Every year, Atmosphere, the long-running and cult-beloved Minneapolis underground rap institution, curate and headline Soundset, their own Minneapolis festival. As the festival has grown throughout the years, it’s been fascinating to see the way the lineups those shows have evolved.

Atmosphere always book their peers and heroes, so the festivals are always full indie-rap staples and ’90s titans, as well as the artists on the group’s own Rhymesayers label. But increasingly, they’ve also been booking mainstream rap stars. This year, the festival will turn 10, and the lineup is as weird and wonderful as ever.

The 2018 edition Soundset goes down 5/27 at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. Atmosphere will share headlining duties with Logic and Migos, which is about as disparate a set rap headliners as I can imagine.

The bill also features the rap-adjacent Erykah Badu, as well as people like Tyler, The Creator, Brockhampton, Ice-T, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Hieroglyphics, Young M.A, Rapsody, Westside Gunn and Conway, and Kamiayah. The Wu-Tang Clan will do something to celebrate the 25th anniversary their classic debut Enter The 36 Chambers.

Check out the lineup below.
