If you were one of the 35,000-plus people who made it out to Soundset this year, you probably wouldn’t mind reliving the full day of music and mayhem in the form of a new “recap” video posted today by organizers Rhymesayers Entertainment. And if you’ve never been to the festival or haven’t been in a few years, you really should check out this clip, too.
The video shows off the sprawling layout of Soundset’s new host site, the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, as well as the energy of the performances this year, ranging from main-stage opening acts ZuluZuluu and P.O.S. to headliners Travis Scott and Lauryn Hill. The only one missing in the clip is Lil Uzi Vert, who never provided a real explanation or apology for standing up fans that day.
Per our review of the festival, Soundset 2017 endured several other cancellations and late arrivals among its performers but still came out strong. Rhymesayers also posted a separate video from Sa-Roc, who was one of the brightest stars (literally so in wardrobe terms!) on the festival's smaller but edgier Fifth Element stage. Here are both clips below.
