Soundset 2016 Wrap Up | New Location, New Beginnings



On Sunday, May 29th, 2016, the 9th annual Soundset Festival opened its gates to over 30,000 attendees, and thus, the largest Soundset turnout to date enjoyed the all-day event in a new, yet familiar setting - The Minnesota State Fairgrounds on the Midway, in Saint Paul, MN.

Thank you to all those who supported this move, and to everyone who helped make this day a success. From the performing artists, to the working crews, to all of you fans who came from every possible corner of the United States, as well as from all around the world, including countries like Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom, China, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Brazil, Costa Rica, Netherlands, India, Sri Lanka, and more. Thank you to all the fans and supporters, worldwide!
