming April 5th release Adventures in Counter-Culture! Named one of XXL Magazine's "2011 Freshmen," Mac Miller makes his Minnesota debut performance at Soundset. Doomtree returns with the entire crew for their first mainstage performance. In support of his upcoming Rhymesayers debut release Cat & Dogs, Evidence teams up with Rakaa-Iriscience, hot off his new release Crown of Thorns and DJ Babu to bring you a special combined set showcasing their solo efforts while giving fans some Dilated classics as well. And this year we're proud to announce a first ever De La Soul Soundset performance. Whether young or old this iconic hip hop group's performance will be a favorite of the year!

With options of two stages delivering over 40 artists performing nine hours of diverse music, an expanded B-Boy/B-Girl DJ tent which includes the newly added Red Bull EmSee Battle, live painting exhibit, skate demo area, Soundset custom car show and a special Last of the Record Buyers production showcase, Soundset 2011 is guaranteed to provide fun for the whole family!

Fixed.

Looking forward to this. Always wanted to see De La Soul. Only thing that could have made the line up better, IMO, is having Prof on the bill. And maybe Yelawolf. I knew I should have gone last year.

Awesome line-up. MN hip-hop represent. Even though Atmosphere was kind of boring the last time I saw them it's always fun to see them outdoors.

But, alas, I'm always at my cabin this weekend. Haven't made it to one Soundset and I live 15 mins away. Whatever.

If you can't find ANY Atmosphere or ANYTHING from the entire Doomtree collective you enjoy there is something wrong with you. That's if you're into hip-hop of course.
